How to make
  • Cut a piece of blue backing paper a little smaller than the front of the A5 card, and a piece of white card a little smaller than the blue paper.
  • Onto the piece of white card stamp the tree in the top top left in Rich Cocoa for the trunk and Bamboo Leaves for the top, stamp the bird on the top branch of the tree in Rich Cocoa.
  • Make a mask of the pointed leaves and apples, stamp the apples on the tree in Peeled Paint leaving room for a leaf with each apple, second generation stamp the solid leaf in Peeled Paint and over stamp also using Peeled Paint, using the masked where needed.
  • Die cut a brown wheelbarrow add a gold brad to the wheel, mark a line just below the top of where the wheelbarrow will be on the card, stamp a stack of five apples in Peeled Paint onto the line and one to the bottom of the tree, stamp a bird in Rich Cocoa on the top of the apples.
