Decorate a Tree with Nuvo Drops

Decorate a Tree with Nuvo Drops

This is one of my favorite cards that I've made in a while. I used Nuvo Drops to create the baubles in the tree.

Supplies Used

Additional Supplies

  • Cardstock – White
  • Cardstock – Cream
  • Cardstock – Forest Green
  • Envelope – Kraft
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Colored Pencil – Gold or Brown

Instructions

The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 4-1/4″ mark on the short side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 5-1/2″. Now, you have a top folding base!

For the other cuts you’ll need:

  • Cardstock – Cream, cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ and a scrap for oval die (2nd largest in set)
  • Cardstock – Forest Green, cut to 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″

Mount the sentiment onto the long Rock a Block using the center line and stamp it, placing the block at the bottom of the card.

Stamp the Mini Cone in Fallen Leaves ink around the perimeter of the card, rotating the StampRight Placement Line toward the outside of the card. Start the stamping and end the stamping at the sentiment. Stamp the Mini Cone again in Acorn ink. Stamp the Tiny Cone in Acorn ink. Stamp the Mini Conifer Branch in Shady Lane ink, rotating the stem toward the outside. Stamp the Tiny Branch in Acorn ink. Fill in any white spaces with the Mini Conifer Branch in Shady Lane. Edge the entire perimeter of the card with the Shady Lane ink.

Mount the tree stamp and ink it in Shady Lane, everything except the tree trunk. Ink the trunk in Fallen Leaves ink. Stamp it in center of the oval die cut. Ink the Bird Stamps in Twilight ink and stamp each one on a branch facing each other. Using a blending brush, darken the edge of the oval die cut with Rich Cocoa ink, then run the edge along the ink pad to darken it further. Create a shadow for the tree with a gold or brown colored pencil. Attach foam tape to the back of the die cut, remove backing paper and stick to the stamped card panel. Glue the panel to the green cardstock and then glue that to the card base.

Add baubles to the tree with gold and silver Crystal Nuvo Drops. Using body-warmed Nuvo Drops, hold the bottle straight up and down and squeeze. It may have a peak, but should self level. Do this wherever you want baubles.

For the envelope, stamp the Cone and Branches across the back flap of the envelope using the same colors we used on the card.
