Instructions:
This hinged tent fold card when finished measures 18.5 cm x 14.0 cm
Make a hinged tent fold base card to the measurements above. Cut a card front from the design paper in the paper collection, 17. 5 cm x 13.0 cm. Distress the edges with the distressing tool. Adhere this to the card base with foam tape or Double Dots.


Taking the green card stock, die cut the eyelet oval base. While the die is still in the card stock, bring ink to the circle with the foam ink tool so it is shaded. 



To make the card stock boarder, take the boarder die and green card stock and die cut on both sides of the cardstock to form a lace boarder. Adhere this across the card then adhere the oval with the foam tape or Double Dots, this forms your card front.


Taking the crafters companion card stock and the gold embossing powder stamp the sentiment and the flowers from the circle sentiment stamp from the 'It’s All Good, stamp set. Cut the sentiment to a flag banner. Ink the edges. Using the Archival ink. Stamp and die cut the tree. Die cut 4 extra tree cuts using the white card stock to enable you to use all the layers to make a chipboard embellishment from the tree. Apply color the tree, owls and flowers with the Derwent pencils.


Cut the tree truck 2 cm from the roots. Align with a 2 cm gap in the trunk
Align and adhere the tree to the card, leaving a 2 cm gap in the join. This will lengthen the tree trunk. Using the ribbon, make a double triple bow, adhere this across the card where the cardstock lace boarder is. Use the glue dot to secure the bow. With foam tape or double dots, adhere the sentiment banner so it will cover the gap. Once the flowers have been colored and fussy cut, adhere on each side of the ribbon bow.


When all is dry and secure, apply stickles to all the flower centers.
