Funky Christmas Scrapbook Page: Layered Holiday Tree
I have here a dark background paper that I specifically chose because it provides a nice contrast with the colors of our tree that we will make in a while.
This background paper is from Kaiser Craft's pack called "Base Coat." I use this a lot because of its gorgeous texturized effect which is particularly perfect for our project today.
For our tree, let's choose our cardstock set from a pack of Kaiser Craft as well, called "Paisley Days." The lovely thing about using cardstock from a set like this is that their designs and colors already complement each other.
Then, carefully arrange them from the smallest length of cardstock (top of the tree) to the cardstock with the longest length (base of the tree).
Now that I've cut it up, I can see that it's going to turn into a funky tree!
Next, we need to shred the bottom half of our cut-out rectangular pieces with our scissors.
Now that the shredding is done, let's put our tree in place!
Hold your tree down, and draw a slanted line over the two sides of the tree so you know how to cut your cardstock and make it seem more like a real tree with a triangular figure.
Once the edges are cut, layer them up and stick them down on your background paper.
Now that the tree is sticking well onto our background, we can ruffle the shredded parts of our tree to make it seem more multi-dimensional.
To complete our Christmas tree, let's cut out a little tree trunk from the same cardstock we used earlier and put it underneath the tree!
Finally, we can add our photograph to the right of our Christmas tree. Doesn't that look fabulous? It's really simple and easy to make!
Try it on your own and see what beauty you can create with this lovely technique! I hope you've enjoyed it and I look forward to seeing you soon.
