  1. Fold 8-1/2 by 5-1/2 inch blue-green cardstock in half for card base.
  2. Stamp Tree Circle with black ink onto Mixed Media White Paper and color.
  3. Cut with a circle die smaller than the black border of Circle Tree stamp or use scissors.
  4. Dab embossing ink over the image and sprinkle with Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder. Shake excess off and heat emboss.
  5. Run Thicket Stencil and 4 by 5-1/4 inch Mixed Media White Paper through a die cut machine using the manufactures plate instructions for embossing, BUT see this video FIRST if you haven't embossed with a metal stencil.
  6. Place the Thicket embossed paper down into a corner of the MISTI tool held in place with magnets, then center the colored Circle Tree image on top and hold in place with a sticky note.
  7. Stamp the big word with black ink so it overlaps onto the circle. Repeat for a solid image.
  8. Remove the Tree Circle image and stamp the big word again on the Thicket layer so it's solid image.
  9. Repeat with smaller words for the sentiment.
  10. Adhere the Thicket paper onto the card base then adhere Circle Tree with foam adhesive aligning the big word with the overlap.
