This layout has been created with the new Mint Wishes collection from Kaisercraft - a super sweet collection.
I decided to use two of the same patterned papers with the trees as background paper, to create the mirror image of trees in the ice.
I use wooden papers to create the bottom edge and used some of the collectables and wooden embellishments as decoration.
The trees have been created with Kaisercraft tree dies.
The animals, are black and white photos in different sizes.
Photo: Fussy cut animal 3cm, 5cm and 6 cm (1 ¼”, 2” and 2 3/8”) tall.
Cut a piece of FOREST (reverse) 13,5cm (5 3/8”) from the bottom, keeping the forest part of the paper. Cut a second FOREST (reverse) paper 19 cm (7 ½”) from the bottom, keeping the forest part of the paper. Keep the smallest piece of paper at the top. Turn the largest piece of paper up side down, and glue it underneath the top paper. The paper should be 29,5 cm (11 5/8”) tall together. The two papers should show a forest just above the centre of the page, and the reflection of the forest underneath. Cut the side of the page, so the page now measure 29,5cm x 29x5cm (11 5/8” x 11 5/8”).
Mount black cardstock behind the background paper, to create a black frame behind the layout.
Tear pieces of FROSTED (reverse), and add the to the bottom of the page. Leave the FROSTED (reverse) 4cm to 6cm from the bottom of the page. Add the layers of FROSTED (reverse) paper strips with 3D foam tape to add dimension. Add a thin 1cm teared strip of FROSTED (reverse), just below where the two pieces of FOREST (reverse) paper meet, at the centre of the page.
Die cut trees with the Fir Trees die from the FRESH PINE and left over from the light part of the FOREST (reverse) paper. Add some gesso to some of the trees. Add the trees above the FROSTED (reverse) paper strip, to create dimension to the forest. Add some of the greenery from the Collectables in between the trees.
Create tussocks with the grass die from the Decorative Die and Stamp Tropical Beach and FRESH PINE paper. Create two leaves from the leaf die from DD707 Layerd Flowers and FRESH PINE paper. Add gesso to the leaves. Add the tussocks along and just underneath the teared FROSTED (reverse) paper at the bottom of the page. Add the white flower from the collectables to the bottom left side of the page. Add the leaves underneath the flower. Add tiny green pearls in the centre of the flower. Add the text “Be Jolly” from the Flourish Pack to the bottom right side of the page. Create to banners with left over paper from FROSTED (reverse) and FLANNELETTE. Add the Christmas Wishes circular collectable to le left of the “Be Jolly” text, with the wo banners sticking out from the left side of the circle. Cut out the words “Believe”, “Peace” and “Joy” from the FRESH PINE (reverse) paper and add these around the forest part of the page. Add the animals to your layout on the mirror part of the forest on the background paper. Add green and white beads.
