Ink the edges of the base trees and dotted tree using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Using a blending tool with foam, blend Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam over the entire surface of each star. Ink the edges of each star using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. From the Planner Essentials – 14 die, die cut the Merry Christmas sentiment out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step Six. Adhere the 4″ stitched rectangle to the 4 1/2″ stitched rectangle. Foam square the 1 1/2″ fishtail 1″ from the right and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the 1″ fishtail 7/8″ from the left and all the way to the top of the 4″ stitched rectangle. The fishtails will over lap.

Step Seven. Adhere the trees together. On the dotted tree, adhere the small star at the top. On the chevron tree, adhere the medium star at the top. Foam square the chevron tree 1/4″ from the right and 5/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle. Use adhesive and foam squares to adhere the dotted tree 1/2″ from the left and 3/8″ from the bottom of the 4″ stitched rectangle.
