Playful Woodsy Friends


Die-cut Frame a Card Leafy Border 5 x 7” outline die in brown and the leafy design in green from Woodsy Wonderland Collection and adhere each together. Adhere all 4 sides of Leafy Borders together by securing cardstock pieces behind each mitre corner overlapping the two adjacent strips.

Die-cut 5 x 7” scene from Woodsy Wonderland Paper Collection and adhere to the same size cardstock and onto the back matching brown paper as used for the border.

Cut black cardstock strips 2x 5 x 7” and 2x 7 x 7” lay portrait in Scor-Pal and score every 1/2”. Fold back and forth (concertina) burnishing the creases. Lay 7 x 7” pieces so the last crease is on the outside and the open valley is pointing inward (photos on my blog). Take a 5 x 7” piece and push into the open end of the 7 x 7” piece. Secure the last and first pieces with double sided tape (try to keep each side at right angles tip: use your craft mat gridlines as a guide). Adhere the 2nd 7 x 7” piece creating a flat bottom shaped ‘U’. Then finally feed in the last 5 x 7” piece to create an open frame. Note: the remainder of the concertina is loose, but this allows maximum accordion movement within the frame.

Adhere the scene on the back of the frame facing inward (brown facing outward). Adhere the Leafy Border to the front of the frame (you can choose to leave this until after the die-cuts have been adhered inside but measure the height of the frame first as a guide so you can see the die-cuts clearly).

Stamp in Jet Black onto white cardstock Woodsy Wonderland, Woodsy Critters and Woodsy Landscape images. Colour with Zig Clean Real Brush Markers and die-cut with coordinating dies. Adhere the tallest/largest die-cuts within the box to the back and get smaller as you come forward. If required, add black cardstock stilts to the die-cut so they can sit higher inside so not covered by the Leafy Border Frame.

Add die-cuts to the outside of the frame to continue the scene using dots on some to bring further forward.

Cut out ‘Best Wishes’ sentiment from the Woodsy Wonderland Paper Collection and mat onto black cardstock adhere to the top of the frame.

On the back of the frame, mat and layer Ornate Oval and stamp the sentiment in Fern Green ‘Hope your day is as Special as you are’ from Just For You Sentiments Cling Stamp Set.
