Wouldn’t it be a delightful surprise to be walking through the woods and come upon this magical place?!  It really is a ‘happy trail’!  See below for how I created this card…

  1. My first steps use the Sizzix Christmas Shadow Box die set.  To start, I cut a 4.25” x 5.5” piece of light blue cardstock and adhered two tree die cuts cut from kraft cardstock. 
  1. I then die cut the arch out of a 4.25” x 5.5” piece of brown cardstock.  
  1. Using the arched trees die, cut kraft paper and adhered it to the back of the brown cardstock with the arch cut out.

  1. I lined the back of the tree/arch piece with Scrapbook Adhesive Crafty Foam Tape.
  1. There is a small hill die in the set which I used to cut kraft cardstock and added it to the bottom of the trees.  
  1. I adhered this piece to the blue cardstock piece.
  1. Then, I adhered these two pieces to the card base.

  1. Now came the really fun stuff!  Using the new Sizzix Quirky Animals die set, I die cut the adorable animals, leaves and flowers from various color cardstock and assembled them.  The flowers are cut from white cardstock and Copic colored.  I blended some pink ink onto the bunny’s belly, cheek and tips of his ears.

  1. I then arranged the leaves, flowers and animals as shown to fully create the woodsy forest scene!

  1. To finish, I used a sentiment from Honey Bee Pickup Lines stamp set which I gold embossed on brown cardstock, cut out with the Honey Bee Pickup Lines dies and adhered to the left, bottom of the card.
