Stretching Your Dies (Part 2)

If you haven't seen the post I made yesterday regarding using your dies in ways other than intended, click HERE. When I started playing around with this idea, I realized there were so many other ways to use the tree dies from the Winter Woods Bundle. This was the first card I made. 

Just like yesterday's card, I cut the background tree from watercolor paper and used Moss Green Brusho on it. The die I used for that tree is circled below. 

For the Old Olive tree layered on top of the Brusho tree, I used the die circled below. 

As you can see from the photos of the dies, they are approximately the same height. I didn't alter the Brusho tree for this card, but I did alter the Old Olive tree by just snipping off the bottom with a pair of scissors to make the tree shorter. The little red bird is from the Best Birds Bundle. I love the little pop of Real Red on this card. 

I used Brusho on watercolor paper again for the tree in the front. However, I shortened it by using the die to trim the base of the tree off to make it shorter. This is similar to what I did yesterday, only I cut yesterday's tree in three pieces. I finished it off with another little red bird and a red rhinestone.

 You can make this too!
