  1. Cut a piece of grey board large enough to cover the die and attach a piece of rough hessian fabric to one side using a suitable strong adhesive and set aside to dry.
  2. Place the board hessian side down onto the die and cut both pieces of the tree.
  3. Apply black gesso to the face of both pieces making sure you get deep into the hessian texture.
  4. Choose two contrasting green acrylics, one dark and one light and add a little of each to a craft mat.
  5. Apply the greens to the die-cuts using a dry brush technique allowing the black to show through between the gaps in the texture.
  6. Mount both die-cuts together and wrap with natural twine before adding the sentiment charm.
  7. Create the sentiment at the foot of the base card using a stamp or your PC and printer before mounting the assembled tree in place.
