Autumn layout

Hello, Alicia here today with a scrapbook layout.  I recently purchased some flocking at a crafty sale and knew immediately I wanted to use it on the tree and leaves from the Karen Burniston Tree Pop Up die set.  I also wanted to use it in a different way than the pop up card.  I decided on a layout with a pop up tree. 

I used the Tutti Designs Nesting Banner dies set
to create a bold title.  I added texture by turning up the corners with a pencil.  I also inked all the edges for a distressed look.

I cut dozens of leaves then covered them with my own autumn flocking mix using gold, orange and red.  I added them to the tree, the banner, and the "ground" beneath the tree.

I created a double layered strip with paper matching the tree trunk.  I trimmed it to the shape of the tree.  I scored and designed a fold gluing the back of the strip to the back of the page.  I layered pop dots to support the upper portion of the tree.
