Adhesive tips: You can add some Multi-purpose adhesive to the scrap piece of Always Artichoke towards the bottom of the piece BEFORE running it through the Big Shot.

Use SNAIL or something similar to adhere the paper layers together.

The greeting banner is popped up using Dimensionals and the deer is popped up using the new Mini Dimensionals.

Adhere the wood paper to the card front (paper to paper adhesive).

Stamp the deer using Soft Suede ink onto Crumb Cake paper.

Using the Big Shot cut the trees from Always Artichoke and the stamped deer.

Punch the Chocolate Chip paper using the 2 1/4" Circle punch and the Gold Foil paper using the Starburst punch.

Stamp "Happy Birthday" on the Crumb Cake piece using Soft Suede ink. Trim the ends of the paper strip using the Banner Triple punch.

Layer the Gold Foil starburst on the Chocolate Chip circle. Then adhere the layered "circles" to the right side of the wood paper front.

(Optional step) Remove the protective layer from the Multi-purpose adhesive on the back of the trees and add to layered "circles".
