Hi everyone!  Today I want to share a super cool technique today that uses coffee filters.  I used coffee filters for my tree and had a blast trying to make the leaves look like they had some depth and layers to them.  First I used Shade of Thanks, a sweet little die from Taylored Expressions, and die cut the tree out of two coffee filters.  I used the cone shaped coffee filters and then used Distress Ink to dab onto a craft mat.  I misted the ink and let the die cuts soak up the ink…and used a heat gun to dry and shape my leaves.  I then die cut the tree one more time with kraft card stock to adhere the coffee filter tree to.  A few passes with the Grass Border and Cloud Duo dies and my card was complete.
