Christmas Tree Card

Christmas Tree Card by Bridget Louw

Hi Bridget here and I am so excited to show you this super easy Christmas card to make using an assortment of gorgeous Couture Creations products.

The card measurements are:
Cream Cardstock Embossed panel  6 ½” x 4 7/8”
Red Layer 6 3/4”x 5”
Base piece measures 10 ¼” x 6 7/8” scored at 5 1/8”

Using the Wrapped in Joy Premium Embossing Folder Collection Joyful Wishes, emboss the cream panel. Attach it to the red piece using double sided tape.

To make the Christmas Tree, using C0723042 Nesting Dies: Square cut out the largest 4 squares using green paper of your choice.

Fold the paper as per the diagram below. When you have folded all four squares push the point into the bottom of the pieces in ascending order. Cut a small piece of paper to simulate the tree trunk.

Stick your tree and trunk down onto the embossed layer.
Cut out the small die from the C0723050 Fleur de Frame Die Set and stamp on a sentiment of your choice. Layer it on the card using C0721963 Foam mounting Tape.

Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow and stick it at the top of the tree.
