This card was great fun to make although my class ladies didn’t think so. Once again, they moaned about all the cutting. So, I graciously helped those who wanted help cutting as I do love to cut. Don’t ask me why I just do. I find it relaxing because, you don’t really need to think about it. And you can talk while doing it and that’s a good thing.
Here’s how to make this card:
1. First, simply draw a Christmas tree on a scrap piece of cardboard, cut it out and use it to trace on Stampin’ Up!’s Holly Jolly Designer Series Paper.
2. Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and score it at 4-1/4″.
3. Cut a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. Punch each corner with the Ticket Corner Punch.
4. Using whatever images from the Bingo Bits Stamp Set you want, stamp images on a scrap of Very Vanilla and cut them out. I stamped the images shown in Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Old Olive and Soft Suede Ink. Don’t forget the presents for under the tree!
5. For the round ornaments I punch out this piece of Jolly Holly Designer Series Paper with the 1/2″ Circle Punch.
6. Layer the Very Vanilla on the Cherry Cobbler.
7. Adhere the tree with Dimensionals.
8. Adhere the ornaments with Glue Dots.
9. Stick a Basic Rhinestone in each corner.
10. Top off your tree with a pretty little bow made from Cherry Cobbler 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.
As an Added treat enjoy this video with Nat King Cole singing, “O Tannenbaum.”
