Christmas Joy, Christmas Tree

christmas-joy-christmas-tree-headerI love how simple this card is and so relaxing to make with just a touch of sewing! Any color Baker’s Twine can be used and the tree can be decorated anyway you want. So sit back, paper pierce some sewing holes and stitch away!

The card base is Real Red card stock cut at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″. The Whisper White layer is 5″ x 3-3/4″.

Along the bottom of the Whisper White make evenly spaced holes with a Paper Piercer and Piercing Mat. Do thesse about a 1/2″ form the edge. In the middle of the card, Paper Pierce a hole on the top of the card about an 1″ from the top.

Thread a fairly fat metal sewing needle and simply go up and through one of the bottom holes into the top hole. Repeat until you’ve created your Baker’s Twine Christmas Tree.

Stamp the “Christmas Joy” message from the Stitched with Cheer stamp set in Real Red ink. Using the Big Shot and the Bunch Of Banners Framelits, cut out the banner.

Adhere the layer onto the Real Red card base and have fun decorating your tree with Sequin Stars and paper punched circles. On the top add a pretty gem or star. What a great texture card!

Have fun making this unique card.
