O Tannenbaum

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.
