Day 3 Christmas Cards - Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree Card

By Corrina

Materials Used:

Papers: Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Morning, Little Yellow Bicycle Tis the Season Stripe/Starry Night and Little Yellow Bicycle Christmas Delight Peppermint Mix/ Frosty Mint Fa La La, A5 Kraft Card folded (Bazzill Kraft is perfect for this)

Embellishments: Red Acrylic Rhinestone chain

Product: PVA glue, Crystallina Kindyglitz, 3-D foam tape.

1. Cut out the Christmas tree from the Christmas Morning paper (being careful to retain the cute little presents for a future project.) – A little note here: the star will fall off so don’t worry, you can glue it back on later.

2. Cover the front of the card with a piece of the Frosty Mint Fa La La paper. Look closely at the Starry Night paper and you will see some wiggly lines in the pattern. Carefully cut a piece along these lines and adhere just below halfway down the card. (For this I had a star on the line so I cut an extra star out to layer it 3-D style)

3. Using PVA glue stick the rhinestone chain along the wiggly edge of the Starry Night paper. This can be a bit fiddley so wait a few minutes until the glue thickens and starts to go tacky.

4. Cut single rhinestones of the chain (I find using a sharp scalpel works best) and glue onto the centre of the circle pattern on the Christmas tree. (Footnote by Tracy - I cut my chain with scissors then burn the ends)

When dry, mount onto the centre of the card using 3-D foam mounting tape.

Only 3 days left to get 12% off Basic Grey Jovial and LYB Christmas Delight Pattern Papers (excluding die cuts & stickers)
