How to make a Christmas tree-shaped card
You Will Need
- Patterned paper
- White card
- Die-cutting machine
- Embossing powder
- Heat tool
- adhesive gems
Using the free template as a guide, cut a tree from white card. Score as directed and cut the two lines in the centre of the fold line to form the star shape.
Stick the tree card to the back of a sheet of green design paper. Trim around the edge and cut the top of the star again with a craft knife. Fold the card base in half and crease the fold.
Cut the tree base from brown paper and stamp the sentiment onto it. Sprinkle with white embossing powder and set with a heat tool. Attach to the bottom of the tree.
