Hi everyone! This is one of my favorite Christmas cards I made this holiday season. Hope you can see the trees-they are dimensional and they even get flat so that you can easily put it in an envelope.
To make the dimensional tree, I stamped one of the pennant images three times on Old Olive card stock in Old Olive and then punched them out with the Pennant Builder Punch. I folded each piece in half and glue them together in the back using the Tombow Liquid Glue. The finished tree is then adhered to the embossed frame piece with Dimensionals. I tied a small bow using the Stampin' Up! 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and adhered it to the tree with Mini Glue Dots.
This is a fun Christmas card to make. In fact, my youngest son really enjoyed making it for his kindergarten teacher. Along with this card he gave her a 2012 Planner which I decorated with some designer series paper and personalized it with her name. I hope she liked it.
Here is the one I made for me. I can't live without one of these to help me organized with my own workshop schedules plus busy family activities. I haven't converted myself to a digital one yet! I still like this way and even write things down in pencil!!!!
