3-D Pennant Parade Tree Card

Good morning! This week, I’m going to focus on some of the “fancier” Christmas cards you might make for the special people on your Christmas Card list. This is still an easy card to make, but the extra details make it look like you spent a long time making it. It’ll be our little secret how easy it really was!

First, let’s start with the Center-Step fold for the card base. I followed a template that Connie Babbert created. Just cut the 2 vertical lines. Then use the new Simply Scored Tool to score the horizontal lines. The only trick is creasing the folds really well so the card sits up correctly.  This style of card also qualifies for the Dolce Stamps DSAC06 challenge.

Next, I made a 3-D Christmas Tree using the Pennant Parade stamp set and the Petite Pennants punch. Stamp the Tree image 3 times and punch each image out with the scallop pennant portion of the Petite Pennants punch. Fold each tree in half and attach the trees back-to-back with the Multi-purpose liquid glue. (The liquid glues allows you time to get the scallops perfectly aligned with each other.)

The rest of the card is just decorated with strips of the Frostwood Lodge DSP, some Quilted Satin Ribbon, and a Basic Rhinestone Jewel. I added a greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch. Oh, and I did not use any Stampin’ Dimensionals on this card. The fancy fold and 3-D tree added enough depth to this card. And this way, you can still mail the card since the tree folds flat!

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions.
