Folded Christmas Tree Card by Bridget Louw

Hi! Couture Creations Designer Bridget Louw here today. I am so excited to show you this super easy Christmas card to make using an assortment of gorgeous Couture Creations products.

The card measurements are:
Cream Cardstock Embossed Panel:  6 ½ inches x 4 7/8 inches
Red Patterned Paper: 6 3/4 inches x 5 inches
Card Base: 10 ¼ inches x 6 7/8 inches, scored at 5 1/8 inches

Using the Joyful Wishes Embossing Folder, emboss the cream cardstock panel. Attach it to the red piece of patterned paper using Double-Sided Tape.

To make the Christmas Tree, using the Square Nesting Dies. Cut 4 squares, with the 4 largest square dies, using green patterned paper of your choice.

Fold the paper as per the diagram below. When you have folded all four squares push the point into the bottom of the pieces in ascending order. Cut a small piece of paper to simulate the tree trunk.

Stick your tree and trunk down onto the embossed layer.

Cut out a stamped sentiment with the small die from the Fleur de Frame Die Set and attach it on the card using Foam Mounting Tape.

Tie a piece of ribbon into a bow and adhere it to the top of the tree.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my card and will try making it with the amazing product range from Couture Creations!
