How To Create A Handmade Colored Christmas Tree Card

Hey there!  I am glad you are joining me for the fifth card I have made using the Celebrate Christmas Scrapbooking kit from Echo Park.  This has been such a great kit for cards so far.  I am wondering how many cards I can get out of one kit.  I don’t send tons of cards so I bet I can make enough for everyone on my list.  Today I am using colored pencils to create a handmade colored Christmas tree card!

Step 1:

Cut a 5.25 x 4 piece of the black and white patterned paper as your background layer.  I wanted to have the Christmas tree centered in the middle so I cut it accordingly.

Step 2:

Color the text in the tree on the background paper with red and green colored pencils.  Start with the red and color every other line of text.

Switch to the green and color the other words…Love and Believe and the star at the top.  Ink the edges with the black ink.

Step 3:

Cut at 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock down the center lengthwise at 4.25″ to create a vertical card with the fold at the top.  Fold in half and ink the edges.

Step 4:

Find the Happy Holidays sticker on the sticker sheet that comes with the kit.  Ink the edges and place it onto a scrap piece of white cardstock .  Trim the edges of the white cardstock around the sticker and leave a small border all of the way around.

Use mounting tape to adhere it to the front of the card.

Step 5:

Add a piece of the bakers twine around the top of the card at the fold.  See photos below.

Step 6:

Add stickles to the star at the top of the tree and to the snowflakes on the paper to add some glitter and sparkle.
