Twelve Days of Christmas: Project #9 Christmas Tree Card

Today we celebrate the 9th day of Christmas with this Christmas Tree Card project. 

Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree..... I've been humming this song ever since I made this card.

I've got all the fixings ready for this project. I cut everything, again, from my Art Philophsopy Cricut Cartridge from CTMH.

The card is cut at 5.5" - I used parchment card stock, I like the vintage look of it, but you can also use light tan colored card stock. You'll want to use the "card" setting on your cartridge

The decorative layer is cut at 4"  I used a designer green from a large 180 DCWV 12" x 12" pack.

The oval layer is cut at 3.5" it's a sienna colored card stock from DCWV textured card stock 12 x 12 pack.

You'll need a piece of Navy ribbon and a brad (either silver or bronze works best.)


Attach your decorative layer on to a solid piece of 4" x 5.5 card stock. (I used olive and a brighter green for the decorative layer to make it "pop"). Then attack to the back front of card so the decorative side shows through the cut outs. 

Next, place your ribbon about 1/4" from the bottom of the card.

Take a piece of hemp or ivory embordery thread and tie around the left end of the oval cut out.

Attach Oval cut out around the trees, positing it best to the center.

Insert Brad about 1/2 inch from the end off the right side of the ribbon band.
Tie a piece of tread around the ribbon by the brad.

Take a 3/4" x 3" piece of white card stock and stamp with a warm greeting. Cut the end to make it appear like a banner and attach to card over the ribbon and oval cut out.

A warm and festive card for the season!
