Christmas Cards for 2014 – Christmas Tree Design

Each of these white or red card hand cut card blanks measure 5ins x 5ins and use either a linen effect or plain textured cardstock.
Layered Christmas Tree Card
The toppers are made using the  Christmas Tree design from a pack of red foil gift tags (below), with the backs cut off and papers from the 6” x 6” Christmas paper pack from Wilkinsons Christmas 2013 range which I am praying they repeat with something similar this year.
I’ve also added red and clear flat back gems on the tree and scalloped edges of the Spellbinder die cut square, plus a touch of faux stitching around some of the edges.
Layered Christmas Tree Card 2
There’s a lot of mat and layering going on, but I have been mindful, no matter how tempting, not to use any foam pads for extra dimension because if posted they may not fit through the post office gauge, and so cost extra to postLayered Christmas Tree Card 3

These are very merry cards! That little tree is so sweet. They will bring a lot of Christmas cheer to whomever receives them.

Hi Helen. Lovely card. Hopefully Wilkos will be putting the Christmas goodies out soon so that we can see if they have got more like this as I love it too. I still can't believe how much I have changed since card making. I used to hate the shops putting out Christmas stuff early. Now I can't wait! : )Take care.
