Christmas Tree Cards

I found this template for a christmas tree shaped card on-line; however, it didn't download and print off correctly. So I had to go ahead,draw and cut one myself which took a bit of time. It's an odd shape when laid out flat before scoring and folding. After making the first card, I also decided to cut a layer somewhat smaller to glue the bits of paper and ribbon to that piece, then attach it to the main card layer.  This makes it easier to tuck the ends of the ribbon behind, concealing them and making a clean finish.

 It's a great card for using up those small bits of left over paper, scraps of ribbon/lace and your decorative punches!  The pink card on the left has stickles on the dots along the bottom and around the loops of the punched piece which is hard to see in the pic.

I stamped inside "Have yourself a merry little Christmas!"
