Here’s how to get your hands on these goodies:
Follow Stacey’s steps to deck the perfect Christmas tree card
Fold a piece of white card in half to create a base card of 15x15cm. Cut a piece of large spotted green paper to the same size and glue to the front. Cut a piece of the Rye coloured corrugate card 13.5×13.5cm and glue to the centre of the card.
Cut a strip of white and green cross hatch paper 13.5x2cm and cut using the scallop die. Glue this onto the card 1cm from the bottom of the corrugated card. Cut a strip of red spotty paper 13.5x2cm and glue to the card along the top of the scallop edge. Add three green pearls to the right hand side.
Next die cut the parts of the tree from a thick card and then from the green, white and brown papers. Glue the corresponding paper parts onto the cardboard parts to add depth. Attach the tree parts to the card using adhesive foam pads. Glue the baubles onto the tree with PVA.
Finally, die cut the phrase from red card and glue onto the right hand side of the card. Die cut the letter D from spotty paper and glue on top. Die cut the swirls from the white patterned paper and glue below the phrase.
