12 Days of Christmas Trees – Day 2

Each day for 12 days, I will be showing card variations made with Karen Burniston’s Christmas Tree Pop-up die.  I recommend watching her assembly video before attempting to cut and assemble the pop-up tree.

For all of these cards I started with an A7 size card base (10 x 6 ½ inches), but because my die cutting machine can only accommodate 6-inch-wide pieces of paper, I had to trim the cards down to 10 x 6 inches.

Day 2 – Home for the Holidays – Village

Echo Park Home for the Holidays Collection Kit by Alisha Gordon made this card quick and easy as well as professional looking. I used the Snowflake paper (HFH73013) for the tree and Festive Chevron (HFH73002) for the card base. A large card sentiment topper for the front and stickers for additional decoration inside and out made it a super-fast card to create.

This a top fold card because of the orientation of the sentiment topper.  The tree inside had two layers cut for the taller two center tree pieces so that all sides of the tree have the green side of the paper while smaller side trees are single layer because the white side of the paper is not visible. The tree base was cut from a scrap piece of black cardstock The holes created by the tree mechanism cutting into the card base were pieced from the inside of the card to match the outside pattern. A stick covers the front hole.
