If you love fancy folds, this easy flap fold Christmas tree card is right up your alley! Let’s use the versatile Pine Tree punch – dressed up with the Tufted 3D Embossing folder – to create a spectacular design.
Here’s our design.
Classic. Homey. Pretty. And let’s not forget easy!
I haven’t used the Toile Tidings paper much so far this year so thought it was time. It’s traditional colours of Garden Green and Real Red with a Very Vanilla background make it perfect for your greetings. A bit more understated than Whisper White, it makes a softer look for your cards.
This flap fold is a variation on this cute snowman card – and one of my favourites for quick and easy cardmaking.
Flap Fold Christmas Tree Card
Open Up One Side
…and this is what you see…
Now if you wanted to get even fancier, you could put a greeting or some more trees on the inside of your Garden Green flap (hmmmm,🧐 something for next time)
Open Up the Other Flap
…and you can see how your trees will fit right inside with a clean background. HINT: I would do my writing in behind the flap!
OK let’s take a closer look at those trees…
I first ran a piece of cardstock through the Tufted 3D embossing folder with my die cutting machine. Then I positioned my Christmas tree punch so the embossed lines were running the same direction. (If you haven’t seen this embossing folder in action, this simple Christmas card shows it off well.)
Popped up on dimensionals, they get a special basic pearl where the lines intersect on the trees. HAPPY ACCIDENT! Since they are all in slightly different places, they look pretty random.
The tiny greeting is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set, in Garden Green then punched out with the Classic label punch and trimmed off the right hand side.
Over to You Stamper!
It’s amazing how a little bit of dimesion adds so much to these little trees. Just think of the possibilities with the embossing folders you have at home.
