Handmade Christmas Card a Day – Day 3

Day 3 of our Handmade Christmas Card a Day feature is here.  You can see the designs for Day 1 here and Day 2 here

Today’s card is from ScrapScene and is a fun card to make that even the kids can help out with.  I like to use papers that aren’t necessarily made for the Christmas season, but are the right colours – it just makes it all the more fun!

Materials

Patterned paper – 2 types – one green and one red

Pompoms – mini sized and larger sized

Wood veneer strip – available from a hardware supply store

Glue

Bone folder

Black marker

Instructions

1. Cut card to size and using a bone folder, fold in half

2. Cut out 3 triangular shapes from the second patterned paper.  Varying sizes.

3. Cut 3 small rectangles from the wood veneer strips. 

4. Glue triangle ‘trees’ all in a row on the front of the card.

5. Glue pompoms to trees, using a large one for the top of the tree.

6. Use black marker to outline card along edge.

You are finished!  Stop by tomorrow for Day 4′s design!

    This is a great idea for a Christmas card. It’s a bit different but it looks like it would be quick and easy to make. I was a bit worried at first that it had stitching around the edges. And the sewing machine and I don’t have a very good relationship.But once I read that it was marking pen, my heart was won.

    I’m giving this a thumbs up on StumbleUpon to help share with other needy cardmakers.
