Another folded Christmas tree card! I love these Christmas trees. They are so easy to make and add so much texture to a design. Watch the folded tree tutorial to see how to make these with a Circle punch or Scallop circle die.
This card is ALL about shimmer! I started with a Whisper White cardstock base and my shimmer sprays. I ripped a piece of paper to mask the top half of the card base and sprayed the Silver shimmer spray. I moved the paper a couple of times and sprayed again. When you use these sprays make sure you know which way the nozzle is pointing before you spray or you could end up with a glitter silver arm like I did!!!
I lightly sprayed the top right for some sun rays, then masked the corner with a circle and sprayed again to achieve a circular sun look. Even the folded Christmas tree and trunk was sprayed with the Vanilla shimmer spray.
This Ruffle tree card is really a lot easier to do than it appears. I started with a Whisper White pennant cut from the Perfect Pennant Bigz Die with the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine. Then I cut 12” strips of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper and punched the strips with the Scallop Edge Border Punch.
I started adhering the strips to the bottom of the tree with the first scallop ruffle hanging over the edge. I roughly clipped the strip and layered the next ruffle, alternating between the different patterns. When the entire pennant was covered I turned it over and using the pennant as a guide, I used the Paper Snips to trim the edges creating the tree shape.
I popped the tree up on dimensionals and added a trunk with a bit of the same paper. The star was punched from Silver Glimmer Paper, but I thought the silver didn’t really match as well as I’d like so I colored the star with a So Saffron marker to add a little antiquing which matched the Very Vanilla color scheme better. I find that using Multipurpose Liquid Glue is very effective in securing the Glimmer Paper.
A little touch of Crochet Trim and Vintage Trinket brad finishes the design.
Once again this Top Note Gift Card Holder was inspired by a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator blog. A perk I love about being a SU demo. This card looks involved but it is actually quite easy to make. View the video tutorial below and I’ll walk you through the quick steps to creating this ‘scentsational’ card.
Cut your cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″ and score at 4-1/2, 5-1/2 & 6-1/2, then follow the directions in the video to run your scored cardstock through the Big Shot Die-cutting Machine with the Top Note Bigz Die and create the pop up gift card holder shown above.
To decorate the front of the card, I die-cut a piece of the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper to fit on the front and cover the left edge of the gift card holder. I punched a large circle of Gumball Green cardstock and layered the fun, steaming mug from the Scentsational Season Stamp Set with the matching Holiday Framelit dies.
The Merry Christmas sentiment from Wacky Wishes Hostess stamp set was stamped in Cherry Cobbler, and it punched out perfectly with the Extra-Wide Oval punch.
A little dazzling details glitter and some rhinestones add extra glitz to the Soft Suede mug. And another large circle in Whisper White in the interior gives you a place to write a personal message.

This is the first Top Note elf shoes Christmas card I made, but I decided I wanted the shoes beefier and the card a little brighter so I made the elf shoe Christmas card I showed earlier this week. This card is made the same way as the one in the video tutorial. On this card I used a Crumb Cake cardstock base and the Mixed Medley hostess stamp set.
