Scallop Ruffle Christmas Tree Card

Pennant Ruffle Christmas Tree Card

Scallop Ruffle Christmas Tree Card

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.
