Simple Scallop Christmas Tree Card

Supplies you'll need:

1 sheet Astrobrights Celestial Blue cardstock

1 sheet Esse Texture Verde cardstock

1 sheet white cardstock

scrap of Green Grocer cardstock or any kraft-colored cardstock

Colorbax Frost White Pigment ink pad

Kaisercraft round red rhinestones

Kaisercraft blue flower rihinestones

scissors

Fiskars cloud edging scissors

Aleene's tacky glue

Cut two 1/2" x 8 1/2" strips from the green cardstock. Scallop the whole length of both pieces with the scissors.

Cut the strips apart into 6 separate pieces for each layer of branches. Snip the ends of the pieces at an angle as in the photo for a more "branchy" look. The bottom layer will be 6 scallops long, then 5 for the next, then 4, 3, 2, etc. until there's just one tiny scallop for the top layer.

Rub just the scalloped edge of each branch section against the white ink pad surface to give it a "snowy" look. Let them dry completely.

Cut a 1/2" square from the brown bag paper. This will be the tree trunk.

Cut 5" x 1 3/8" piece from the white cardstock. Scallop the long edge. This will be the snow.

Trim the blue cardstock to 7" x 10" and score down the middle so the card will fold to 5"x7". The Score-It-All board sold at Paper Zone makes this part very easy.

Glue everything in place with the tacky glue onto the front of the card referring to the photo for guidance on the finished result. Attach a flower rhinestone for the "star" on top of the tree and round red rhinestones for the "ornaments" on the tree branches.

Happy Card-making!
