How to Make

1.  Begin by cutting a red sheet from the Simply Creative Jingle Bells 6x6 paper pad down to fit the size of your Dovecraft Kraft 6x6 card blank. Adhere it with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape to the centre of your card.

2.  Choose a green sheet within the Jingle Bells paper pad and cut it down to 14.2cm x 14.2cm. Die cut the largest tree from the First Edition Nesting Tree die set to the centre. Add double sided tape to the back of the sheet.

3.  Cut alternating strips of Jingle Bells paper sizing them at approximately, 1cm/ 1.5cm in width.

4.  Place the strips over the tape in a diagonal pattern ensuring to mix the paper designs and that each strip over laps. Continue until the aperture is covered.

5.  Trim the excess paper around your Christmas tree design.

6.  Adhere your Christmas tree design to the centre of your 6x6 kraft card blank with Dovecraft Perma Fix tape.

7.  Stamp the ‘Happy Christmas’ sentiment from the Winter Blooms Clear Stamps collection onto a coordinating piece of Jingle Bells paper. Cut out and adhere to the centre of your tree design with 3D foam squares.

8.  Finish by adhering an adhesive pearl from the Dovecraft Winter Blooms collection, to each corner of your card.

This sweet and simple design will be fab to use for sending cards to your friends and family.

With the left over tree die cut from the tutorial, Maxine has created an alternative design by adhering it to the centre of her chosen Jingle Bells paper and decorating it with colourful pearls from the Winter Blooms collection. She has finished her festive look with a cool die cut sentiment topper.

These Christmassy makes will look pretty in any home during the holidays!
