Evergreen Border Punch Christmas card
T he Evergreen Border is a great tool for your Christmas crafting. I punched 3 types of paper to build the rows of trees.
Card Base: Cut Evening Evergreen 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Soft Succulent paper 4 X 5 1/4
Card Front: Cut Soft Succulent print paper from Tidings of Christmas paper pack 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛. Attach print paper to Soft Succulent card mat. Attach these to Evergreen card base.
Cut Evening Evergreen 3 X 4 ¼. Cut Very Vanilla 2 ⅞ X 4 ⅛.
Stamp Merry Christmas with Evening Evergreen ink centered at the top of the Very Vanilla piece.
Cut strip of Evening Evergreen Shimmer Vellum 2 X 5. Punch along one length with the Evergreen Border punch. Cut strip of Soft Succulent Shimmer Vellum 2 X 5. Punch along one length with the Evergreen Border punch. Cut strip of soft succulent print paper from Tidings of Christmas paper pack 2 X 5. Punch along one length with the Evergreen Border punch.
Attach the Evening Evergreen punched strip ¼ from the bottom of the Very Vanilla piece. Attach the Soft Succulent punched strip below the Evening Evergreen strip of trees, off set so trees are not layered exactly on top of each other. Attach the punched Soft Succulent punched strip at bottom of Very Vanilla pieces offset so print trees fall between the shimmer vellum trees.
Attach the Very Vellum piece to the Evening Evergreen piece. Attach these to the center of the card front with dimensionals. Attach silver epoxy diamond shapes to Very Vanilla piece.
That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Very Vanilla 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment or write a note before attaching this piece inside your card.
