No Die Easy Tree Fold Card

Ann Melvin Independent Craft Addict/No Die Easy Tree Fold Card




Hi Everyone,

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I think many of us always have a last minute Christmas Card to make. Today i have one that would be perfect & i am sure they will think its so cool!  As i state in the title, this card requires no fancy dies just a pencil, Ruler & some Scissors.



I decorated the front of my tree with pretty gold star gems, of course you can use whatever you have. I suppose you could even stamp or do some heat embossing on the Tree front, the choice is yours.



As you can see from the picture above, i used some Gold glitter paper to glue behind the main Tree. Again, you can use whatever you have. This was simple to do as i just drew around the Tree shape and cut it out with scissors. Twine was used to keep the card shut.

DIMENSIONS

CARD MEASURING 11 1/4" X 5 3/4"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 1 1/2",  3 1/2",  7 1/2"  &  9 1/2"

WHITE CARD FOR YOUR STAMPING/MESSAGE MEASURING 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"

Please make sure to watch my YouTube Tutorial as this will give you step by step instructions of how to put this card together. You can find the link at the end of this blog post.

I really hope you like this card and will give one a try. Its really pretty simple to make. Another great thing is that you can fit this card into a normal envelope as it folds pretty much flat for postage. It also stand up perfectly so you can display it on your Fireplace etc.

Until next time.....

Love Ann xx
