Anywho, here is the card I have made. Last weekend, when I attended the scrapbook convention in Ontario, CA, I purchased a book from Pine Cone Press called "Happy Holidays Book" where it give you great ideas on cards, gift boxes, and more. So I wanted to try out a card that they showcased in their book that I really liked making. It is a Joy Card.
Here are some steps on how to make this card:
First: Cut 4 inch lengths of 8-9 different ribbon. (you can cut the length of ribbon to your desired choice)
Second: In the book, it states to use Mod Podge to adhere the ribbon onto the piece of white cardstock. But for some reason, it didn't work, at least for me it didn't. So I used my ATG gun instead to adhere the ribbon which worked better.
Third: After ribbon is dry or glued down to the white card stock, cut into a Christmas tree shape.
Fourth: Glue Christmas Tree Shape on top of green card stock,then cut slightly into a larger tree shape. Tear rectangle of brown card stock to make a tree stump. I used my Brown distress Ink to ink the edges. Then adhere to the bottom of the tree.
Fifth: adhere the tree on top of the red card stock. Then, stamp your card with your choice of Christmas sentiment. My card is a 4 x 6 white card stock, followed by a red card stock measured at 3.5 x 5.5.
