Christmas Trees Card

Taking a break from blogging is dangerous. It’s always hard for me to get started back up again. Luckily, today I have something fun to share with you.

Yesterday my mom came over and we made these (paper) card together for her card club that she is in. They were, of course, inspired by my wintery pillow.

We were loving the idea to make the pillow design into a card until we had to paste all the itty bitty tree trunks on all 75 of the itty bitty trees. We made 18 cards total and by the end we were cursing the whole idea and started making only 2 tree cards. Woo. If you plan on doing these with paper… I recommend only 2 or 3 trees per card. He He.

While trying to get a decent photo of the cards before my mom whisked them away for her lucky club members, Isaac jumped in my pictures… literally. This kid has been bouncing around my house like crazy. He can’t seem to stay OFF his head. I remember my little brother going through a stage like this so I guess it will end someday. For now, I’m enrolling the little tike into a gymnastics class to see if the bouncing, spinning, flipping and headstands will turn into anything productive.

So I thought I would make all of your lives easier and provide you will a digital version of our Christmas trees card. If you like it click here to download and don’t forget to leave me a comment.



These cards are 5x7s but remember you could transform them to whatever size you may need or drag them onto another canvas.

I, personally, am a fan of the one with a photo.

Happy Christmas card making.

    so cute! And Isaac makes them even cuter. I’m afraid the flipping, jumping, etc. probably won’t stop anytime soon. Ty, at 5, continues to drives us crazy with his inability to STOP. Merry Christmas!!!

    Good luck keeping Isaac off his head. Even with gymnastics, I can’t keep Kailey off her head. Some kids were just born to tumble I guess!!
