These 3-D trees are SOO easy to make and very fun too. I followed this tutorial over at Pixie Shire, many thanks to that link from Norma J!!
I used SU!'s holiday designer paper and cut mine 2.5" for the largest, and every 1/2" smaller for the next 3 squares. The blue background paper is also from the same holiday pack and I ran that piece through the Cuttlebug with the snowflakes folder. The penguin is from SU!'s "Polar Pals" set and the little ornaments are from a Tag punch set.
These are so fun. Go check out the tute and leave your post addy on Pixie Shire's blog!! :)
I added dazzling diamonds and a little santa hat --adds a lot to the card.
I was asked if the tree makes this card heavy? Well, it's no heavier than a regular 2-3 layer card, maybe I used designer paper which is lighter-weight than cardstock? I'm sure that it won't take xtra postage. (I use to be a mail clerk). Thanks for all the great comments, now GET TO FOLDING and leave me a link--I'd love to see them, and so would Juliann (the creator!!) :o)
