17 Days of CTMH Christmas Cards - Day 6: Heartfelt Christmas Tree

Advent Card to College Day 6

(Sorry about the picture -- I had already mailed off the card before I realize there was glare on the right side there.)

Supplies & Cutting Directions
BASE 5" x 7" - CTMH New England Ivy (I used older CTMH paper that was textured and each side a different shade of the same color.  It matches with the New England Ivy on one side, but the other side is a much lighter color of green -- I miss those papers, I've been saving them in my stash for a special occasion -- what's more special than my daughter! :) )  You will have to cut a lighter shade of green to 2" x 7"
Barn Red CS - 2.25" x 4"
Colonial White CS - 2.25" x 4"
CTMH  Stamp Set: Heartfelt Christmas (C1378 from Fall 2009)
CTMH Exclusive Inks: New England Ivy & Vanilla Cream
CTMH Exclusive Inks Marker: Watermelon
Zig-Zag Corner trimmer by EK Success
CTMH Glitz (Stardust) Liquid Glitter
6 eyelets
Paper trimmer with scoring blade or some type of scoring system
Pop Dots -- the extra tall version

Crop-a-dile or some way to set your eyelets.

Assembly Directions
1. Stamp sentiment in lower left corner of card base with the Vanilla Cream.
2. Using your scoring blade or bone folder, score every 1/4" on the 2" x 7" piece (see picture for direction of score marks) - sponge lightly with the New England Ivy across the ridges created from scoring.  Attach to card base with the 6 eyelets and your Crop-a-dile (or eyelet setter).
3. Stamp tree using New England Ivy on both the Barn Red and the Colonial White pieces.  Cut out the tree from the Colonial White piece (cut off the dots, only leave the tree).  Color in hearts.
4. Use corner rounder on the Barn Red piece, then attach to slightly off center towards right on card base.
5. Now apply Glitz to color in the dots on the Barn Red Piece.
6. Put tall pop dots on cut out tree and attach direction over the barn red piece, then apply Glitz to all the dots on the tree as well.
