Another Folded Tree

I can't believe the popularity of these Folded Trees!  Thank you to all who left such nice comments on my card from two weeks ago you can see HERE.  I also have the FREE TEMPLATE for the larger one I did last year HERE.  Since each circle makes two trees, I had a few of them on my desk left over from a couple weeks ago (messy desk!).  When I saw SCS sketch challenge today,  it looked like a frame to me, so I had the idea to "frame" one of my folded Christmas trees!



This card came together pretty easily!  The base is Real Red cardstock.  I ran the Wild Wasabi layer thru the Big Shot with the Snow Burst Impressions Folder and layered it on Early Espresso.  I cut a stripe of the glittery red dots in Stampin' Up!'s Holly Berry Designer Paper.  I hand cut the embossed Rectangle Frame Folder from Early Espresso cardstock and layered the rectangle of Real Red inside.  I added one of the Folded Christmas Trees and topped it with the small Silver Glimmer Star from the Stars Die.  I also added a little tree trunk of Early Espresso.  The Rectangle Frame is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I stamped the word Merry from Stampin' Up!'s Pennant Parade stamp set, then punched with the Small Oval Punch.  It is popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, too.


It came together really quickly because I already had the Folded Tree done.  I just took my colors from the Designer Paper.  Enjoy!

I saw a page layout in scrapbooks etc magazine with a folded tree someone found on your blog.  I came right to your blog to get the template.  This is so cute, and doesn't look too difficult.  Thanks for the post! I cannot wait to make one.

Hi Connie – this is AMAZING and will be the centerpiece of my holiday cards this year – do you recall what size you cut the circle for this smaller tree vs. the one on your instruction sheet?
