Christmas Card Two



Arrow From AED Christmas Celebrations Xmas Tree paper cut three trees
Arrow From the same paper cut two border strips the length of your card.
Arrow Adhere the border strips along the top and bottom of your card leaving a small border of card
Arrow Mount the three trees on foam mount in the middle of the border strips, slightly overlapping the trees and positioning them so they make a diagonal line across the card
Arrow Add gold metallic border stickers to the outside edges of the border strips

Thanks for that Lorraine, as I am not a big fan of Christmas, I really need help finding inspiration for Chrissy items cards etc. This will be a great start to getting them done and out of the way for me.Thanks Laughing
