Christmas Trees and Buttons!

Today’s post is a couple of simple cards that were inspired and semi-cased from some cards that I saw on Nichole Heady’s Blog, Capture the Moment.

To make the Christmas trees, I used the Pennant Die and the Big Shot.

Same die, different trees! Here’s how:

1. Decide how tall you want the tree to be. Add 1/8”. This is your height measurement.

2. Determine how wide you want the base of the tree to be. Add 1/8”. This is your width measurement. 006

Note: The larger the height measurement and the smaller the width measurement the narrower the tree.

3. Cut a piece of card stock to the height and width you determined. Fold this piece in half width-wise.009

4. Lay this piece on the die so that the folded edge is positioned like the one in the picture on the small pennant.

The folded side is matched up to the “corner” of the pennant where the fold should be but the rest of the piece should be parallel to the edge. Below is a picture of the orientation of the die .pennant die
