Countdown to Christmas 2021 #9

The 9th project in my Countdown to Christmas 2021 series is a card with no stamping. It’s also a great project for using your DSP.

I’ve used the Heartwarming Hugs DSP from the Mini Catalogue as my starting point. My cardstock colours of Pear Pizzazz and Basic White then mirror this.

Cutting the piece of DSP in half shows both sides. The join is covered with a piece of Gold Shimmer Ribbon,

Three trees are then cut out from another piece of DSP with the Pine Tree Punch.

They are assembled together to create a 3D effect. What is great about this effect is that it flattens down in the envelope for posting.

The trees sit on layered shapes cut from the Hippo & Friends Dies.

Finally, a sparkly Wonderful Gem tops the tree.

This design can be used to create other Christmas cards too.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this project. Pop back for the next in my Countdown to Christmas 2021 series.
