A Vintage Christmas: Crochet Trim & Buttons

Last night at Stamp Club we created a Vintage Christmas Card using a great Christmas Tree Template idea.

The Christmas tree is created from a 1/2 circle of Designer Series Paper (Deck the Halls here).  The circle I used is 5 1/4″ (check out my Circle Cutter Video Tutorial for help cutting).  Thanks to Linda Yearsley from our LovenStampfuls Demonstrator Group for her Christmas card using this tree technique!  And thanks to Connie Babbert for putting the directions in writing.

½ Circle Christmas Tree Directions

This little tree can be made from any size circle.  For a ¼ sheet card front, the circle should be about 5 ¼”

Begin by cutting your circle in half.  Then fold at an angle to form the base of the tree, along about 2/3 of the side of the circle.  Fold back and forth (W fold, M fold, W fold, etc.) to form the tree layers.

One more tip… don’t stress if your tree looks a little bit different.  You can make them skinnier or wider, or have only 4 folds or 6 folds — play around and see what  you like best.

  • Top Note Big Shot Die & Petals-A-Plenty Embossing Folder

  1. I just found your blog on ‘Google.’ I was looking at different card folds and came across your gorgeous Christmas Tree fold. I love the colours you have used and the way you have embellished the card. Well done and thanks so much for sharing! I have added your blog to my ‘favourites’ list:-)
