How to make a pink pompom Christmas tree card
Step 1: Print the craft sheet
Print the craft sheet onto glossy photo paper.
I use Crafty Bob Glossy Paper which is a special type of paper designed for greetings cards and crafts.
I like to use this paper because the printer ink dries instantly and is smudge-proof straight after printing, so you can use the printed sheet straight away.
If you aren’t a fan of the glossy shiny look to your printouts then the paper is available in matte too.
Step 2: Cut out the card front
Cut out the card front using a paper trimmer or a craft knife and metal ruler (don’t forget a cutting mat to protect your work surface!).
I left a bit of extra white after the pink border to help separate the design from the black card that I’m going to mount it on in the next step.
Step 3: Layer onto black card
Cut a piece of black card so that it is slightly smaller than 5×7 inches but slightly larger than the topper you have just cut out.
Stick the tree topper onto the black card using double-sided tape.
Step 4: Attach to card blank
Stick the black card to your 5×7 inch card blank using double-sided tape.
Step 5: Add the pompoms and gemstones
Here is the fun bit!
Add pompoms and gemstones to the black circles on the Christmas tree design.
You don’t need to add one to every black circle – I left a few of the smaller ones empty.
Stick a star topper on top or you could even cover the top star in glitter if you don’t have any star-shaped toppers.
Step 6: Finish with silver peel-offs
Finish your card front with some simple silver border peel-offs on the black card for some extra Christmas sparkle.
