Christmas Tree
Hi guys!! This is a cute and simple Christmas card to make. I know it is a bit late but you can still make it for next year. Oh and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I got this idea from a Splitcoaststampers tutorial.

Materials
Cardboard: SU Garden Green, Summer Sun
Accessories: White gel pen, SU watercolour crayons, star/snowflake punch
Method
1. Get half of an A5 piece of paper (that is the size that I used but you can make it bigger or smaller. It works either way.) and measure the length of it at the top and figure out what half of it is and make a small mark.Then draw a line from that mark to each corner and cut the tree out.
2. Now time for decorating. Make dots all over the cardboard with your white gel pen. Make sure there aren't any big gaps or anything. Then go over them with the crayons. Use quite a few colours, not just one. The colours I used were SU more mustard, Cajun craze, Cherry cobbler, Garden green, Elegant eggplant and Not quite navy.
3. Draw little dots (with your white gel pen again) in lines going down the tree.
4. Last but not least, punch out the star/snowflake and stick it on top. Stick a back on it and voila!!
Hope you like it,
Caity
