The 11th Card

To start this you need some green cardstock to make the card - cut it to 28 x 15cm and fold in half. Take a 14cm strip of green patterned paper (I've used some MME from the Stomp range here) and punch down one width with Martha Stewart Half Spiral punch. Trim this whole piece then to 12cm across. Punch out a half circle on the right hand side and draw with a white pen round the edge.

Stick this onto the front of the card blank.

Stamp the Tapestry Tree onto some cream cardstock with distress ink.

Trim to 7.5 x 12cm and edge with black pen. Using icicle stickles highlight parts of the tree. When dry stick onto the top and add some gemstones.


Computer generate your greeting onto pale green cardstock and punch out with a scalloped circle punch.


Attach this as shown, leaving the right hand side to stick out over the edge. Use a gold pen to finish off with a line round the edge and dots on the scalloped greeting.
