Handmade Christmas Cards

Here is how I made my Christmas card this year.  I began by drawing a triangle on the back of a piece of scrapbooking paper. Then I measured how far apart I wanted the branches to be, and drew the outline of the tree.   

Next I cut out the tree with a sharp pair of scissors.  

Then I found a piece of handmade paper, and cut that down to card size.  I applied glue to my christmas tree, and then applied it to the front of my card.  To finish it off I wrote 'Merry Christmas' in green Sharpie.  

I enjoy the way these turned out.  I like Christmas Tree art for the holidays.  Happy DIYing, chris!
