OWH Tree Fold Tutorial


It was only yesterday that I said I was Holiday carded out. What does Operation Write Home do? They pull me back in with a Tree Fold Tutorial.

I don’t have any double sided paper so I picked two complementary patterns, glued them together and then cut out my circle. The fun thing is that each circle you cut makes two trees. I made two nearly identical cards so that each pattern could be the primary one.

I used Wausau flecked cardstock for the base and sentiment. DCWV Christmas pack papers for the tree, Sizzix Sparkle 2 thincut for the star, EK tree border punch. Sentiment from computer in Alleycat ICG.

Red and green holiday cards – take 2


I’m attempting to participate in the Operation Write Home No Place like Home Card Drive. To do this, I have to submit a box of cards that are half holiday half general theme. I have plenty of the latter but not so many of the former. I’m working off the Midweek Throwdown Challenge – Red and Green idea. The sentiment so makes me think of Just Judy from Love Actually – “All I want for Christmas is you.”

Here are the cards I made last night –

White cardstock bases, printed paper from a DCWV Christmas pack, corner punch by Fiskars, embroidery floss, Wausau Fleck cardstock for the sentiment, texture fades folder from Sizzix and buttons from my ginormous button stash.
