Merry Christmas Pine Bough

Another FUN card to make.  Starting with a piece of green card stock 11" x4 1/4",  fold in half lengthwise.  Then, score the front section at 1 1/2".  Fold over and tear the edge towards you to give it a 'feathered' look.   Unfold again.  Then, center your Framelit on the front of the bottom section and cut out.

Using a 5" x 3 1/2" piece of light card stock, adhere it to a piece of 5 1/4" x 3 3/4" brown card stock.  Center it in the bottom half of the card under the opening....and mark with a light pencil...the edge where you will be stamping.

Take the card back out and stamp the boughs and pinecones.

Put a very thin line of adhesive on each side of the inside of the bottom flap.  Adhere it to the back.  Add a piece of brown stitched ribbon to the top of the bottom half.

Then, stamp Merry Christmas at the top of the inside card.

Hope the directions make sense.  I can see using this idea for different occasions.

  1. Great card. Love the pine branch with the pine cones and what a great idea to use a torn edge. I haven't done that for a long time.
