Easy Christmas Tree Cards


I'm back with some more cards for you! My yearly intentions are to make a few Christmas cards every month, but ultimately I find myself looking at my Christmas papers a month or so before Christmas wondering what kind of cards to make. At this point I need all the help I can get and so I love looking around the internet and finding easy Christmas cards to make that look good.

I found my inspiration for this card off Pinterest. It was made by Shari Carroll and it includes a video on SimonSaysStamp

It was fun and easy to make!

Basically I tore up some white paper for the snow and covered it with glue and shook some snow type glitter on it. 

The tree is just some brown paper cut into strips with silver pipe cleaner glued to it. 

The background paper was just some paper I had. I anchored it all with black and silver paper.

This one was super easy to do and my own creation. Some ripped paper, cut out triangles, a rub-on, some mirrored snowflakes from the dollar store and a bit of bling!

Well, that's all for today.



  1. Two beautiful and sparkly Christmas cards, Carmen! Love all the glitter on your first one - a fantastic winter scene full of Christmas feel! Your second card is so contemporary elegant with the black and white color scheme.

  2. You did a nice job! thanks for sharing!
