Here's my project: Sparkling Christmas Tree Card
I have made several of these cards with different images. This one is made using Cricut Craft Room Basics for the rectangle and Christmas for the tree. The rectangular base is a real dial ON 8.5" wide by 4.25" high rectangle. I used my gypsy to weld a real dial OFF 4.10" high Christmas tree to the right side of the rectangle. You can substitute any shape as long as you stretch this shape so the shape is as tall as your card. I then cut a real dial OFF 4.10" base and shadow tree.

You can see where I added the blackout tree
and why I added the white liner.
I like to use glittered cardstock for this project because it easily adds dimension. It is hard to see but the white and dark green layers were cut from glittered paper. These papers are from a stack I got at Michaels.

I used my craft bond glue stick to adhere the layers of the Christmas tree. Then I glued the blackout tree to the backside. It just makes a more finished card. I cut a plain white cardstock liner (base) to cover the wild print paper. If the back of your paper is lightly colored you might not need the white liner piece.

To finish the card I added a clear Christmas sentiment sticker. You could write or stamp your message. I liked how easy it was to apply the sticker and not worry about ink getting on the wrong places.
Have fun making Christmas cards in the good ole summertime!!
