Charlie Brown Christmas tree card

One of my favorite memories from childhood was watching the Charlie Brown Christmas special.  It was always a tradition, to make popcorn, watch the cartoon, and go to bed dreaming of a white Christmas.  The little tree from the show is a reminder to cherish the simple things in life…the chance to spend time with family, the ability to sit and have dinner together.  I am blessed that most of my family live in the same state, and always look forward to getting together with them!  These are the cards that I will be sending out to my family this year, inspired by the Charlie Brown Christmas tree!

Here’s what you’ll need to make this card:

Crumb Cake cardstock base-5 x 1/2″ by 8 x 1/2″, scored at 4 x 1/4″ on the long side, plus a small piece to cut the tree stand
Presents and Pinecones Designer Series paper-there are several designs in the pack, just pick the one you like!  5 x 1/4″ by 4″Emerald Envy cardstock-3 x 3/4″ by 3″, plus a bit to use for the Thinlits dies
Shimmery White cardstock-3 x 1/2″ by 2 x 3/4″
Soft Sky and Basic Black ink pads
Christmas Pines Photopolymer Bundle, which includes both stamp set and dies!
Jingle bell and gold twine

Begin by diecutting a large and medium branch from the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies.  Trim bottom branches from large branch, and cut medium branch in half and trim as needed.  Using Soft Sky ink, stamp the big snowflake stamp onto the Shimmery White cardstock.  Adhere the branches and cut 2 small pieces of Crumb Cake to make the tree base.  Run the jingle bell through with a piece of twine, and attach to the top of the tree.  I left the top of the tree unglued so I could do this.  Once my bell was in place, I bent the tree top a bit to the left.

Stamp the Simple Joy message in Basic Black ink to the pretty paper piece.  Assemble as shown.
