Christmas 3D tree card

I used a folding method I learned from a card workshop I took not long ago.  It's the same fold, but you cut the paper 5 different sizes...graduated.  The paper has a glimmer and sheen, but does not have sparkles.  I used lots of little red flat paper shiny gems.  I have only been able to find them in a specialty card craft stamp store I patronize when I have a little extra cash....so you know I don't visit it often...haha   I used a little corner punch for the corners.
      I'm really hurrying to add this to the Operation Write Home challenge.  This is the first card I've done in 3 weeks.  But in the evenings, lying in bed, I've been working on some svgs to post real soon.  Finished up my 80 "Save the Date" cards yesterday and delivered.  
Size A2...can't remember the name of the paper, but bought at specialty shop


  1. That is lovely. Glad to see you crafting and that you got those save the date cards done. HUGS!

  2. Absolutely beautiful card... I love the tree...

  3. Cool fold. That would make a nice tutorial.

  4. Cely
    This is really pretty.
    Hope you and yours have a grand Christmas

  5. Merry Christmas Cely! Beautiful card! :-D

  6. This is really cool. Cely! You'll have to send me directions! lol!

  7. Beautiful! Do you know how to fold fancy springy things too? I agree with Yolanda, it'd be a great tutorial - maybe it could be produced now and go live in August when we start on Christmas cards for OWH! :)

  8. This is so cool, Cely! :) I haven't seen this before. Real pretty paper, too!
