Good morning!

I hope it’s not too cold where you are friends, because this card requires a trip outside. You only need a few things for it though, so it will be an easy project with max results.

Materials needed:

  • Card base
  • Patterned paper background cut to fit card base (I layered a pattern and solid to be my background.)
  • Thin twig
  • Ribbon – preferably with a bit of green but no matter!
  • Star or sparkly embellishment
  • Quick-dry adhesive

 

Begin working with your background piece – don’t put it on the card yet. Put a strip of glue at the middle top. (See below.) This will start your ribbon tree. Place the beginning of your ribbon at the top point and lay it down.

Place the beginning of your ribbon at the top point and lay it down. Then lay your twig on top, putting a dot of glue under the top.

Do you notice that dot of glue to the right? Well flip your ribbon over and glue it down on top of the dot.

It should now look something like this…

If you notice, I also continued on, sliding the ribbon under the twig and putting another dot of glue to the left to adhere that “branch”.  Keep going until you get to the bottom.

Last thing is to add the topper, I went for a brad (hence why I didn’t adhere the background to my card first. You could use anything fun!
