Thursday Tutorial and only 25 days till Christmas-Folded tree card

Wow not only is it time for the Thursday Tutorial but it is the first of December which means there are only 25 days till Christmas. One of my newest places to hangout and find ideas is Pinterest. There are some many wonderful creative ideas. I love looking for ideas that I can adapt by using my Cricut. So for today I wanted to share this really cute Christmas card since this is the theme for FCCB this week.
I found this adorable card which led me to this blog.

Although the card is not made with a die cut I cut my 5" circles with George which made it quick and easy.
Link with PDF for folding and directions. This is another card she made.

Here is my card I made using some of my charms from Creative Charms

Hope you enjoy this project and will try making these cute trees. Hope to see your projects this week for the challenge.

  1. What a gorgeous card! I am off to get the directions! This looks like teabag folding! Thank you for featuring this technique!

  2. That is a very cool tree for a card Suzanne! Love the dimention of it but not so much that it will make the card to bulky and of course the look is adorable!!

  3. Great stuff. Thanks for sharing. I did wonder about making those trees.

    Be Blessed, Beckie

  4. Oh my goodness Suzanne, these are wonderful...I love that fold! Thanks so much for sharing...on my way to check it out!

  9. Wow! Thanks so much for featuring my folded tree cards! I'm off to explore YOUR site, too! And...FYI to the earlier poster...the folded trees do not add a lot of bulk to the card! Then smash down, then pop back up when out of the envelope!

  10. I LOVE those trees! Thanks so much for this, Suzanne!

  11. Love these cards! The trees are super cute. Great job!

  12. That's so cute and great for patterned paper.

  13. I've seen this before, but she doesn't say which fold is first on her diagram. To bad cause it looks cute!

  14. Thanks so much. I am having chemo now, but think I could create these trees in time
