12 Days of Christmas - Day 8

Today I have a really simple card for you. The whole card took me about 20 min to make so these would make great last minute cards to give away with holiday goodies or to send to family and friends. I got the idea here. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and knew I wanted to try and make it too.
     The tree only consists of different size circles that I cut on my Cricut using Plantin Schoolbook. I cut the circles at 2", 3", 4", and 5", but you could use any sizes you like. I then folded each circle in half then turned it and folded it in half again. Then you just fold in the sides and push the circle flat. I then glued the smallest circle down first leaving room for my star. Then I placed the next circle inside of the smaller circle and glued it down. Repeat with each remaining circle. I Cuttlebug the green layer before I did any gluing and then put a red stud in each corner with my I-Rock tool. I love that thing!:) I cut the star from my Cricut as well using the same cartridge at 3/4". I used Icicle Stickles to make it sparkle like a star should. I glued the whole thing onto a red card base using my ATG gun. Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Plantin Schoolbook
  • Paper: Bazzill and Basic Grey
  • Cuttlebug: Paper Studio-Swirls
  • Studs: I-Rock tool
  • Stickles: Icicle
  • Adhesive: Scotch, and Ek Success 2 Way Glue

     I hoped you enjoyed today's card and I will see you again tomorrow for day 9. Thanks for looking!:)
