paper cut tree card
Card making at it easiest can simply be cutting and gluing. For a quick and easy greeting card use a sheet of patterned paper or thin card, then cut a few leaves and a tree trunk, glue on a plain background and bingo! Job done!
Take a square of white card 13cm by 14cm and carefully tear one edge which becomes the top. Glue this to a turquoise card blank 15cm square.
Using a patterned paper cut out a simple tree trunk shape and glue to the white card. Then cut by hand leaf shapes of differing sizes. Do not worry if they are not even. Quite a few leaves are needed so just keep cutting.
Now carefully glue on the leaf shapes around the tree trunk, using just small amounts of glue on the leaves. You can apply glue to the leaves with a toothpick/cocktail stick or needle tool. Work outwards from the trunk gluing leaves on the card. Ensure that some of the the smaller leaf shapes are intermingled with larger leaves.
