Make a Tree Stencil

Fold a piece of printer paper (scrap paper) in half. Towards the lower end of the fold measure 1.375 inches from the fold and make a dot with a pencil and draw a line from the dot perpendicular to the fold (bottom of the tree). Use a ruler to measure 4 inches from the dot to fold (top of the tree) and draw a line. Then cut along pencil lines and open the paper to reveal the stencil.

Cut Layers

Before starting the focal design, let’s cut the card layers! Cut a piece of 8.5 x 6-inch green cardstock, and fold it in half to form a 4.25 x 6-inch card base. Set aside. Next, cut a piece of black cardstock to 3.75 x 5.5-inch plus scraps for a sentiment.

Place Mask on Background

Use a pencil to lightly mark the vertical center of black cardstock (marks won’t show after the foil is applied) and make a pencil dot .5 inches from the top at the center.

On the back of the stencil, use E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser to apply a few adhesive spots near the tree opening. Align the tree opening top at the pencil dot, use pencil marks to align it straight, and press in place.

Apply Adhesive and Green Foil

At top of the tree opening, apply the adhesive with E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser starting on the stencil, across the tree, and ending on the stencil. Continue to apply rows of adhesive in the same way to cover the tree.

Remove the stencil. Check for any residual adhesive from E-Z Dots® Repositionable Refillable Dispenser on the black cardstock and rub off any found.

Place green holographic foil from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors over adhesive, rub well with fingers and then peel foil away. If there are any places without foil, reapply and rub.

Apply Star

Apply Garland Foil

Place the stencil in place over the tree again. Use E-Z Runner® Micro Refillable Dispenser to apply adhesive in garland-shaped curves going from the stencil, across the tree, and ending back on the stencil. Repeat as desired.

Remove the stencil. Place gold foil from the Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors over the tree and rub well to transfer foil to the garland, then pull the foil away. Repeat if necessary to fill in any places without foil.

Apply Red Foil Balls

Place one Adhesive Dots Mini on the tree, peel away the liner and cover with red foil from Metallic Transfer Foil Sheets Celebrate Colors. Rub well before pulling away the foil. It takes a little more care to pull foil away from Adhesive Dots. Repeat to add more ball ornaments over the tree.

Draw the Tree Trunk

Use a gold pen to draw a short tree trunk. Isn’t it striking against the black cardstock?!

Stamp the Greeting

On a piece of black cardstock, stamp the greeting with Versamark ink and add gold embossing power on top. Tap the excess off and melt it with a heating tool. Cut around the greeting to a narrow strip.

Apply adhesive to the back using E-Z Runner® Petite Permanent Dots Refillable Dispenser and fasten below the tree.

Assemble the Card
