Tim Holtz Sizzix Trim a Tree Christmas Slimline Card by Cheiron Brandon!

Hi friends! Happy Saturday! I’m delighted to welcome back special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog with this super fun and festive card! Read on to learn more and enjoy!

Hi there crafty friends, it’s Cheiron Brandon here and I have a fun Christmas card to share with you today. I love to make batches of cards to mail out but I also like to make some very special cards to put in packages or to give in person, especially when it involves shimmer and sparkle. Today I am playing with one of my favorite holiday combos of navy, gold and white using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Trim A Tree and Christmas Cutouts dies. 

To create this card, I cut a panel of Simon Says Stamp Soft Navy Cardstock 3 7/8 X 8 3/8. Then I cut all the Tree pieces from the Trim A Tree dies from Distress Watercolor Cardstock. I punched all the small inside pieces out from the die cuts and then curled the edges of the trees up and adhered them all together. Once the tree was assembled, I cut the star from the Trim A Tree dies and the Joy and the small cluster of stars from the Christmas Cutouts from Sizzix Gold Glitter Paper

Once my dies were all cut out, I cut a snowy hill to fit the width of my card using the Simon Says Stamp Slimline Snowflakes dies. I added it to the bottom of the Soft Navy Panel, then added the Joy letters. I added the tree onto the snowy hill and then added the large gold star from Trim a Tree with foam tape. I added all of the tiny stars I cut from the Christmas cutouts around the tree. To create snow, I tool a medium point Posca marker and added some dots between the stars. To finish the card and make it really shine, I added a bunch of gold Metallic Droplets as ornaments. 

I hope you had fun creating this card with me! It is really easy to do and you could make several in a day if you wanted to by doing each step in an assembly line! Wishing each and every one of you a very happy holiday season!
