Cut the sides off the two envelopes to open them up all the way. This allows you to cut one with the trees along the bottom and one with the trees along the top. I recommend cutting those sections first before cutting the other two envelope pieces.

Remember to add the vellum tree pieces using adhesive only where the it will be covered.

The punched silver and black trees from the Evergreen Border Punch are just layered together so the black looks like a shadow to the silver.

Everything is flat to the pages except the “Holiday Cheer” page title piece which is added with Dimensionals.

The card is quicker to make. It’s a Bridge-Fold Card and really impressive when pulled out of an envelope because it pops out into its shape right away and can stand on it’s own.

Tie the ribbon around the Basic Black piece, add the punched and layered trees behind, and attach to the card base sides. To attach flatten as shown below: one side folded over on itself and the other open and flat. Then add the sentiment piece with Dimensionals.
