Christmas tree card tutorial with ornaments and gifts!


 oday I wrapped the last gifts, now everything is ready under my Christmas tree, there is a really good atmosphere and Christmas is very close.
I am very proud and honored for all the pet portraits I painted, they are gifts that will be opened this Christmas all over the world, I've done my best to paint everything in time, it was a really crazy period for me (I painted also at night!) but it's my favourite period of the year, I love my work so much!! Thanks from the bottom of my heart to all my wonderful customers!!

I'd like to share with you another Christmas card I created for one of my best friend, it's quite simple to make but is really cute and can be personalized in the way you prefer. 

-light purple cardboard
-green cardboard
-brown paper ( I recycled a piece of brown wrapping)
-colored cardboards and ribbon as you prefer for the tree ornaments and the gifts (you can also use pieces of wrapping paper of your gifts)

1-Cut a rectangle 8,3"x11,6" from the purple cardboard and fold it in the middle

2-Fold the card in horizontal as in the image, 5,2" from the border

3-Draw the shape of an half Christmas tree as in the image:

4-Cut the tree shape:

5-Fold following the dotted line:

6-Fold downwards following the dotted line:

7- Open the card and bend the shape of the tree towards the inside:


8-Cut a tree shape from the green cardboard:

 and stick it on the purple tree shape of the card:

9-Add the vase made with the brown paper:

Now the funniest part!! You can add all the decorations you prefer, free your imagination!
