When you have the right dies, like Pine Woods, Christmas cards can be made in a jiffy. I used this design a few weeks ago, in pastel colors. Today, I used Plaid Tidings Designer Paper and green (Shaded Spruce) for the tree.

Pine Tree & Plaid


I just found out that the Pine Woods Dies are 30% off in Stampin’ Up’s Year-End Closeout that begins December 8th! The sale lasts through January 4th, but order early, so you won’t be disappointed. When things sell out, they’ll be gone forever. Click here to see the looooong list:



Now, back to my card. The card base is Thick Whisper White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″, topped with a layer of Plaid Tidings Designer Paper, 4″ X 5 1/4″.

I used a Nature’s Thoughts Die to cut the detailed rectangle from Whisper White Cardstock, which is approximately 2 3/4″ X 4 1/4″. 

Next, I used a Pine Woods Die to cut the Christmas tree from the rectangle, and backed it with Shaded Spruce Cardstock, 1/8″ smaller than the white rectangle. The tree die is in the picture above, and all the supplies can be seen in my Product List below.


Prior to gluing the tree to the plaid card front, I stamped the rectangle with “lots of love at Christmas.” This fun, curvy, sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set, stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink. And, that’s all there was to it.


This card was so “quick & easy” I made three, using three plaids that all had some Shaded Spruce to coordinate with the tree.


Here they are in pastel colors:
