Christmas Card Tree

Welcome to Funky Cards

Today is December 19th and it is finals week for me:)  Christmas break is just around the corner and I can't wait!!  My brother Aaron is already home from UC San Diego for his break and as I mentioned before, Dalton will not be able to make it home from the Navy this year.

I have been able to find time to craft even though I have been busy working and keeping up with my homework.  One of the things I made was a Christmas card tree.  I wanted a way to display the Christmas cards that have come in the mail.

This tree started with a tree brach cut from the front yard.  It was put in a pretty vase that was filled with float rock from the yard.  Yippy, no expense:)  Snowflakes were cut from several different Cricut cartridges including Accents Essentials and Winter Woodland.  These snowflakes were adhered to the tree with a tiny piece of tape from my ATG Gun.  Once the tree was finished, it was ready to add the cards.  A small hole was punched in each card and a piece of red ribbon was used to hold the card in place.  The tree is the center piece on our dining room table.

Thanks for stopping by today!
