Freebie Friday: Free Printable 3D Christmas Card Merry and Bright UPGRADE Version #2

merry and bright upgrade

Aha!  I figured how to use up some more of my washi tape!  I liked the free printable I offered last week because it was bright and fresh.  I printed out 10 of them for me to send out this year. But then I thought it would be fun to give the cards an UPGRADE by making them 3D.

This is the free printable I offered last week, I printed 10 of them and trimmed them to 5×7 folded.


merry start 1I cut out a cardstock tree slightly larger than the tree graphic on the card. Then I covered it with washi tape overlapping to the back so the thicker washi tape made a pillow effect.  I made different washi tape trees being as creative as I wanted.

This ended up being my favorite combination of them all and after making 6 different ones, I duplicated this design for all the others.

After all is said and done, the 3D Christmas trees made a definite UPGRADE to the original idea…plus more washi tape is GONE. LOL.
