Swirly Christmas Tree Suspension Card


It’s been longer than normal since I posted as my parents have been visiting and when we get together we tend to shop ’til we drop! They have received their Christmas card from us now so I can share it with you now too :)

I cut my Swirly Trees from some glitter card then folded them in half and glued them together back to back, before I glued the first tree to the last tree I slid some thread through to the middle of the tree leaving some of the thread hanging out of the top and the bottom, I then glued the trees closed.  The thread needs to be sandwiched between the card base and the front layer with some red liner style strong tape, ensuring that it is nice and taut. Before I assembled my card I added some ribbon, jingle bells and a sentiment to my patterned paper card front, it is important to do this first if you like to hide your ribbon ends.

This is how it looks with the card fully open:

The 3D Tree can be folded flat to place your card into an envelope although it will need some coaxing back into shape by the recipient:

    Thank you so much! Your card is beautiful! I usually cut a piece of card and place over something so delicate to put in the envelope – slides in and out much easier. It usually doesn’t cost any more to mail either. Hugs!!

    Sounds as if you had a wonderful visit. :0) The card, oh my goodness, it is gorgeous. It’s beautiful, I can tell it will be time consuming. Hmmmmm, since you’ve given us this card maybe we’ll have time to get them all made in time for next year. LOL Thank you so very much. Wishing you Merry Christmas.
