Hand Painted Christmas Tree Cards
Here's a simple and fun way to make a Christmas tree card to add a personal touch to holiday gift giving.
Here I used plain white card stock. Watercolor paper or mixed paper would also work. Pick 2-3 colors and apply paint in stripes using a dry brush technique. (use small amounts of paint with no water). Vary the line and pressure to create a textured look.
Here are a few different papers that I made. I used gold, green and blue acrylic paints.
Cut out triangles using ragged edged scissors.
Cut along the bottom of the triangle to make a little stump. I decided to keep the stump the same colors as the tree. Feel free to paint it a solid color.
I then added gold dots and swirls using 3D fabric paint.
Attach the tree to a card using glue or sticky dots. I like to use zots.
Poke a hole in the top of the tree using a push pin.
Place a star brad through the hole and attach.
Taadaa! Simple and fun Christmas tree cards and tags!
