What’s a girl to do when she loves a product collection so much that she just can’t get enough? Make holiday cards with it, that’s what!
Painted Harvest is just stunning with its bright colours and beautiful patterns. It would be a shame to pack it away after creating autumn layouts. The designer paper pack is incredibly versatile and works wonderfully in some fun and funky holiday cards.
To create our cards you’ll need the following supplies:
- Painted Harvest Patterned Paper Pack
- Royal Blue Cardstock
- Brown Cardstock
- Circle Pattern Custom Cutting System
- Bubbles Border Maker Cartridge
- The Tape Runner
- 12-inch Paper Trimmer
- All-Purpose Scissors
- Christmas Quartet Punch
Cut a Brown Cardstock card base to measure 4-1/4″ X 5-1/2″ (8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″). Cut a Royal Blue Cardstock mat to measure 4-1/8″ X 5-3/8″. Cut a Painted Harvest Patterned card layer to measure 4″ X 5-1/4″. Adhere these layers together with even borders around all four sides and then set off to the side.
To create your tree simply cut a triangle out of Royal Blue Cardstock using your 12-inch Paper Trimmer. Use scissors to free-hand cut a trunk for your tree using Brown Cardstock. Then use the smallest circle in the Circle Patterns for the Custom Cutting System along with the Blue Blade and cut some circles using papers from the Painted Harvest collection that have blue tones or accents in them. Next use the same papers and punch a few times using the Bubbles Cartridge from the Border Maker System. Use the circles cut and punched out to decorate the tree. Add rhinestones to bring some shine and sparkle to your holiday card!
For the second card you will follow the first steps outlined above to create your card base and the card layer and mat.
To create the tree you will again cut a triangle out of the Royal Blue Cardstock and a trunk from Brown Cardstock using your scissors. To create the tree decoration, you will punch several snowflakes using the same blue toned/accented patterned paper from the Painted Harvest collection. You will then layer the snowflakes until you feel that the tree is sufficiently covered. Next use rhinestones to decorate your beautiful tree!

Very cute! Would make a nice accent on a Christmas scrapbook page, as well as on cards.
You’re absolutely right! These trees would be super easy to use as an embellishment on a layout!

I love the baubles as well. Painted Harvest is just such a beautiful collection. I can see myself using it on projects all year around!
Loved this and I normally don’t make cards, but I think I am going to start! Also, plan to show this to our granddaughter, she loves playing with scraps of my paper. Thanks!
I love this! Crafting with kids is such a fun way to spend meaningful time together – I hope she enjoys making some fun trees!
