1.       Cover a card with music sheet patterned paper, and distress the edges with a file.  Cut the red patterned paper to 2 ¾ x 5 ½”, distress the edges with a file, and adhere the panel to the card.  Tie a bow with the light blue ribbon, and adhere the ribbon to the card ½” from the bottom edge of the red patterned paper panel.  Trim the ends.

2.
 Apply the striped and holly leaf border rub-ons along the top and bottom edge of the red patterned paper panel.  Tip:  The border rub-ons were not quite the length of the card, so I cut the rub-on into two pieces, determining where the tree on the card would be placed to hide the empty space, and applied them from each end.

Cut a triangle shape from a 3 ¾ x 3” green patterned paper panel.  Apply border rub-ons for the tree’s garland.

4.
Hand sew, or adhere if desired, the buttons and beads onto the green patterned paper panel for the tree’s ornaments.  Make a base for the tree by cutting the brown patterned paper to 1 ½ x 1 1/8” and tapering the edges.  Adhere both panels to the card to complete the tree.

Apply the letter stickers to the card for the title/sentiment.  Apply the green border rub-ons along the title/sentiment to finish the card.
