Start by covering the card blank in two different pink patterned papers.
Use the template to cut the Christmas tree from two different green patterned papers. Use a scoring board and bone folder to crease down the centre of the smaller tree.
Punch out lots of small pink patterned paper circles and glue them to the smaller tree. Stick some of them on with sticky foam pads for added dimension. Apply star embellishments to some of the baubles.
Cut a tree stump from blue card and glue it to the bottom of the bigger tree. Layer the smaller tree on top of the other tree, using sticky foam pads to make either side of the tree stand out.
Cut a small length of ribbon and tie it in a bow. Attach it to the bottom of the tree.
Finish by attaching the Christmas tree to the card blank with sticky foam pads.
