Rocking Christmas Trees

This is the card I first envisioned when I bought this die set. I knew I wanted them to dance and wiggle!

Card Size: 4x6



To make them swing, I create a pendulum for each tree. I used the MFT Slip and Slide disks. I used a small circle circle die to create three holes in the card front. I then adhered the disks to the tree tops, aligned the disks through the holes, and then adhered a circle of cardstock to the other side of the disk.

In order to keep the tree tops from just spinning around, I attached a strip of acetate to the paper circles and added a weight at the bottom of each. You could use a penny (they were really too big here) or a washer. I used some metal elements I think I bough at Archivers a decade ago.

I created a cardstock pocked/side panel on each side of the card to make sure the pendulums wouldn't stick to any foam tape. I used cellophane tape to make sure there weren't any catch points for the pendulum on the pocket/panel. Finally, I used a double layer of foam tape on the top and bottom.

Everyday Tools:

I've been making cards for over ten years and there are a few things that get used on a daily basis. They make cardmaking more joyful for me. I hope this list is helpful for you. Some items are listed with an affiliate link which offers me a small commission at no cost to you (items noted with an asterisk), while others are linked here just because I think these products are the best!

I'm entering this cards into a couple of challenges:

Thanks for checking out today's project! I hope you enjoy!
