When I was a child, my mother always told me that the reason we used evergreen trees as Christmas trees was because their year-round greenery is a symbol of hope and life even at the darkest of times. I've always loved the evergreen trees for this reason, and I'm excited to share some of our newest pine tree projects alongside a few classics! The Winter Pine Tree Stamps and Dies are designed to fit into your winter and Christmas cards of all types, so if you've been looking for different ways to make Christmas tree cards, you're in the right spot!
1. Stand Out With Your Homemade Christmas Tree Cards
Shana created these trees of varying shades of green and grey. Don't you just love how the green tree pops against the brown and grey?
The warm wishes Shana's sending are sure to make the recipient feel warm and fuzzy. Want to make a similar card? You can layer and create a gradient with distress oxide inks using an acrylic block as a pallet from which to ink your stamps.
2. A Classic DIY Christmas Tree Card
The Christmas tree doesn't have to be solid green though! Once decorated, the evergreen Christmas tree brings endless color into the room! Dana created this classic Christmas tree card with the Vintage Christmas stamps and dies.
Dana's card combines sentiments from the December Moments Stamp Set with the Vintage Christmas Set. She colored this classic Christmas scene with Copic markers and really made things shine with gold glitter glue for a garland and gold colored washi tape along the base of the card. The tree is die cut and adhered to the card backing. She finished it off by banner cutting the red strip with the sentiment and adding the green enamel dot to the banner.

3. Bringing Warmth to Your Handmade Christmas Tree Cards
Julie's warm color palette is so inviting! If you're looking to bring warmth into your loved ones' lives this holiday season, maybe a card like this one would be the perfect way to reach out.
Julie stamped the Winter Pine Tree with a light green ink and die cut it to set above the background of die cut circles. She used the sentiments included with the winter pine tree crafting dies, and finished it all off with a couple of sequins. Perfect for Christmas or winter crafting!
4. Check Out Die Cut Christmas Tree Cards
If you loved the die cutting Julie did, what about a card created just with die cut elements? Well Teri did just that with the Taller Than Trees Dies.
These trees could be part of a Christmas scene, or simply a winter card for somebody who appreciates forests of pine and other evergreen trees. If you're a fan of crafting dies, then you already know how fun they can be to work with! Let the paper say it all for you in a simple card like Teri's.
5. An Unusual Christmas Tree Card Craft!
Shana got so creative with this shaker card! She added a lot of color and sparkle to the Winter Pine Tree Stamps with all those sequins!
Shana stamped her trees with green ink again here, but added the sequins for extra sparkle and shine. Sequins can easily overwhelm a design though, so Shana balanced out the explosion of color by framing it all within a grey die cut oval.
Two bonus Winter Pine cards!
You can share colorful cards all winter long with these Winter Pine Stamps and Dies.
Julie is really excited by how easy it is to create a great stamped image quickly and easily by blending the ink on the stamp and adding a sentiment with the Essential Stitched Labels die. This is a great stamp for mass producing Christmas cards!
