Faux Laser Cut Christmas Tree

Faux Laser Cut Christmas Tree

I recently took the Holiday Card Workshop 2022 and really enjoyed using the techniques and inspiration to create a bunch of holiday cards. I had been suffering from a serious case of “lack of mojo-itis” (and limited time), and this was just what the doctor ordered! I focused on the techniques for each of the classes and kept the “finishing” of the cards pretty simple. And I did not stress if I only got to one of the two lessons each day. It’s supposed to be fun, right?!

Day 1 focused on die cutting, and the first lesson was called “Faux Laser Cut Cards” taught by Jennifer McGuire. You need two dies for this technique; the tree die came from the “Christmas Tree Shaker Die” set from Cheery Lynn Designs, and the second die was the “Flourish Vine Die” from Gina Marie Designs (no longer available?). I know the vine is not “Christmas-y, but I am trying to limit my purchases for this class so I used what I had!

I used Gina K Designs Christmas Pine ink and card stock. The greeting was from the “Merry Tree” mini set, also from GKD.

If you are interested in seeing how to do this technique, check out the class over at Online Card Classes!

Thank you for checking out my card project!

  1. Beautiful tree! I chose not to take the class due to not wanting to purchase items specifically for the class, which I would have done. Love your tree with the beautiful Christmas Pine paper.


  2. Diffanatly got your mojo back. Christmas specific not required to make it for the holiday. Saw a sunflower stamped in green and red dots add that created the prettiest wreath’


  3. Beautiful laser cut card. I think the vine works extremely well with your Christmas tree. I enjoyed the classes and the fact that you can use your own supplies. Looking forward to seeing more.


  4. I have to check this out as I’ve seen something I would like to try, but don’t want to purchase the dies. I love how this turned out. It is simple yet truly elegant.
