My post for the hop is a Triple Tree Christmas Card.
Kreaxions has such lovely two-sided papers, sized perfectly for card making. I created this card to display those papers and show how easy it is too incorporate both sides in a design.
~ Merry Christmas ~
Cutting and Punching Diagram
Step 1) Cut a piece of two-sided cardstock 5.5" long and 5" tall.
 Step 2) Draw a horizontal line 0.5" down from the top.
Step 3) Mark the cardstock 2.25" from the right side, on the line.  
Step 4) Make additional marks at the bottom of the paper 0.75" from the right and 3.75" from the right.
Step 5) Use a ruler to draw a straight line through the mark at the top and the 0.75" mark at the bottom. 
Step6) Use the ruler again for the mark at the top and the 3.75" mark at the bottom. 
This will create a triangular shape for the tree.
Decorate the Tree
Fold the tree along the right and left triangle sides. 
To decorate your tree use the Kreaxions Circle Cutter set at various widths.
Set the point of the circle cutter at the intersection of the lines at the top of the tree. Begin the cut at the fold mark and cut away from the tree to the edge of the cardstock.
Cut 3", 6", and 8" partial circles on the left side of the tree. On the right side cut 3.5" and 5.5" partial circles.
On the left side of the tree cut the second and forth section away from the tree at the fold line. On the right side of the tree cut the first and third section away at the fold line.
The remaining sections will be the garland. Fold them toward the tree and cut off the excess that extends beyond the tree. Punch the left and right sides of the garland with a Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch. Some punches will work better than others so test various punches to find the right combination for you!
 Fold the punched garland in toward the tree, adhere to lay flat.
For my card I used three different punches
 as well as three types of Kreaxions paper.
For the Green and White tree I used
Punch #909 and the Kreaxions Glitter Paper.
For the black and pink tree I used
For the purple and cream tree I used
