3D Christmas Tree Cards using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge

Yesterday was a raining day and what better to spend it then doing a little crafting. :) Here are the 2 cards that I made.... they both have 3D Christmas Trees on them.

 

I used the CTMH Pear & Partridge Paper Pack along with the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to make both of them. For the little tree on the right I just cut 4 little trees (I think 1 1/4"), folded/scored them in half and then adhered them all together to create a little 3D tree that pops off the paper. You could make them any size but I kept mine small so I could put it inside the metal frame I used. For the holly tree I cut out a bunch (not sure how many but looks to be about 18 from the picturre) of holly leaves at 1 3/4". The reason I did 1 3/4" is cause the stamp set I used coordinates with the cartridge and indicated that size on the carrier sheet. The holly stamp I used is from "A Holiday" stamp set but unfortunately it's not available any more. However, you could use a background stamp and just cover the entire leaf to get the same look. I also used the New England Ivy ink to sponge all the edges to cover the white core that was showing. To give it a 3D effect I made the base of the tree and then added 4 leaves over the top with 3D foam squares so they were raised. I used some Red Glitz to add some ormanets, added a red star cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and viola!

Pretty cute and simple, right?

Silly question, I know, but how do you mail 3D cards like these without damaging them?
