In Color Evening Evergreen Holiday Card
An Evening Evergreen Holiday Card using the perfectly plaid tree punch was easy to put together and highlights this new dark green In-Color. I think it’s going to be my christmas favorite this year!
A surprising place to find matching paper for a holiday card is in the non-holiday designer series paper! Oftentimes, the reverse side of themed DSP is equally gorgeous patterns that show off specific colors.
Incidentally, while I was looking for a cute paper for this holiday card, I found it in the Pansy Petals pack! It showed off the new In-Color Evening Evergreen!
Monochromatic cards are quickly becoming a favorite of mine to make, plus I like to make cards for my In-Color club members each month that show off what can be done with the goodies they received!

How to make an Evening Evergreen Holiday Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Evening Evergreen
- 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, folded at 4 1/4” for a card base
- 2 3/4” x 4” , die cut with medium stitched rectangle
- Scraps for 2 pine trees
- Striped DSP
- 3” x 4 1/2”, die cut with large stitched rectangle
- With this size, you can get 10 from each 12” x 12” piece of DSP. This information is useful if you are making a stack of cards for the holidays. For more tips on creating cards in bulk, click here!
- Scrap – punch out a pine tree
- Crumb Cake
- 2 1/2” x 3 1/2”, die cut with small stitched rectangle
- Scrap for sentiment, die cut with extra small long stitched rectangle
- On the extra small crumb cake rectangle, stamp your sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink.
- Next, use your Evening Evergreen scraps and stamp two of the pine trees (I chose the plaid and the branched) with Evening Evergreen ink. Punch them out.
TIP: For a fun monochromatic look, stamp using ink of the same color as your cardstock!
Put it all together:
- Adhere your 3 stitched rectangles together (crumb cake on top, then evening evergreen, and striped on the bottom). Next, adhere these to your card base front.
- Lastly, glue your three punched-out trees overlapping each other on top of your crumb cake rectangle, and finish it with the sentiment over their stems.
