Get at least two different colors of ribbon with a width of 3/8 inch. Cut the ribbon into gradually longer lengths. These are the branches of your Christmas tree. As you cut, make sure to stagger the colors.
Cut a piece of card stock the length of an unfolded Christmas card. Fold the paper in half.
Trim the ends of the ribbon with pinking shears for a scalloped edge. This gives the ribbon a more branch-like appearance.
Position the ribbon on the front of the card. Place the shortest piece at the top, and continue down to the longest piece so that you have a tree shape. Between each length of ribbon, leave a small border of paper.
Starting at the bottom of the card, sew a vertical line through the center of each ribbon until you reach the top piece. To simulate a tree trunk, sew the line well bellow the bottom layer of ribbon.
