Step 4: (card photo 4) Get your cardboard then equally fold this crosswise.

Step 5: (card photo 5) Get your white paper then measure this on the dimension of the cardboard. Be sure to leave at least 1 centimeter on all sides. Cut this and glue the white paper on the inner part of the cardboard.

Step 6: (card photo 6) Cut your green sponge in reference to your Christmas tree pattern.

Step 7: (card photo 7) Using the green sponge Christmas tree, cut the yellow sponge but make sure that this is 1 centimeter bigger than the green one. This will highlight the Christmas tree, giving it a 3D effect.

Step 8: (card photo 8) Concrete glue the yellow sponge to the green Christmas tree sponge. Afterward, fix this on the front of the card using hot glue.

Step 9: (card photo 9) Hot glue the star on top of the Christmas tree.

Step 10: (card photo 10) Cut several thin strips of yellow sponge. Then diagonally glue it across the Christmas tree. These will be the garland of the Christmas tree.

Step 11: (card photo 11) Cut several small circles from the red and yellow sponge paper. This will be the Christmas balls of the tree.

Step 12: (card photo 12) Cut a pot-shape from the orange sponge. Then cut another pot-shape from the red sponge but this one will be bigger than the orange one. Glue this together.

Step 13: (card photo 13) Put the pot-shape on the bottom of the tree. This will be the base of the tree.

Step 14: (card photo 14) Form a Santa hat from the red sponge. Also cut a white lining and a small circle, then stick it on the bottom, for the lining and the circle on top for the pompom of the hat.
