Directions
 

Use the die that has the three sizes of curls. Die cut all three sizes in a dark and light green. Make sure you have at least six large curls, nine medium curls and seven small curls.
 

Layer the curls in the different shades of green to create the tree on the card. Start at the bottom of the tree and work your way to the top. Use the pictured sample as a guide.
 

 Place about three medium curls at the center base. Place a large curl on either side. Next layer four medium curls above. Next layer two large and two medium curls.
 

Add one large and small curl on one side and one small curl on the other side. Then repeat for the next layer, except place the large curl on the opposite side. Use three small curls to form the top of the tree.
 

Punch out 17 hearts from red cardstock. Use five of the hearts to form a flower at the tip of the tree and glue in place. Glue the rest of the hearts throughout the branches of the tree.
