This Christmas Card is 5"x7". Cut your paper 10" x 7" and fold in half.
Cut the next sheet 1/4" smaller than 5"x7". Paste the two sheets together. You will see a 1/4" border.
Next cut a sheet of paper 3 1/2" x 5". Now cut a sheet 1/4" smaller than the 3 1/2"x5". You will see a 1/4" border. Glue these two sheets together.
Cut out a border to glue on the bottom of the 3/12"x5" sheets. You make use any design and any height you like best. Now use a piece of ribbon on the 3 1/2"x5" bottom. Wrap a small amount of ribbon to the back and tape the ribbon to the back. Then take another piece of ribbon and make a knot and cut the ends.
Stamp "Merry Christmas" to the top of the 3 1/2"x5" sheet. You can color in the areas of the stamp or leave as is.
Now you can use pop ups to attach the 3 1/2"x5" sheets to the 5"x7" sheets. You will see that it is raised a little and not sitting flat on the 5"x7" papers. This gives some dimension.
Lastly, I used my Cricut Expression and the "Joy of the Season" cartridge to cut out the deer on page 35. I cut the deer at 3". I first cut out the deer using the SHADOW. Next I used the Deer1. I used a lighter brown color for the shadow and a darker brown for the deer and a yellow for the antlers, tail and maine. I used red for the collar. I used pop ups when pasting the deer to the shadow and I glued the tail, antlers and collar and maine.
Lastly, I used pop ups when attaching the deer to the 5"x7" sheets.
(Use coordinating colors for paper. Example: Dark green and Light green or red and white.)
I cut a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of white paper and taped it to the inside of the card so I could write Merry Christmas and Happy New Year inside the card.
Hope you enjoy making this card.
