Christmas Card and Free Template

Quick and easy Christmas Tree Card and Free Template.

This card comes together very fast after you get your template made.
Make your template out of something that you can use again and again, that way you don't have to recreate every time you want to make the card again.

The over top mat size is
4 1/4" x 6
The card base needs to be at least 6 1/5"x5" this fits in a standard 7 1/4"x 5 1/4" envelope.

The mat under your top needs to be 6 1/4"x  4 1/2" if you are going to double mat as I did

The star on top is 3/4"

Here is the template drawn out

All of the information on how to cut this is in the video tutorial.

Easy and Quick Shaker Card

I know you have all seen shaker cards all over the internet and so have I, but I had a customer request for this card she said they intimidate her for some reason. So she asked if we could show her step by step how to make an easy one. This is the results below. I love making them, you can put anything inside for the shaker elements, just use your imagination.

Video Tutorial:

The supplies I used are linked below the video.

The dimensions are a regular top folding card 5 1/2"x 4 1/4". Score in the middle of the 11" side at 5 1/2".

Outside frame dimensions is same as card base, all I did was come in 1/2" from all sides and cut out the middle to create the frame part. The acetate is 4x5 1/4". I just used a stamp set I had for the trees, Nuvo glitter drops in White blizzard to create the snow and an old stamp set for the Merry Christmas. To make the glitter drops have even more of an impact add white glitter to them while they are still wet. Glue a few of the sequins around on the page so they will stay in place this help create the illusion of snow falling in your card.

Put all your pieces together and you have a lovely shaker card, quick simple and oh so fun!!

This is a really easy, quick and cute project for a fall table. And you can put any type of goodies inside. Below are all the measurements.

If you make one of these I hope you will share with us on our Facebook Members room, the link is below.

Instructional Video:

Cardstock 7"x11"
Score on two long sides at 1" then turn and scor on short side at 4" and 5"

Now you will need a cup, glass or something to make an arch in the top and bottom to cut out, I just used an old CM die that I had.

Arch the top like show in the photo and then arch the bottom the opposite way.

Cut in on your two vertical score lines and notch the pieces on either side as show in the video.

Cut a piece of white cardstock at 5"x2", punch or use decorative scissors to make the scallop on one long edge. Lay this piece on the bottom of the piece that is arched and glue, then cut to match the arch on the under piece.

Belt is 7/8"x5"

Buckle is 1 1/2"x1 1/2"
On buckle mark in on two sides at 1/4" and then down on that same mark at 1/4" from top and bottom (this will be where you start and stop cutting), cut the slits in this piece on both sides at the 1/4" marked sport. Leaving 1/4" from either end of the slits.

Slide your belt through the buckle and glue in place

Use 3/8" x 2" ribbon or piece of paper to make the tie. Cut the slants on either end.  Glue in place.

Then you are ready to assemble the box, put glue or tape on the small side pieces, tape down the two little flaps to the bottom as shown in the video. Then put the sides together, creating your favor box.

That is it quick and simple, but oh so cute.
