I have grouped everything you need for each card in its own separate SVG to make it easier. The SVGS are listed in the supplies above.
We will start with card number one, the abstract tree and stars. Cut the card base (perforated) once and the insert twice. I cut my abstract tree out twice for a little bit more stability. Cut out as many stars as you want. Be sure to cut out at least one of the larger ones to use as a tree topper.
Take one of the insert/panel pieces and add double-sided tape to the back, then secure it on the inside of the card to write your sentiment. You may want to write on this first in case you mess up.
Layer the two abstract trees together with wet glue to give this piece some really nice dimension.
Apply the abstract tree and stars as desired. Remember to place the larger one on the top. I used black ink to stamp my sentiment.
Add foam dots to the back of the front panel and attach it on top of the card base, and card 1 is done!
Now let's work on card 2 with the triangular Christmas trees. Cut out the card base and the insert in white and the second insert in translucent vellum to use as a front panel. Cut out the Christmas trees in whatever color combination you like. I cut my trees out in one color to make everything easier, and because the Mirror paper is just so shiny and pretty! Plus I like the monochromatic look. Feel free to cut the outline in one color and the inserts in another.
Lay the outline tree pieces as desired on your vellum. Wet glue is best for this.
Add the solid pieces as desired. I put foam tape under mine to add dimension. On the back of my vellum piece, I added foam tape under the solid tree parts. This will help to secure the vellum to the card without any adhesive showing.
To mimic fake snow I adhered mini white dots above the trees. You can use a gel pen or flick paint for this instead.
I peeled off the foam tape backing and then I took the tiniest double-sided clear glue dot that I could find and adhered it to the top of the vellum to secure it. I hid it underneath one of the white snow dots so that it doesn’t show on the card.
It's time for card 3, the winking reindeer! Cut out the card base and two inserts. Adhere one insert to the inside of the card base, and use the other as your top card panel.
Adhere all the little pieces to make a reindeer face on the remaining panel with wet glue. Apply foam dots to the back of the panel and add to the top of the card base. I used red ink to stamp my sentiment to match my reindeer nose.
Isn't he so cute?
Let's do card 4, another reindeer card! Cut out your card base, insert/panel, and reindeer pieces, and glue them all together using the same process as above. I told you these would be easy! 😉
The final card is the string of lights card. Cut out the card base and the two inserts. Adhere one of the inserts to the inside of the card, and use the other as your front panel.
Apply the colored light bulbs to the white bases. This helps with stability. I used wet glue for these steps. Then, add the tiny black bulb bases to the bottom and the white “glare” strips to the side of the bulbs.
Using wet glue, attach the tangled cord to the top of the remaining insert. Add foam dots to the back of your lightbulbs and attach the lightbulbs to the card as you see fit.
I used hot pink ink to stamp my sentiment and silver Stickles on my lightbulbs to finish off my card.
That’s it! We’re all done! 🙂 I hope these quick and easy card ideas come in handy during your Holiday Card Giving Season!!
