deer traditional christmas card

Handmaking your Christmas cards has never been so easy (and cute)! Use a metallic stamp pad with a matte stamp pad to create a contrast of texture.
Step 1

Use your paper trimmer to make the cuts from following cardstock:

  • Red Cardstock: 5½"x8½"
  • Red Cardstock: 2"x2¼"
  • White Cardstock: 3¾"x5"
  • White Cardstock: 1¾"x2"
  • Green Cardstock: 4"x5¼"
Step 2

Fold the 5½”x8½" cardstock in half to make your card base. Set aside.

Step 3

Run your Gold ink pad over the red ink on the torn edge.

Step 4

Stamp a deer image with Gold ink onto your small, 1¾"x2", piece of white cardstock and run the Gold ink pad around the edge. Set aside to dry.

Step 5
Choose a couple of icons in your clear stamp set to create a background on the white, 3¾"x5" piece. Stamp the images several times to cover the cardstock in in Gold and red ink.
Step 6

Now, tear about a ¼" down the right side. When tearing, pull the outer edge toward you so the rough edge is visible.

Step 7

Run your red ink pad along the edges of the white cardstock, including the torn edge.

Step 8

Use your adhesive tape runner to attach the torn white cardstock on top of the 4"x5¼" green cardstock.

Step 9

Wrap ribbon around the cardstock layers in the lower section and tie a bow on the right side. Trim the ends of the ribbon as desired.

Step 10

Use your adhesive tape runner to attach the green cardstock onto the front of your card base.

Step 11

Use your adhesive tape runner to attach the small white deer piece on top of the 2"x2¼" cardstock.

Step 12

Attach the small layered deer piece to the left of the bow.
TIP: Don’t forget to add a sentiment to the inside the card!
