Hello! This is our fourth Christmas card using the Celebrate Christmas Scrapbook kit from Echo Park. I am hoping to give you a bunch of card making ideas by making as many cards as I can from one set. Today I am showing how to create an easy Christmas Reindeer card!
How To Create An Easy Christmas Reindeer Card
Be sure to go look at them all. They are easy and can be made quickly. Nobody has time to spend hours on a card!
– see a picture of this kit below
As with previous cards I have created a video that you can watch below but I have also used some action shots from the video to create a step by step written tutorial. You can scroll past the video if you want to see that instead!
I am sort of a video newbie and am learning editing ropes but they are sort of fun!
Cut out the reindeer piece from the sheet of 2 x 3 cut a parts and ink the edges. It’s so cute.
Use the paper trimmer to cut a 5.25 x 4 piece of the red snowflake paper and ink the edges.
Score the left edge of the reindeer piece 1/4 inch from the edge. Use a ruler and either a stylus or a bone folder to score.
This creates a nice fold line so the piece will open and close easily.
Punch a hole for a piece of the bakers twine in the red snowflake paper. We are adding a little closure for the reindeer piece so it will stay closed.
Cut a piece of ribbon about 4 – 5 inches long and thread it from font to back. Then tape it on the back side of the paper.
Add some adhesive to just the small folded edge of the reindeer piece.
Place it onto the background piece.
Punch a hole in the reindeer piece across from the ribbon and add your brad. Don’t push the brad down all of the way. Leave a little bit of room for the ribbon to wind around.
From the sticker sheet, grab the black sticker with all of the reindeer names. Ink the edges then place it under the reindeer piece as a fun surprise when it is opened.
Fold a 5.5 x 8.5 piece of white card stock in half for the card base and ink the edges.
Place adhesive on the back of the background piece and center it onto the card base.
You are all done!
I hope you like this one too!
