Wow! This card looks pretty intimidating but once you break down the steps, it’s really very do-able to create. Watch my How-To Video Tutorial for easy step-by-step instructions.
It folds flat to fit into a standard envelope.
Create a support piece to hold the greeting flat on the point of the boxes.
The deer was stamped with Tuxedo Black ink on Velveteen paper using a Stamparatus.
The reindeer also is attached with a support tab.
The pretty ‘Tis the Season 6″ x 6″ designer series paper has a reindeer designer that matches well with the rest of the card. If you plan carefully while cutting a reindeer can actually be seen in the center of each square.
1. Start with a piece of 8″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock for the base. Score at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″ along the 8 1/2″ side so that there is a 1/2″ tape tab.
2. Cut off 2 – 2″ strips so that the strips have all the score lines.
3. Fold all 3 pieces to form cubes and adhere along the 1/2″ score strip with Tear n Tape.
4. Use Tear n Tape to attach the 2 smaller cubes to the large one. Be sure to put the sides with the tape strip to the back.
5. Cut 4 pieces of designer paper 1 3/4″ square. Choose another design and cut 2 more 1 3/4″ squares. Adhere these to the cubes.
6. Stamp the greeting onto whisper white with garden green ink. Die cut with the circle die from the North Pole Wonder Dies. Cut a Brushed Metallic circle with the sunburst die. To attach the greeting cut a 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ strip of garden green, score at 1/2″, 1″ and 2 1/2″ and 3″. Flatten the box as if folding and attach the strip between the two smaller cubes so that the greeting will sit in the opening between them.
7. Cut another 1/2″ x 3″ strip and score at 1/2″ and 2 1/2″. Adhere to the top cube between 2 sides. Making sure that everything still folds.
8. Stamp and cut a reindeer from Velveteen paper and a tree set of Garden Green from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies.
9. Attach the reindeer to the strip across the top cube, making sure that it doesn’t reach higher than 5 1/2″ tall. Place the trees on the back of the cube, again making sure that they don’t make the card taller than 5 1/2″.
