Unique Christmas Greetings With This 3D Christmas Card

15 Materials
6 Hours

Craft a special Christmas greeting and let the snow storm in this special 3D Christmas card, filled with winter wonders such as Christmas trees, snowflakes, Christmas elves and more. Use various cutting dies, a transparent dome, different colours of cardstock, stars and ribbon to create beautiful scenes and snowy landscapes - simply idyllic! Send the 3D cards to your loved ones or hang them on the Christmas tree as special handmade baubles.

Use the Cut ’Em Easy machine to cut out a circle with scalloped edges, a little larger than the perimeter of the transparent dome.

Cut little houses, trees and a gnome out of different colours of Florence cardstock.

Create a scene by layering the individual parts on top of one another: starting with the patterned paper at the bottom with the pattern facing up, then the cut-out houses and trees on top. Use a circle stencil the same size as the dome or a little smaller to cut out all of the layers in one go.

Punch out the snowflake and stick all of the figures down using foam tape for added depth.

Stick everything onto the scalloped circle and add some rhinestones for some extra sparkle. Place some snow and stars in the centre of the card.

Apply glue to the edges of the plastic dome and and stick it to the card.

Create a pendant by fastening a lace ribbon and jute twine to the ornament.
