LEARN HOW TO MAKE EASY THREE DIMENSIONAL CHRISTMAS CARDS ON YOUR CRICUT THAT FOLD FLAT FOR EASY MAILING
Okay, I admit it. I still love sending and receiving Christmas cards. I am a sucker for tradition and I just love displaying the pretty sentiments around the entry ways in our house. That is why I wanted to create something special for this holiday season. We all need some wow and pick-me-up, right? I think these Christmas shadow box cards really deliver on that!
The cards are made of four layers that create the “scene”, an outer layer that forms the box, and two layers that come together to add your sentiment on the back.
The best part is they fold completely flat so use the included envelope file to insert the card and send to your family and friends!
As you can see, I have made the same card using a variety of color palettes and it completely changes the look.
