DIRECTIONS:

Have yoursELF a merry little Christmas card:

  1. Choose a piece of cardstock for your card base and trim and fold into desired card size.
  2. Use the Fiskars® Squeeze Punch: Large - That's Amore to punch a heart from green cardstock. Feed the negative space back into the punch at an offset angle to create the shoe shape. Repeat on the other side of the heart for the opposite shoe.
  3. Trim a small strip of darker green cardstock using the pinking paper edger and adhere to the shoes to create a cuff.
  4. Cut a paper straw in half and flatten to create the elf legs and adhere to the card base. Adhere the shoes under the straw legs using an adhesive foam square to make up for the straw’s thickness.
  5. Hand cut a pair of shorts and adhere to the top of the straws.
  6. Hand cut a banner and write “Have yoursELF a merry little Christmas” on it.
  7. Adhere the banner to the card under the elf.

 

Deck the Halls Card:

  1. Choose a piece of cardstock for your card base and trim and fold into desired card size.
  2. Choose two cards from your deck of cards and run through the Fuse using the ornaments die. Be sure to get the edge of the card in the design to add to the playing card feel.
  3. Trim a small strip of gray cardstock to create the ornament hanger.
  4. Attach baker’s twine and a bow to the back of the ornament and adhere all to the card base.
