The Result of our Zoom Class for World Cardmaking Day

Today is World Cardmaking Day! I offered a free Zoom class for two hours this morning. A couple of nice ladies joined me. We had fun making two cards each of the following three styles of Christmas cards. 

If you didn't know World Cardmaking Day originally started to give stampers a head start on their handmade Christmas cards. 

I used retired products - Holly Jolly Layers Stamp Set, Layering Square Dies, and Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper. 

Cardstock colors - Pacific Point and Mint Macaron

You get to decide whatever sentiment stamp set and die or punch to use with your cards.

Card 1 - Cut the 4" x 5-1/4" Designer Series Paper (DSP) at 2" on the 5-1/4" side and flip one piece over. With another scrap of matching DSP cut 1/2" x 4" to cover the paper seam.

Card 2 - Mini Center Easel Fun Fold cased layout from Dana Hancock
On 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base, score at 4-1/4", fold on the score line.
Then mark 1-1/2" from the left edge and repeat on the right edge as shown in the photo.
Using your paper trimmer, slice on the 1-1/2" marks just up to the fold line on the left and right sides.
Then adhere the left and right sections to the card back, so they won't open.
For the center easel, score the middle section at 2-1/8" from the bottom edge.
Left and Right DSP pieces 1-1/4" x 4"
Center Easel - 2 pieces 2-1/4" x 1-7/8"
Basic White for inside is 2-1/2" x 4"
Use an embellishment for your easel stopper.

Card 2 - Front View

Card 2 - Side-ish View

Card 3 - Triangle Gate Fold Card layout cased from LeeAnn Greff

Single-layer Card base 4-1/4" x 5-1/2"

Designer Series Paper 5-1/4" x 12", scored at 2", 4", 8", 10"
Mark 2-1/4" from top outside corners, draw a line to connect with the 4" and 8" score lines. Trim that section off, but save the pieces.

With those saved pieces measure a right triangle with 2" sides, trim off excess DSP and toss. Adhere the right triangle as shown in the photo above.

Basic White inner layer - 3/1/2" x 4-3/4"

Now we have some ready-to-go Christmas cards! Yippee!
