Santa Card – SnowmanLover’s Paperie

Snowmanlover’s Letters to Santa Gift Card/Candy Card Tutorial!  

HI! I am Barbara Gornick from Snowmanlover’s Paperie! I am so very honored to be a Guest on Mandy’s Sugar Bee Crafts Blog! 

I am an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and blog daily, sharing ideas on how to make Cards and fun Paper Projects! I absolutely love my “job” and get to play with paper all day! I reach most of my customers, via my BLOG. I am from the Midwest and transplanted in Dallas, but my customers are from all over the Country! They can either order on my Online Store or become involved in one of my Long Distance Hostess Clubs, Ribbon Shares, Card Kits, Etc. or just enjoy my Blog for inspiration! I love sharing my love of Stampin’ Up! and Card Making and Paper Crafts!

I have created a Tutorial with 7 different Gift/Candy Cards and a bonus box!

Today, I am going to give you a “Sneaky Peek” and share with you how to make the the 1st Card from my Letters to Santa Tutorial. All supplies featured, are from Stampin’ Up! and can be purchased Here at my store!

I call this my “Snowmanlover Pop Open Card”
It is really super easy and fun to make and is sure to surprise it’s recipient! 

First score 1 sheet of 8.5 x 11 Cherry Cobbler Card Stock at 2″ and 6 1/4″ going down

Next turn the card stock 90 degrees and score at the 8″ mark. Where the scored lines meet, cut those out. I have scored them with an “X”.

 It should look like this

Next take your 12×12 patterned piece of Double Sided designer paper from the Letters to Santa Designer Paper pack, using the piece with the Santa…

and cut it like this.  The Santa part is 7 3/4″ x 1 3/4″.
Next cut the side pieces from the extra paper at 7 3/4″ long  x 1 3/4″ wide

So it looks like this when adhered with tape runner adhesive

Add the “Naughty and Nice” with some Silver Brads

When you flip the flap up, add the other side of the double sided green Santa paper. I cut it at 2x 4 ” and placed it on the flap

Now you need to create a “Belly Band” to enclose the card

For the Belly Band cut a piece of Early Expresso Card Stock at 2 1/4″ x 9″. Wrap around the card and fold as you go and you can also score the lines.
Cut out the “he’s gonna find out who’s” at 2×4″
Add Silver Brads. Adhere with Adhesive.

To close up your card, close your side flaps, then the fold the bottom flap up and add the belly band around the bottom part

Just tuck a Gift Card inside or add some candy to the outside and tie a gorgeous bow around the card!

All supplies needed for this card:
Letters to Santa Designer Paper #111349
1 sheet 8.5 x 11″ sheet of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock # 119685
1 sheet 8.5 x 11″ Early Expresso Card Stock # 119686
26 ” of Cherry Cobbler 1 1/4″ Striped Ribbon $125056

Here is another example of my “Snowmanlover Pop Open Card”, using another sheet from this darling, Letters to Santa Designer Paper pack from Stampin’ Up! I used the sheet with the large ornaments on it. Each package of Designer Paper comes with 12 double sided sheets of paper in 6 designs.

    The problem with handcrafted cards is that I feel SO guilty throwing them out later. Couldn’t they come with an expiry date on the back, after which time one is required to pitch them? lol Lovely cards. See what I mean!
