Santa Clause Is coming to town video will teach you how to cut this card out.. I created this card last year I sketched a template and saved for my future cards, I even laminated it so I could always look back to remember how to cut the card. THe idea hit me last year, when I bought the christmas solutions cart, I saw santa flying thru the moon and just had to create a card for my mom and dad, it was a childhood memory of an ornament my mom always put out sooo this card hopefully will make sense when you watch the video I hope it helps. As I said it is all free hand cutting good luck and you need a full 12 by 12 sheet of cardstock for this card, I really dont have a size or measurement its up to you, it can be an a2 or whatever size you prefer.. Its 8 minutes long but you can fast forward once you watch it once.

I made this with Ds Yes i bought Ds, it was going for a great price on ebay and I thought I better get it since its now compat. to gypsy. I made this with ds used a ribbon that say tis the season, used a gold poster board I found at hobby lobby, little beads, and some border gold stickers. This was soooo much fun and easy to make Im loving being able to weld, I am not having a hard time with ds since I know now how to use it from all the great videos and from using the gypsy it has made it much easier to understand.

Steps for this card take a 12x 12 cardstock paper and measure size card a2 or any size card is fine then gently cut free hand all the way to the other side of the cardstock as you see above..... then first flap, then second flap to close the card. now Find a background sturdy enough to hold as your base the full square that you will be gluing the entire card to. I hope this helps this was my personal idea I dont measure just hope for the best lolol but this is pretty easy if you look at the pictures above the measurements for gypsy were 2 1/2 for trees, 2 1/2 inches for the houses the circle i started 1.66 on height and the santa i did1.29 height. I used christmas solutions and george for the circle ...I hope this helps design this card or give you idea of how to creat the base.. Have fun with it its a great base to do just about anything for any holiday:)

Thank you for coming to visit:) I am not sooo great at the blog thing, I am learning as I go along:) I have posted instructions on my 50th Mickey bday card the instructions are backwards but hopefully they are helpful to you in making this card. I used the Crafters companion the first time and it was a helpful tool, but with the way the economy is and the new gyspy, sometimes an extra tool like the crafters companion is on the wish list so, hopefully if you follow this it will give you an idea of how to fold this card, thank you for looking and I hope it helps:) MAYFLOWER
