Layered Snowflake Word Christmas Cards

Hi There fellow KnK-ers!

I have a set of layered Christmas cards made with my Zing today where I have taken Christmas words and replaced the ‘o’ with a snowflake. I have used a different snowflake for each card but they are interchangeable.

I have added all 4 card cut files at the end of the post but if you would like to create your own layered card in Make The Cut, using someones name on their Birthday perhaps, here’s how:

  1. Type your letters and use the ‘Shadow Layer’ option increasing the ‘Shadow Width’ as desired, I usually opt for a Rounded ‘Corner Join’.
  2. Repeat step 1 for more layers.
  3. To create your card base, add another ‘Shadow Layer’ then ‘Copy’ and ‘Paste in place’ to create 2 identical shapes.
  4. If you want a top folding card you need to ‘Flip’ one of these shapes and move upwards until they only slightly overlap, if you want a side folding card you need to ‘Mirror’ one of these shapes instead and move to the left until they only slightly overlap.
  5. Select both of your overlapping card base shapes and ‘Weld’.

Here are all of today’s cards:

Pic 1: Here are all of the pieces for my Ho Ho Ho card, I chose to alternate layers of red and white ColorMates Smooth & Silky cardstock and cut some white glitter card for my top layer:

Pic 2: I folded my card base and set side. I used double sided tape to adhere the larger 2 layers together then cut down some 3D foam pads to hide behind my H’s and snowflakes to give them some dimension:

Pic 3: Once my card front was assembled I added more 3D foam pads onto the reverse and placed onto my card base. As a finishing touch I popped some sparkles in the middle of the snowflakes.

All of the cards are assembled in the same way, here’s a closer look at them:

    • Thanks for your kind words Tammy, the feeling is mutual! ๐Ÿ™‚

      As for the sparkles, Kaisercraft do a line of them called โ€˜Sparkletsโ€™ and Creative Expressions have some called โ€˜Dazzlersโ€™. I not sure if you can get either of those in the US or not though but it’s worth a look ๐Ÿ™‚
