Don’t worry, it’s natural.

Make a Christmas Card in 5 Minutes
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Pretty Peacock- 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″, scrap
- Basic White – two pieces 4″ x 5 1/4″, scrap
- Snowflake Magic Specialty DSP – 3 3/4″ x 5″
- Iridescent Ribbon – about 3″
Let’s Make It!
- Fold the Pretty Peacock card base and adhere the Basic White panel on the front. Glue the inside panel in as well.
- Now fold your ribbon in half and stick it to itself with a glue dot.Then adhere it to the bottom right of he card with another glue dot.
- Stamp greeting onto the scrap of Basic White with Pretty Peacock ink. Stamp the branch in Lost Lagoon twice, no re-inking for the 2nd stamp. Punch out the words with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.
- Punch out the Handmade Tag from Pretty Peacock and glue the greeting to it. Add dimensionals to the back. Remove the backings and adhere over the top of the ribbon so the ribbon extends to the left of the greeting.
- Add a Flat Pearl on the top left of the sentiment to embellish.
