Quick and Easy Christmas card - Santa's Sleigh

Do you often find you have extra stamped or die cut images hanging around your table? I do all the time. In fact I have so many these day's that I actually had to get a little pot to store them all. I guess it's the scrapbooker in me that never likes to throw something away 'just in case'!!

Well today it worked in my favor as I had a few of the little reindeer stamped and die cut from the double z fold card that I had made a little while ago. I had decided they were too cute to throw out so they were sitting in my little pot and waiting to be used and they worked perfectly on today's card:

This card came together super fast and I really do love it!! There is very little prep time and the hardest part is making the rosettes, which when you get into the swing of it, really don't take that long.

The musical sheet DSP is from the annual catalogue and is called This Christmas specialty paper. It's such a gorgeous pack of paper and I just love that you get four sheets (2x of each design) so it last that little bit longer.

I have put together a video tutorial for this card which you can watch below and I have also added all the measurements too.

Thanks for popping by and remember you can shop at my store any time!!

Happy Crafting,

  1. Lovely card! Cherry Cobbler doesn't come in 12x12" format. I really wanted to try this card but your measurements threw me off. Because your converting from cm, to inches, I know it gets confusing! At least it does for me! Thank you for sharing with us! Any and all help is appreciated! I also love your Z card!

    1. Hi Gloria, sorry I confused you a little. I think the problem is that Australian A4 paper is a little longer and thinner then US paper. Our A4 is 11 3/4 long so I just trimmed it down a little to make is even when folding it in half. I have the same problem when I try to make cards with US sizing as I'm always missing 1/4 of an inch on one side :-) Hope that clears it up a little,
