Christmas Cards and a free template

I have been making a few cards for Christmas but need to get busy as there are so many to do and other things needing attention! I entered two cards on SVG CUTS Christmas Challenge and made a couple of others. I wanted to learn to make a gate fold card but all the tutorials I found were for hand cutting and scoring. OK I must be lazy, I want to make it in MTC and let my E cut it out! Oh and I don't have a scor pal or other scoring/measuring tool. So I got busy in MTC and created it. I have a link below the pictures of my gate fold card if you would like to download my template.
Here is a picture of the gate fold card I made. I used these great reindeer from SVG Cuts
The front

And the inside

Here are some Christmas cards I made. The first two were made using files from SVG Cuts
The night before Christmas conjures up so many memories of putting toys together late into the night.
But we always survive it and the kids get those toys on Christmas morning!

I love spinner cards!
And pop up word cards!! So I got two of my favorites in this one!

This cute coloring page made a great digi stamp. Diamond stickles on the roof, windowsill and tree. Holly stickles on the tree!


  1. What a perfect little card with the children looking out the window...I'm loving the others too when I saw them on the challenge. You have done a great job catching Christmas moments on your cards.
