How to make a neverending card
You Will Need
- Free snow scene printables
- White card
- Scoreboard and bone folder
- Square nesting dies (optional)
- Cloud dies (optional)
Cut four 7.5x15cm pieces of white card. Score horizontally at 3.5cm from both ends. Turn the pieces of card 90 degrees then score vertically at the centre point to the horizontal score line.
Use the card pieces to make a layered square – one layer with score lines at the sides, one with score lines at the top and bottom. Secure with double-sided tape in each corner of the square.
Open the card by bending back the two front panels. Use a bone folder (or another hard object like a ruler) to flatten the score lines. Repeat this process as you open out the card panels two more times.
Turn the card so the scored panels are at the sides. Cut squares of stripy paper to fit each panel and embellish with cut-out printables plus die-cut birch trees and cloud borders. Affix onto the card.
Flip over the front panels, to reveal the blank section inside. Cut squares in red patterned paper, to fit each corner panel and the two central panels. Embellish the panels.
Fold back the side sections. Adhere snowflake paper onto the side panels. Add a village scene to one red paper square, and Santa’s sleigh to another, then adhere to the central card panels.
Flip over the front panels of the card. Cut four rectangles from snowflake paper and affix to the top and bottom panels. Add a snowman and sentiment to squares of stripy paper then affix. As all the card faces are decorated, simply write your greeting onto a sentiment tag and affix!
