I love those cards you can display on the mantel or a shelf. The 3D cards are not only the best for displaying they are the best to make. At least I think they are.     12 Cards of Christmas – Z Fold Make sure to use a double sided cardstock for this card because both sides of it will be seen. You will not be able to use a regular card because this card’s initial measurements require a 12×12 cardstock and for you to cut the card from scratch. It’s much easier than you think! Just follow the step by step video to find out how to create it. You’ll be surprised how easy and fast it is. If you want a smaller card cut a smaller …

So today’s card is: 12 Cards of Christmas – Folded Christmas Tree card. This card is really fast and easy to make and even suitable for kids.     12 Cards of Christmas – Folded Christmas Tree You will need a circle cutter. There are many tools out there for cutting circles. I’m still using the Coluzzle which doesn’t exist anymore.
