How to craft a Christmas Message Reveal Card
Crafters of all abilities will be able to create these delightful cards that are sure to raise a smile for the holiday season.
Just follow these step-by-step instructions, each set will also include a comprehensive how-to guide!
- Take a piece of 300gsm card and die cut the largest die from your set
- Fold along the created score line to form the card base. The full shape is the back of the card and the shorter shape is the card front
- Take the pocket die from your set and die cut a pocket panel from card.
- Fold along the score lines to create three tabs. Use the tabs to secure the pocket onto the reverse side of the card front.
- Select the co-ordinating die to match the top section of the main shape. Die cut from 300gsm cardstock.
- Create the hidden message pane by cutting piece of cardstock that will fit inside the pocket created in step 4 and is tall enough to attach to the piece from step 5.
- Add your message to the hidden message panel and adhere it to the reverse side of the main shape from step 5. Ensure the section will sit nicely on top of the card front.
