This is a fun and easy activity that is worth your time and money. The more you personalize the better! The receiver of this card will appreciate your effort. So let’s do this!
How to Create a 3D Christmas Card Design
Prepare all the materials from the list below:
Yellow, green, orange, red and white sponge paper
Colored pens or Sharpie
Short bond paper
A paper star
A small decorative paper star (such as a confetti star or a garland star)
On a piece of white paper, draw your Christmas tree pattern.
Cut your pattern.
Get your cardboard then equally fold this crosswise.
Get your white paper then measure this on the dimension of the cardboard. Be sure to leave at least 1 centimeter on all sides. Cut this and glue the white paper on the inner part of the cardboard.
Cut your green sponge in reference to your Christmas tree pattern.
Using the green sponge Christmas tree, cut the yellow sponge but make sure that this is 1 centimeter bigger than the green one. This will highlight the Christmas tree, giving it a 3D effect.
Concrete glue the yellow sponge to the green Christmas tree sponge. Afterward, fix this on the front of the card using hot glue.
Hot glue the star on top of the Christmas tree.
Cut several thin strips of yellow sponge. Then diagonally glue it across the Christmas tree. These will be the garland of the Christmas tree.
Cut several small circles from the red and yellow sponge paper. This will be the Christmas balls of the tree.
Cut a pot-shape from the orange sponge. Then cut another pot-shape from the red sponge but this one will be bigger than the orange one. Glue this together.
Put the pot-shape on the bottom of the tree. This will be the base of the tree.
Form a Santa hat from the red sponge. Also cut a white lining and a small circle, then stick it on the bottom, for the lining and the circle on top for the pompom of the hat.
Glue the Santa hat on the inner part of the card. Here we placed it on the upper right hand corner of the card.
Using your colorful pens, you can now write your holiday message inside the card.
Finally done! You can now give you card to your special someone!
You can also put your 3D Christmas card in an envelope for added excitement. Be personal as much as possible so that your personality can be seen on the card. Much better if you put and write things that come from the heart. Remember! It’s the thought that really means a lot!
