DIY 5 Minute Christmas Card

Hello Inkredible Friends!

Who loves glimmer and glitter (the kind that does not rub off)?! I’ve got a fun sparkling DIY 5 minute Christmas card to share with you today. It would be so easy to sit down and make a bunch of these handmade Christmas cards in one sitting.

I love the Joyous Noel designer series paper used on this Christmas Card. Stampin’ Up! has the best papers for cards and scrapbook projects in my view. It’s an even better deal that the paper is double sided. Of course I’m using the side that shows the copper foil—that adds an elegant look. I paired the designer paper with the die cut deer (from the Dashing Deer bundle) cut out of the copper glimmer paper . This project makes a great card design idea for all the masculine cards too…you could easily swap out the paper the deer is cut out of, change the sentiment, and make this a thank you card or any other occasion. Dashing Deer for a dashing man!

As always I’ve got a video tutorial for you, cutting measurements, and supply list below.

Dashing Deer Card Measurements

Cut Very Vanilla Card Base at 11” x 4 1/4” and score at 5 1/2”
Cut another Very Vanilla layer at 3 3/4” x 5”
Cut a layer of Soft Suede Card stock at 2 1/2” X 3 1/4”
Cut a piece of designer or scrapbook paper at 2 1/4” X 3”


1) Take the Very Vanilla layer and swipe the embossing buddy onto the lower half of the card. Ink your stamp in versamark and stamp in the bottom left corner of the panel. Cover with copper embossing powder and heat set with the Stampin’ Up! heat tool.

2) Take the die from the Dashing Deer bundle and cut out using the Big Shot on Copper Glimmer paper.

3) Adhere the designer paper to the Soft Suede layer and then adhere that to the card front above the sentiment but centered from left to right.

4) Add dimensionals and mini-dimensionals to the back of the deer and place on the card front where desired.
