Say thank you with this Christmas thank you card! The colors say “Christmas”, the layout is fun and it’s quick and easy to put together. What more could you ask for?
A few tips for making this card…
To quickly and easily make banner ends use a square punch! My go-to is a 1″ Square Punch. Just slide your paper strip into the punch and line up so you’re punching out a triangle. Cut your strip of paper longer than you need it to be. Once you have the nice banner end you want, you can trim the strip down to size.
If you don’t have a square punch, here are more tips for cutting even banner ends.
It’s easy to emboss just part of your card! Slide your card front into the embossing folder and line it up where you want it. Fold the back of the card around the back of the folder. Open up both tabs of the Multi-Purpose Platform to account for the extra thickness the back of the card gives. Run through your Big Shot and be amazed!

Oh, my word. I just received this card in today’s mail. I cannot express how touched I am. It came at such a perfect time and is just exquisite. I am coveting your chevron embossing folder now….thank you Jessica. You are a total doll.
Thank you for the information now I might not break my folders
Jessica, the stamp is a digitalization download, also the paper, which means I don’t need the stamp? I’m making the thank you cards for Xmas, thanks.
I meant I don’t need the ink?
I had an actual stamp that I used when I made these cards, and and actual pre-printed paper. Now they are both only available as digital downloads so that you could design the cards and then print them instead of stamping.
I have a cuddle bug and can’t run my cards through like that. I have to make my front piece of the card separate and glue it on another card. Any suggestions.
I can do part of the side of the card and top or bottom for a little variation.
You are much more experienced than I . Thank you for any suggestions.
did anybody give you a good solution for this? I too own a cuddly bug
Hi Nancy, Because of the smaller opening this may not work for the CuttleBug. You may find it easier to just emboss a piece of card stock and adhere it to the front of your card. Thanks for asking!
I use my Cuttlebug to do this. Put the paper in the “usual” way, but leave some of the bottom hanging out. DON’T fold it! Run thru your Cuttlebug as usual. Taa-daa!
Merci beaucoup, je n’ai jamais fait de carte mais j’ai l’intention d’en faire pour les prochains anniversaires dans ma famille et amis. Merci pour l’initiation. Vous faites de jolies cartes, félicitation !
Bye-bye Monique, Qc.
Thank you, Monique. I hope you enjoy making cards for your friends and family!
I’ve done this with my Cuttlebug! I put the paper in the embossing folder the “right” way, and let the bottom part hang out.
Thanks for sharing Louise!
