I have been hand making my Christmas cards for a long time, long before I got my Silhouette Cameo. If you have time you might want to visit my other blog Ashbee Design and check out the post I did several years back showcasing three decades of handmade cards.
My Silhouette changed the nature of my cards and ideas that I had only dreamed about became a reality. I finished a design for 2014 this week and it is definitely something you need a cutting machine for, especially if you are planning to make 70!
This designed is constructed from one piece of 8.5 x 11 card stock folded into a 3d rectangle for display. It can be folded flat to fit in a standard 6 x 9" pamphlet envelope for mailing. It is also sized so an LED tea light can be placed inside. The village takes on an inner glow.
The card can also be made entirely from white card stock. The LED has a much stronger effect in this application.
There is a complete tutorial for assembly of this card located in the tutorials area of this site here.
