Christmas Designing at last!

Christmas season starts earlier for designers. We need to have new ideas ready before crafters want to start their crafting season. This week I introduced the first of my 2019 Christmas projects. It is a new addition to my zig zag card series themed for the holidays. Check out the new Gingerbread House Zig Zag Card…..

I have taken that which I have learned from all the easier zig-zag designs and applied it to this new version. This time round many of the details (the frosting layer) are connected together into one piece. It is much quicker to glue on a single complex piece than many tiny little pieces. To the right is a sample. This is the main wall and its frosting details. The details are combined into 4 pieces which can be quickly adhered using spray glue.

Additionally I have provide options for you with all the candy details. You can create them from tiny paper parts. It looks great but takes time. Or you can use the Print and Cut feature of your machine and have these details printed and then cut. Time savings is huge. If you are making one or two cards it doesn’t matter. But if you want to make 20 it makes huge difference.

  • The cutting file for this design is located here.

  • The online tutorial is here. Yes there is a video tutorial for the assembly.

The third additions is now I have made an envelope template that works for all of my zig zag cards. This has always been designed to fit in a standard 6 x 9” booklet envelope available from Amazon. But people have requested an envelope so they can make a custom envelope with high quality card stock.
