How to Make an Arch Shaped Christmas Card

Take your standard A2 card to the next level by creating a beautiful arched card base for your next handmade card project!

Today we have an amazing project from the talented Kendra Sand. We love her knack for taking cards to the next level with interesting shapes, designs and folds that set her projects apart. This project is so fun and we can’t wait to show it off. The newly release ‘5715D Stacked Arches Die‘ are great to use to make shaped cards, so follow along as Kendra gives us the steps to recreate this arch shaped Christmas card.

How to Make an Arch Shaped Christmas Card

How to make this card:

  • Kendra started her card by creating an A2 sized card base. Place the die cut largest arch from ‘5715D Stacked Arches Die‘ slightly over the fold and run through your die cutting machine a few times.
  • Die cut largest arch from ‘5715D Stacked Arches Die‘ from tree paper from the ‘Wintery Woodlands 6×6 Paper Pad‘. Adhere to card base.
  • Die cut smallest scallop from ‘5500-2D Outside Scallop Frame Die‘ from gold glittery paper. (Keep the inner gold rectangle from the inside of the scallop) Die cut same scallop from a piece of white and turquoise stripe paper from the ‘Wintery Woodlands 6×6 Paper Pad‘. Only keeping the inner rectangle. Adhere to gold layer.
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock about 2 1/8″ x 3 1/4″ and adhere to back of above layers. Kendra did this to stabilize the piece some more. Wrap white twine three time around layers towards top of rectangle. (Between the 3rd and 4th groove in the scallop from the top) Adhere to card base with foam tape about 7/8″ from top of card.
  • Die cut the rectangle from the set from ‘5500-2D Outside scallop Frame Die‘ from white cardstock. Stamp ‘Snowy Winter Wishes’ sentiment from the ‘3366 Snowman With Presents‘ stamp set near top of rectangle. Adhere to a piece of dark teal cardstock about 1 5/8″ x 2 5/8″. Adhere to card base about 7/8″ from bottom.
  • Stamp snowman with lights from ‘3499-01 In Case You Get Cold‘ stamp set. Color with alcohol markers. Kendra used colors from the tree paper to inspire her on how she colored the image in. Die cut with coordinating die from ‘3499-01D In Case You Get Cold‘. Adhere to card base to bottom left.
  • Add a teal button with a white bow to the right of twine layers. Kendra left the twine ‘tails’ about 2 1/5″ long. Add glue and place ‘tails’ on base as you wish.
  • Stamp each snowflake from both ‘3366 Snowman With Presents‘ and ‘3499-01 In Case You Get Cold‘ in gold ink on white cardstock. Die cut with coordinating dies. Adhere to card base.
  • Finish by adding clear rhinestones.

We absolutely adore how this card turned out. Again, this trending color pallet is so fun and really pops against the typical red and green holiday cards. We love that the snowman is easy to color up due to his naturally white nature, making this a simple card to make with a big WOW outcome! Pin this project for later and be sure to follow us on Instagram for more inspiration.
