3D Cards + Caring Hearts Card Drive Info + Giveaway

Hello! Today I have a video sharing more information about the Caring Hearts Card Drive… and a couple of fun 3-D holiday cards.

Yesterday I shared information on the Caring Hearts Card Drive. However, I wanted to also share it in a video since some folks only check out my work on YouTube. 😉 So in this video, I first show how to create a 3-D card… and then I chat about the card drive.


These fun 3-D cards actually fold down to fit an A2 envelope. Nice, huh? For the nativity card, I used the Concord & 9th Holy Night Dies. You can follow the instructions in the video (and the dimensions found HERE) – it is easy! I also added clouds that I made with my fingertips and Tsukineko Delicata White Shimmer Ink. You can also see the shimmer I added to the whole card with Shimmer Spritz .


I put the card in a Simon Says Stamp Silver Envelope and stamped the matching Concord & 9th Holy Night Stamps sentiment on the flap.


In the same way, I used the Concord & 9th Christmas Cottage Dies to create another 3D card. You can find the dimensions HERE.


There is a matching Concord & 9th Christmas Cottage Stamp Set, but I decided to go for simple look without it.


If you don’t have these dies, you can try to make one on your own using border dies. But these sure make it easy!

  1. HI Jennifer! Your videos are so fun to watch. Helps getting my imagination wheels spinning. I prefer interactive, 2D, and 3D cards. I go for the WOW factor. I enjoy your inspiring videos. It takes a lot of time to make my cards but I love the response of those who receive them. Your blog offers education of other products and how they are used, so thank you for all the time you devote. Hope your day is filled with abundance of joy. ??

  2. Hi Jennifer,

    I love how clearly you explain how to design and put your cards together. In the past, I have made interactive shaker cards, waterfall cards, slider cards, and pull tab cards. It’s always fun to have movement in the card …?

  3. What cool cards! I’ve only made interactive cards with shaker, wobble, and slider elements…this 3D design is something I must try right away! Thanks so much for sharing yet another fantastic video!

  4. Hi Jennifer,
    In the 1980’s my parents once received a Christmas card that was a 3D city scene from Jerusalem. It was all white and I thought it was the neatest thing I had ever seen. So, I saved it. When I saw this beautiful I card I immediately thought of this card. I went looking for it and low and behold I actually found it. I feel blessed that I am old enough that I could actually make something that took my breath away over 30 years ago. Thank you for making this card. I know I can do this. I have been practicing on Sizzix interactives for a few years and they are cute. I just took a class with Lawn Fawn here in San Jose and got to meet Kelly. We made some darling interactive cards i.e. the oven that opens and the slider with a penny on the back where porcupine is sliding into a pile of leaves. I would never have know about all these fabulous companies if it weren’t for you. I feel like my hand is being held when you make a card and at the end I say to myself I can do this. You are truly inspiring to me.
