Learn how to make a fun and interactive holiday card this season with my new SVG cut file for a Christmas Cottage Pull Card!
It’s the tenth day of a Crafty Christmas! Time for a fun new SVG cut file – a Christmas Cottage Pull Card! One of my favorite things to craft with my Cricut Explore is interactive cards. I really love trying to figure out the pattern and the mechanics of each card and then bringing them to life with my cutting machine.
This Christmas Cottage Pull Card is my newest interactive card, and you can grab the SVG cut file from my Designing Cheerfully Etsy shop. It would make the sweetest holiday card for someone special!
The roof of the card pulls up to reveal a secret message or a surprise through the window. I created a few different versions of this card, all using the same cut file, and they all turned out so cute!
This first card was created with the Echo Park Paper collection “Merry and Bright“. Santa is cheerfully waving from inside the Christmas cottage. When you pull the roof up, dozens of colorful presents are revealed along with a fun Christmas message, “Making Spirits Bright”.
Below you can see another card I created with the SVG cut file, this time using the “A Cozy Christmas” collection, also from Echo Park Paper. This card has a different vibe than the first and is more focused on being at home for the holidays. I love the snow boots sitting outside and how warm the cozy fireplace looks peeking through the window. The “A Cozy Christmas” paper collection includes paper with 4×4 journaling cards, perfect for adding to the back of the cottage.
The SVG cut file also comes with the option of having your cutting machine draw a tree on the insert. With this option, you don’t need to find cute stickers or paper for the insert. Simply color in the tree with markers or colored pencils after your cutting machine draws the tree! The “Merry Christmas” message is hidden, until the the insert is pulled up.
The card is made from several layers of paper so it is a thick card. It fits a 5″ x 7″ envelope. It uses a piece of clear craft plastic behind the window to ensure the insert slides out easily without getting stuck on anything – like decorative stickers!
The roof is attached with foam tape, giving it some really nice dimension and also allowing the roof to not get stuck while raising the roof up and down. You can check out a complete supply list in the Etsy listing, and you’ll find affiliate links to the supplies I used below.
Tomorrow is already day 11 of the series! More crafty Christmas fun coming your way! If you love making handmade cards, I have a lot of great tutorials :)
