Christmas Puzzle card

Updated: Jul 31, 2023

When I saw Sam Calcott make a puzzle card a few weeks ago I immediately thought of the Gina K set called Silly Season. If you are giving someone a card, they have to solve a puzzle to be able to read it has to be a lighthearted message. I have the measurements for a 5x7 and an A2 card that will fit the gnome and the tree. The nesting dies need to step down about an inch for each size. If you have the ability to cut an SVG I do have the exact one I used below for you to download. I can see a lot more puzzle cards in my future.

5x7 card base (10 x7 folded in half)
