Rocking Horse Christmas Card

This card brings back those old childhood memories and was created using paper napkins but if you have fabric with rocking horse motifs, it can be used as well. Combine other elements you have to create unique Christmas cards that will be cherished.



Christmas Card - Rocking Horse Greeting Card for the Holidays
Since generations rocking horses have been traditional presents found under the Christmas tree for young children.

For this card you will need:

- paper napkin with rocking horse motif
- fusible web
- white and dark red cardstock
- blank white card
- gold metallic netting measuring about 9 x13 cm
- three fabric gold stars
- self adhesive 3-D foam pieces or foam tape
- scissors
- stick glue
- hot glue gun
- gold peel-off sticker “Merry Christmas”

Christmas Card - Rocking Horse Greeting Card for the Holidays 2


1. Follow the instructions for making paper napkin applique motifs using fusible web. The motif gets adhered to the white cardstock piece. If using fabric, the technique is the same as the technique for the napkins, except with fabric, there is no layers to remove. Let the motif cool down before continuing.
2. Cut the rocking horse exactly out.
3. Cut a piece of dark red cardstock that is smaller than the actual card and adhere it onto the white blank card.
4. Cut a piece of the gold netting out and place it over the card.
5. Hot glue the gold stars onto the card in a way that they also hold down the top of the netting. (Hot glue seems to hold the stars best onto the netting and dries instantly.)
6. Place the self adhesive 3-D foam pieces onto the back side of the horse, remove the protective paper backing and then adhere the horse onto the card. The foam tape will at the same time also hold down the netting.
