Sending holiday cards soon? We created these papercut woodland holiday cards to match our adorable papercut woodland ornaments. There are two designs for you to use—a fox in front of a mountain and a squirrel on a tree branch. They aren’t overly Christmasy, so if you’ve already sent off your cards, you could use these for another holiday, a birthday, or just because!

If you don’t have a ton of time (or money) to spend on holiday cards, this papercut craft is a great alternative. They are really quick and easy to make with the help of your cutting machine. And the cost of paper and envelopes is a lot more affordable as well. 

Spread a Little Whimsy

For our papercut woodland holiday cards, we used three new Curious Metallic colors (all linked below). If you prefer a different color, or you already have some paper on hand that you want to use, go for it! Once you have all your tools and materials ready, download the SVG file at the end of this post. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can always print the PDF template and cut this pattern out with a craft knife. 

Once your pattern is cut, use an adhesive dot roller or double-stick tape to adhere the layers together.  We tacked the center layer to the first but left the inside layer unglued. Finish with twine or ribbon if you wish!  The finished size fits into an A2 size envelope.

And there you have it! No need to stress about holiday cards this year when you have a simple craft like this one. For more fun seasonal crafts, browse all of our holiday ideas. And stay tuned for a couple more seasonal projects coming up!
