Santa’s Ride – Wiper Card

Santa’s Ride – Wiper Card


I saw this sheet of patterned paper of a snowy night scene, and I immediately thought it needed Santa flying over head!  I added the moon with Santa in his sleigh to the pop-up mechanism tucked inside the 5″ x 7″ double z-fold card base to create a wiper card.  When the card is “opened” Santa appears with the moon.


This 12″ x 12″ paper was in the “Evergreen Cabin” Paper Pad by Craft Smart (at Michaels).


The greeting is the Festive Mini Expressions Stacked Merry Christmas (CEDME014) by Creative Expressions.  The Santa die cut was a portion of the “Ho Ho Ho Square” (#590-ZZ) from Impression Obsessions.  (I cut off the Santa and two reindeer from the rest of the die cut.)

Ho Ho Ho Square die

To make the 5″ x 7″ double z-fold card base, I started with an 8″ x 7″ panel (from the top of the patterned paper) and scored it at 5″ and 6 1/2″.  The shorter panel (from the bottom of the patterned paper) was 8″ x 3 3/4″ scored at 1 1/2″ and 3″.  I previously made an A2 size wiper card and included instructions on how to make it in that post.  This card is made the same way but with larger panels.  The wiper/pop-up panel started out as a rectangle (same as in my instructions), but I added the circle die cut to it and trimmed the part of the rectangle that was showing around the circle.

There is plenty of room on the back for a stamped or handwritten message.  This card folds flat for mailing.


Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. This is so fun and gorgeous! What a wonderful little Christmas village scene and I love how Santa has just visited too! And, the fold is so fantastic. I cannot imagine how long this must have taken you. Once again you have outdone yourself with this awesome design.
