This is a cool and festive "Retro Loading Screen" christmas card. It features 8-bit clip art and a retro computer font. This a perfect Christmas card for any techie.
Step 1: Supplies
Here is a list of what you will need:
Packing tape Black tape X-ACTO knife Scissors Stiff white paper A printer
OPTIONAL: Adhesive roller
Step 2: Printing and Cutting
First you will need to load your stiff paper into your printer. Once that is done, you will need to print the 3-page-PDF in this step AFTER SCALING IT DOWN TO 75%. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you do this. Most computers/laptops have a percentage scale in their print window. BE SURE THE SCALE IS SET TO 75%. After the 3 pages have printed, you will take the first one and an X-ACTO knife and begin cutting out the white rectangles in the middle of the card.
Next, you will cut around the card's border; cutting the card out. (You don't need the X-ACTO knife for this.) Be sure to cut out the little white square on the right. Then, on a blank sheet of paper you will trace the part of the card you just cut out. (It does not matter if you trace the square indent on the right or not. Either way you will eventually have to cut out a little square there anyway.) Now simply cut out the shape you made with your pencil. It should be the same size as the part of the card you printed.
