It's time to send out those holiday greetings! Christmas is being counted down by many small children and many people with shopping lists that have not been finished yet! Cards are a wonderful way for people of all ages to say I love you this holiday season. Materials do not have to be fancy or complex. So here are 3 different designs for you to enjoy!
Cardstock in a few colors. I used red and white.
White craft glue
A few buttons
A bit of pretty scrapbooking paper or wrapping paper
A few jewels!
Ornaments hanging with bows card.
Fold your cardstock in half. Select your jewels and glue them in place. Using a black Sharpie draw a line straight up from your jewel to the top of the paper. Do this for each jewel. Draw a bow on the line. I did add a few silver stars that I had here in the shop and then wrote Merry Christmas!
Could not be easier! Fold your cardstock in half. Make 3 large H's on the card front. Next to each H add a pretty button! Ho Ho Ho!
Ornaments with Glitter Tops
Fold your cardstock in half. Cut out 3 circles of pretty paper. Glue in place. Using your glue draw a small square on top of each ornament. Sprinkle glitter.
Fast, fun, and festive! These handmade cards are sure to bring a smile to whoever is lucky enough to receive such a gift!
