DAY 22! - Christmas Cards

By 17:00 ,



Every year I seem to spend various amounts of money buying Christmas cards for people and always end up with far to many cards left over at the end which I can never end up finding the next year. I also find that store bought cards aren't as personal as I would like them to be. For this reason I have decided that this year I'm going to make my own cards. As I've never done this before I thought it would be a nice DIY challenge. I thought I would share with you my favourite card design and how to recreate it yourself.

This design is probably my favourite design of the two as it is easy to make and looks like alot of effort has gone into it!

You will need:
Christmassy decorations (optional)
tissue paper

The first step is to choose the colour card you want to use for your card, this will act as the background for the snowmen.

The next step is to cut out two snowman shapes out of white paper or foam, I used pre-cut shapes from a Christmas decoration pack I had found.

Once you have your snowmen you will want to decorate them! This is the fun part! For this part you can either choose to colour in your snowmen or you can use any bits and bobs you have lying around the house.

I decided to use tissue paper for the hats, left over ribbon for the scarves and stickers for the buttons, eyes and nose.

I then decided to add some snowflake gems I had so it looked like snow!

The last step was to add the letters to the bottom of the card to spell out Merry Christmas! This is an optional step as you could add some snow at the bottom instead!

Here is what my finished card looked like!

Have an amazing day/night and I'll see you tomorrow for Blogmas Day 23!
