Cute Homemade Christmas Cards; Make a Holiday Card

Cute Homemade Christmas Cards -

Combining the stamps from Snowman Season with the Let it Snow Specialty Designer Paper makes some really cute homemade Christmas cards.

I used Real Red Card Stock to frame all the layers and highlight the bit of red in the pretty paper patterns. These adorable papers make wonderful backgrounds and is a great way to speed up your card making. If you have a lot of Christmas cards to make, this is a real time saver!

The card sentiment came from #Elfie. It's perfect because I wanted something a little smaller so it wouldn't overpower the little snowman. I stamped it in Real Red Ink.

Just a hint of color was added to the featured snowman using Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends.

I actually colored in the snowman first using my Stampin' Blends Color Lifter. Not only does it help to remove color where you don't want it, but if you use it first before applying color it will help to lighten the color you're applying.

Finally, some Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon was added to give a little sparkle, and I was done!

Here's an inexpensive holiday card design idea you can make.

The inspiration for this handmade greeting card layout came from the MojoSketch 527 shown on the right. What other cute homemade Christmas cards could you come up with to make your holiday cards this year?

  1. Hi, a newbie cardmaker here, could you tell me how you got the layers? I am not seeing that on mojo monday sketch. Thanks!

    1. Sandra, when working with a sketch it’s not required that you follow the sketch exactly, it’s just a starting point. But if you look closely at the sketch you’ll see the dimensions are given for different layers. Hope that helps.
