A handmade Christmas card made with snowflake stickers. Need a Christmas card? Here's how to make a personalized greeting card quick and easy. A cool Christmas card idea your friends will cherish.
It’s nice to receive a beautiful handmade Christmas card specially made for a friend.
When they open their Christmas card, their first reaction will be to put it in front of all the other cards they get, on full display, and why not.
So make that special personalized greeting card to go with that special Christmas gift basket for your family and friends.
When making a handmade Christmas card or Christmas tags, use card-stock paper measuring 12 inches square (30.5 cm square) or a big sheet of card 28 inches square, (71cm square) it’s a bit thinner but more economical and ideal if you are making more than one Christmas card.
As long as the
card you're using can stand up without falling down, you can use it.
The standard size for greeting cards is 4 3/4 inches square (12.1 cm square) or 5 3/4 inches square (14.5 cm square) But this is just a guide, you can cut any size or shapes you choose.
If you do not want to cut your own cards out but still want to do your own design on the front you can buy ready-cut cards and aperture cards (cards with small shapes cut out of the front). Use those and create your own design.
When it comes to using colors, red, white, green, gold and silver come to mind straight away. These are excellent colors to work with when making Christmas card ideas and Christmas tags. When making your own Christmas cards, do not use too many colors, try using one color with different shades or two colors.
The less colors the better the effect you will create, I think,
when making your handmade Christmas card.
Below is a Christmas card I made for a friend. It was very easy to make and didn't require a lot of work. So, give it a go.
To make this envelope I used thin red printed card-stock. I think it goes with the greeting card pretty good.
