Now, I know that there are plenty of adorable and Christmas and holiday themed greeting cards out there to buy in stores, but there’s just something I find so satisfying about making and sending my own instead. That’s why I’ve made so many different kinds this year! In fact, I’ve had so much fun making my own Christmas cards that I decided to outline how I did one of my very favourite designs for others to see too.
Check out these step by step instructions complete with photos! If you’d rather follow along with a video tutorial instead of written words, scroll to the bottom of this post to find just what you’re looking for.
For this project, you’ll need:
- White cardstock
- Three types of decor paper (gold, bronze, and patterned)
- A glue stick
- Christmas stickers
Gather your materials!
Turn your white cardstock landscape and fold it end to end horizontally so its side edges line up. Crease the folded end and then unfold it and cut straight along the crease to make two even halves. Set one half aside.
With your other half of white cardstock, make the base of your Christmas card. Orient the piece landscape again and fold it side to side once more, matching its edge evenly and creasing it. This time you will not cut the card; this is simply where your card will open and close.
