Hi Friends! The holidays are right around the corner! I have always wanted to make my own cards but once the holidays start I often do not have time to finish. So starting early this year, I came up with a couple of easy DIY Christmas cards to pull off!
- David Tutera Patterned Kraft Cards
- Core’dinations Blank Gift Tags
- Green & White Striped Washi Tape
- Calligraphy Pen
- Red Ribbon
This card was so simple to make! I’ve been studying calligraphy for a few months now and thought this would be the perfect addition to my DIY Christmas cards. I wrote the words Merry Christmas with black ink on a simple blank white tag. At the end of the tag, I put a small strip of washi tape to give it a little decoration. I tied a red ribbon to the tag and glued the tag to the card. That’s it! The David Tutera patterned kraft cards is what really makes this such an easy project! I love all the designs in the card pack and it goes so well with the white tag!
Now, it’s onto this adorable “Merry & Bright” Rudolph card.
- Kraft Cards
- White Cardstock
- Silhouette Machine
- Deer Silhouette File
- Black Polka Dot Washi Tape
- Red Ribbon
- Small Glitter Pom Poms
For this card, I did receive a little help from my Silhouette machine! I fell in love with a cute journaling card from their online store. Using that deer, I centered my kraft card on my Silhouette mat and cut the image out. I glued white cardstock for the inside of the card. For my banner, I used the Silhouette’s print and cut feature. Using one of my favorite fonts, I wrote out “Merry & Bright” in text. I chose a banner that had a very primitive feel to it (I didn’t want straight lines) and printed out the text and Silhouette registration marks on my printer and then ran that paper through my Silhouette machine for it to cut my banner. To decorate the card, I ran a stripe of black polka dot washi tape to the side followed by some red ribbon. I glued a red glittery pom pom to the deer’s nose and I was done!
I love how these DIY Christmas cards turned out and I love that they really took me no time at all to create!!
