Hello! Time is flying away, and now there are only 2 days at Christmas… Today I’ve finished Christmas’ cards, and I want to show you my idea for this year: I made some photos to explain better. Like I said before, handmade Christmas’ Card are always the most appreciated. First of all, you need some cardboards: red, green, blue and a white one. To realize it, of course, scissors and glue, a black marker pen, and many coloured drawing pens.
This year I made a nice drawing of a Santa with his reindeer dragging the sleigh. I coloured the sketch with red drawing pen , of course, for Santas’ clothes, and two tones of green for the sleigh and the writing. I curved out the drawing and I pasted it on a red card. (A4 dimensions, folded in half) After that, I take a photo of Davide and me, and I printed it, and I cutted off our heads (said in this way, it sounds a bit “gloomy”): I pasted the “heads” on the Santas’ clothes. Inside, as you can see, I added a white card for writing my Christmas message, and to garnish it, I drawed two bay leaves with some red berries.
For the final touch, i added a shaped blue cardboard, to make a starry night sky. (or a snowy sky, if you prefere).
It’s a very simple idea, if you like to cut and paste and drawing something on your own.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!Cris
Merry Christmas! What a beautiful card! Thanks for sharing your tips 🙂
Thank you Ada!I really enjoy making this kind of tips 🙂 Happy Holiday!Cris
This is a great idea, Cris! So cute! You are very artistic. How many cards did you make? Very pretty. Happy Christmas! Shanna
Hi Shanna, how are you? I’m still in a food coma, i was with my family and friends in the past few days, so I had no time to write a single word for my blog. Did you make some special dinner in the meanwhile?
I’m glad that you liked it; Davide really appreciated this card.
Of this type I made a single one, for my friends I made a card shaped like a Christmas’ ball all decorated, with a message inside. I think it was pretty. Have a great day! Xoxo Cris
Cris – A food coma. Yes, I hear you! I ate so many goodies over the holidays! 🙂 Greg is at the hospital doing a long surgery… and I suppose it is a great day to go shopping with the little ones. I hope you post about all of your delicious meal! Best – Shanna
Hi Shanna, I hope that you enjoyed your shopping with the kids 🙂
