Easy Christmas Card Idea

| November 23, 2012 | 11 Comments

I like to make my own Christmas Cards each year. And with the arrival of kids, it had to feature photos too. So I always try and come up with a design, that is easy to repeat for a large amount of cards. So if you are looking for an easy Christmas Card idea, you may like this!

(Please note, the image dates from my Pre Blogging days.. so not as good as normally!) 

 Christmas Card Ideas

I made this card a few years ago and ADORE it. One of my favourite to date.

  1. Cut card down to size (I upcycled some old  blue back covers of a work brochures)
  2. Find a cute card of your child that looks good in Black & White. Print on ordinary paper.
  3. Cut out white paper antlers and red noses (I cut out six layers of paper at a time) – that way you are only printing in black and white and not colour… you could of course decorate your photo in a programme like PicMonkey and then print in colour.. but this is cuter and cheaper!)
  4. Glue on your photos and Rudolph adornments. Done!

Happy Christmas Card Making!! (and check out these Simple Christmas Cards that Kids can make).

  1. I followed your link from Twitter, I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t this – but this is super duper cute! Such a lovely and original idea. I can just imagine how much granny and grandpa would love this!

    That is absolutely marvellous! I’ve been nagging Husband to buy me a printer and I’m going to set the nagging to overdrive now, I’m missing out on all of these great ideas without one!

    oh cute : )
    we’ve always done a similar thing since our son was born, so now we have a whole catalogue of strange xmas cards for him to look back on when he’s older! My fave was one when he was about 2 and we put him in the middle of loads of wintery animals, aahhhhh : ) x
