Ooh I am excited about this mini series I have for you t his next 10 days!!! 10 Super Simple Christmas Card Designs are heading your way! I created this super simple series for anyone that has to make cards “in bulk”. My kids LOVE giving cards to ALL their classmates for example.. and these super simple cards are a great way to make a whole set of them quickly and easily. Some of the designs coming, would also be perfect as “thank you cards” after Christmas! First up.. the Super Simple Santa Christmas Card Design!
Super Simple Santa Card – Materials
- red cards (either pre folded A6 cards, or cut down red card to the size you want.. an A4 sheet of red card, can make two cards for you)
- black paper
- yellow paper (you won’t need much!)
- glue stick
How to make a Simple Santa Card Tutorial
Once again this Christmas Card Design series is a VIDEO tutorial series.. but I have added some short step by step descriptions for you below!

In the video I mention my new Paper Projects Book – the designed shared here today, works really well for our little DIY gift bags shared inside this book!
Step by Step Easy Santa Card Design instructions:
As mentioned, we used some prefolded A6 cards in red. But you can make your own card and also make these cards in ANY size or shape (e.g. a square Santa Card would look fabulous too). If you have “standard” card, you can simply fold it in half to make a greeting card base.
Cut out a fat strip of black paper – that is WIDER than the card itself – you will then need to trim off a black square from this strip of the centre.
In our case the paper is approximatel 3cm wide, and 15cm long.
The square I cut off is 3cm x 3cm.
Now cut a yellow square that is bigger than the black one. I cut one approximately 4cm x 4cm.
Assembling your super simple Santa Christmas card design
Glue down your large black strip – it is ok if it overhangs the sides. You can trim these off.
Then glue the yellow square in the centre.
Now place the black smaller square in the middle.
FINISHED. That took less than 2min to make. If making in bulk, you can get these made even quicker!
