Handmade Christmas cards are such a great gift idea. Learn how easy it is to make.
I was part of the Craftaholics Homemade Gift Exchange this year and what fun this has been. If you have never joined up, you should give it a try. Not only do you get to exchange a gift with a new pen pal friend, but you also have fun with crafts. And who doesn’t this time of the year?
Your gift had to be handmade, so since I love to digi scrapbook, I thought I would make Pat (my new digi friend from afar) some Christmas note cards and a desk calendar for her to use all year.
I used some digi elements from different Christmas kits to make different types of note cards and printed on card stock. These make great gifts for a friend or to use for Christmas cards using your own pictures. I love making these for all occasions during the year. I always need note cards. I found the note card size envelopes at my local office supply store. I have also used kraft cardstock and envelopes you can find at Hobby Lobby.
I made one of these for myself this year and I know how much I love it. Just the right size too! Again I used digi elements from kits, make one for each month and cut to fit the stand-up frame. Actually, any type of frame would work here. You could make it as fancy and as much room as you have.
I hope everyone who participated in the exchange had as much fun as I did and I can’t wait to participate again. There will also be a linky party to view all of the other gifts. Click on the button below for more information.
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
