Let your loved ones know that you are thinking of them by sending beautiful handmade Christmas cards! It is personal, beautiful and so easy!
Christmas is coming closer and probably not all of your friends and family live close by so that you can hand over presents or cards personally. Send them handmade Christmas cards. With this tutorial, you can decide how much time you want to put in and how much you want to design it yourself.
Next Friday I will post a tutorial and templates for three different Christmas baubles cards. They are so cute, check them out.
There are three options:
Use the template and
1. choose your own beautiful paper for the trees or
3. if you don’t have a lot of time just print the template “ready to print Christmas tree cards“, cut around the lines and *Badaboom* ready are your Christmas cards!
READY TO PRINT CHRISTMAS TREE CARDS
Download and print the cards (here) and cut out your hand designed watercolour Christmas cards.
MAKE YOUR OWN CHRISTMAS TREE CARDS
- template (download it here)
- thick paper/cardboard
- beautiful paper for the tree
some options: print my watercolour design: blue or green, make your own watercolour design, white paper on brown cardboard, gold foil
- glue stick for paper
1 – Print the template on thick paper or thin cardboard. Choose a light till medium colour so you are able to see the lines. Cut out the cards and the tree templates.
2 – Place the tree templates on the beautiful paper and trace them. Cut out the trees.
3 – To fold the cards easily, place the ruler on the card (aligned with the marks) and scratch along with closed scissors. The card will fold much easier along the scratch.
4 – Arrange the trees on the card and glue them onto the card. Done.
Now you have some tough decisions to make. What colour for the card? What colours for the trees? Watercolour design or plain? And how many trees?
Have fun. Experiment. It will look beautiful.
Or just be lazy and print the already finished cards. Download them here.
