Seasons Greetings House Card

By Benetta 221 118

Make this Christmas card to bring Seasons Greetings from your house to a neighbor's house, and spread some Christmas cheer.

Finished house card.

Approximate Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 1 card

Supplies:

  • 1 pattern of house
  • tracing paper and pencil
  • 1 in 11.7 x 8.3 (A4) sheet of pink patterned cardstock
  • 1 in 5 x 5 black cardstock
  • 1 in 5 x 3 white corrugated cardstock
  • 1 leftover piece of green cardstock
  • 4 paper flowers
  • 6 pearl heart pony beads
  • 8 small blue flat-sided rhinestone beads
  • 4 small red flat-sided rhinestone beads
  • silver thread
  • Foilart Super-tack glue pen
  • pink craft foil
  • tree-shaped paper punch
  • craft glue
  • scissors
  • stanley knife (utility knife)
  • ruler
  • 1 sheet of ordinary white printer paper

see http://www.smokymountaincraftsupplies.com/pony-beads-heartpearl.html for a possible supplier of pony beads

Steps:

  1. Trace and cut the house from the pink patterned card stock.
  2. Template
  3. Score the house length-wise and with the fold at the top, cut off any protruding edges, so that the house will look neat.
  4. Cut out all the windows, and cut open the door and fold it back, so that the door will stand slightly ajar.
  5. Pattern cut from pink paper
  6. Glue the black cardboard to the back of the front of the house, and cut off any protruding edges.
  7. Glue black paper to back side of house.
  8. Glue the silver thread to the top of the roof ~ make a wiggly pattern. This will be the "electrical cord" from which the Christmas lights will hang.
  9. Use the corrugated cardboard to add a roof to the front of the house, and cut off any protruding edges.
  10. Corrugated paper roof added.
  11. Glue the rhinestone beads in place to complete the string of Christmas lights.
  12. Christmas lights added.
  13. Glue the paper flowers at the bottom of the top windows.
  14. Use the tree punch and punch out five Christmas trees.
  15. Glue one tree to the door, and four to the roof of the house.
  16. Use Super-tack glue to add some detail to the trees.
  17. Allow the Super-tack glue to dry for about 10 minutes. When the glue is wet, it is blue, but when it is dry it becomes transparent.
  18. Press foil down on the glue. Remember that, of course - the pink side of the foil must be on top.
  19. Rub the foil over the areas where you have added glue with the Super-tack glue pen.
  20. Carefully lift the foil. On the areas where you have added glue with the Super-tack pen, some of the foil will stay behind, thereby highlighting certain areas of the trees.
  21. Use the pearl heart pony beads to add window sills to the bottom windows.
  22. Space and print the following onto the white printer paper:
    Seasons Greetings from our house to yours.
  23. Glue the message to the inside of the card.

Tip: Personalizing Ornament Christmas Cards

By Clynn Altemus 30 67

Personalized family Christmas cards can be made at home. Find a card, old or new, which has large ornaments on the front - at least as many ornaments as members of the family.

Get snapshots of each member of the family which can be cut to fit the different ornaments, circles or ovals. Paste the photos on the ornaments. If you are using an old card which has a signature on the inside, that will have to be covered.

If you want to write your own message for the inside of the card, write your message and glue it over the existing message and signature. If each card is to have a separate hand-written message, cover the existing message an signature with a plain piece of paper.

Next, take this to Office Max, Kinko's, or somewhere where you can get copies made. Unfold the card completely, and have it copied (as many copies as you desire) on either 18 or 20 pound paper, not card stock. The copies should be such that you can have a card by making the two folds as was in the original card. (Card will be 4 1/4 x 5 1/2)

There would be one fold if you used the large 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 card. If you use this size card the paper can be a little heavier. You will need to buy envelopes of the proper size.

You have your cards individualized with photos (and message, if desired). All you have to do is fold the cards in the same way the original card was folded.

Tip: Homemade Holiday Cards

By Vickie 1

I buy plain cards and envelopes and a stamp for my holiday cards. I use clear fixative on the stamp, stamp the card, sprinkle with glitter (usually silver) and then use a heat gun to set the design. I use a smaller stamp and do the same thing on the envelope. I have used a Victorian house stamp, a Nativity stamp, holly, garland, etc. and they all turn out very nice and professional looking. Everyone always enjoys getting these 'high-end' homemade cards! Give it a try - see what you think!

Tip: Handmade Christmas Cards as Gift

By grandmafudge 5 8

My daughter-in-law is very gifted in creating beautiful scrapbooks and greeting cards, so every year for my birthday, which happens to fall in November, I receive a lovely array of handmade greeting cards including a minimum of 20 Christmas cards (she always asks how many I need). She creates the outside of the card and then I create my own Christmas message and attach it to the inside of the card.

These cards have become a tradition with me and my family. Everyone loves to receive a Christmas card that is so personalized and I get to share a wonderful bond with my daughter-in-law. This is also very frugal as the cards serve as a birthday gift for me and double as a beautiful Christmas message for the people I love. Thankfully handmade gifts are coming back in style!

Tip: Make Your Own Christmas Cards

By Peggy 1

You can use any paper that you have on hand, like scrap paper, construction paper, etc. Cut and fold the paper so it will fit into an envelope. Decorate the outside of the card with stamps or pictures from old Christmas cards that have been sent to you. On the inside write, type or stamp your message.

For my close friends, I put a family picture on the inside with a "Merry Christmas" stamp. You can make them as simple or as fancy as you like. Buy a box of envelopes and there you go!

Tip: A Little "Something" in Christmas Cards

By Paula 14 328

I don't do much gift giving at the holidays, but I do like to send out Christmas cards and enclose a little "something" inside the card. I have a Cheery Reindeer word-find that I copied out of an old magazine and I am going to enclose that inside some cards. I also have printed off an easy recipe for Breakfast Cheese Danish and I used a recipe card with a gingerbread man and candies on it that I got for free from http://www.alenkasprintables.com;

That recipe is going into the cards that I send to family and friends that like to bake. For my book reading friends, I found some thin, satin bookmarks to slip inside their cards. I like to add little surprises to the cards and these items are so small that they don't add to the weight or change the amount of postage needed.

Tip: Making Christmas Cards With Family

I love to involve my children in our homemade cards and gifts that we give away. Christmas cards are a family project. Last year we made the cover of the card like Eric Carle. My children painted on tissue paper using greens, white, gray and silver. My oldest taught the younger the art technique she learned at school. We then cut out tree shapes and glued them to the front of the cover. They turned out darling and received many compliments.

Homemade Christmas Cards With Kids Artwork

Last year we made wonderful, meaningful and inexpensive Christmas cards. I saved up my then 2 year olds finger paintings throughout October and November and then cut them into smaller rectangles using a decorative scissors and then glued them to the front of plain cards. You can get a large pack of plain cards and envelopes at Michael's Craft store pretty cheaply. I then let my little girls use a glue stick to put glue and glitter on the fronts. They turned out so cute and so many people commented on how they made them smile.

RE: Homemade Christmas Cards

Find some Christmas material with large patterns such as gingerbread men, snowflakes, bells, etc. Cut around the item, and using scrapbooking glue, paste it to card-stock. You could also just make a pattern of the size of the front of your card and cut a piece of material to fit. I did this with Halloween cards one year and it was lots of fun. You have to be careful of your cards curling up so maybe place under something heavy after the glue dries. (12/06/2005)

RE: Homemade Christmas Cards

My college daughter used paper bags she got from the grocery store and created her own.

You can get plenty of pictures from magazines that someone might toss, use the letters for title pages, etc. You can even get pictures from the computer to print out, and don't feel bad if you can only print in black and white, as many people enjoy black and white photo's.
You could also make black and white photo's from a time past that you would want on your card(s).

One year we took all our Christmas cards, and made new ones with card stock, paper bags, etc.

Starting this year, save fun pictures from magazines, advertisements, and cards that you receive. Then turn them into magic. You could also check out your dollar stores, craft stores, etc. throughout the year and pick up little things that you can use to embellish them. Ribbon on spools at great clearance prices add a lot of charm as well.

To make an envelope, just take one the size you would want to use, open it up and make a pattern from it. Keep the pattern for future use.

Enjoy! (12/06/2005)

RE: Homemade Christmas Cards

I have been doing this for years now. I save my cards & my kids give me theirs. When you get a card most of the time the people don't write on the side with the picture, so you cut it in half & use it. Ok now you can put double sided tape around the whole card & then you put in about 1/2 in lace on top of the tape. The other way is you punch holes around the card then you single crochet around it. You can do this all year around. It saves a lot i haven't brought any cards in 6 - 7 years now. Have fun. (12/07/2005)

RE: Homemade Christmas Cards

I have been making cards for years and every one loves them in fact a few of my cards have been framed and put in places of honor in my friends homes. Some of them have been hand painted, you can look at some of Donna Dewberry's snowmen, it was very easy. She also paints a teddy bear that is simple. Last year I took muslin and ironed fusable web on it, cut out snowmen took chalk and lightly colored the edges some in blue and some in brown. Cut felt hats and and scarves and glued the parts on a card. I made faces with permanent marker. They were adorable. Any of the cards I make using material I always back the material with fusable web to make gluing it easier. (11/29/2006)
