Make Custom Holiday Cards With Your Family (Scrappers, too!)

Have more fun with your holiday cards this season by involving the whole family in creating truly custom cards for each person on your list. 

Create a basic card. The example above is a 4"x5.5 postcard. I added a red background first; then added a picture; rounded the corners and placed a white border around it.  I added "Merry Christmas" in white letters near the bottom of the card. On the back of my card I placed a holiday greeting at the bottom, leaving plenty of room to write a personal message. (If you'd like instructions for adding a color background, please read this blog post.)
Visit your favorite hobby or craft store and purchase stickers, jewels, glitter and any other fun things you'd like to add to your cards. Scrappers I know enjoy making their own embellishments.

Assemble your card-building team and supplies. Spend an afternoon together customizing cards for your friends and family. Children will have fun making special cards for loved ones. Loved ones will enjoy receiving one-of-a-kind holiday card creations.
For more traditional custom cards, use your favorite pages, fabrics, and patterns as backgrounds on your card sets and embellish away!
