"Be Jolly" Handmade Christmas Card

This handmade Christmas card features a happy snowman with a "Be Jolly" greeting.

What You Need:

  • Card stock
  • Patterned paper and die-cut snowman (We used My Mind's Eye.)
  • Die-cut letters (We used QuicKutz)
  • Buttons
  • Ink (We used Fluid Chalk by ColorBox)
  • Trimmer
  • Adhesive
  • Foam dots (We used Pop Dots.)
  • Corner rounder
  • Paper piercer
  • Circle cutter
  • Scoring tool
  • Computer/printer for printing inside greeting
  • Note: If you do not have die-cut snowmen to use on your cards, you can easily make your own (see pattern). You also can substitute letter stickers for die-cut letters and stamp or write your inside greeting instead of printing it on a computer.

How to Make It:

  1. Cut an 8-1/2-inch sheet of card stock in half width wise to create card base (5-1/2x8-1/2inches). Score and fold in half so the card opens at the bottom.
  2. Round corners and ink the edges.
  3. Cut two 1-1/2x1-1/2-inch squares from contrasting card stock and ink the edges. Cut a 2-1/4x3-1/4-inch rectangle from a third color of card stock and ink the edges. Adhere all three pieces to the front of the card.
  4. Adhere die-cut snowman using foam dots.
  5. Add "Be Jolly" to the top square.
  6. Use glue dots to attach three buttons to the bottom square.
  7. Print or stamp an inside greeting for your card.
