Quick & Easy DIY Christmas Cards

If you caught Lori on Fox 11 News Sunday morning, you saw her create super simple Christmas cards (watch the segments here). We've gotten lots of questions about the cards, so we're sharing them here on the blog too! These cards are perfect for any skill level and can be created in an afternoon! 

Card One: Happy Winter with Patterned Paper

This card is as quick and easy as they get! A piece of patterned paper was added to the card front. To finish it up, Lori stamped a sentiment onto cream cardstock and adhered it to the card with 3D foam squares.

Card Two: Merry Christmas with a Stamped Background

At Creations Galore, we love background stamps. For this card, Lori stamped a music themed background stamp onto cream cardstock. She added a second layer of gold and placed them onto the card front. Just like the previous card, a sentiment was stamped onto cardstock and attached to the card with permanent adhesive. Two extra steps in this card, but still quick and easy!

Card Three: Joyeux Noel with an Embossing Folder & Ink

This last card is the hardest of the three, but it's still a beginner card that can be created in no time at all! Lori placed the blue cardstock into an embossing folder and ran it through the Evolution tool to create the raised snowflake images. To highlight the images, she ran a blue ink lightly over embossed design. This was added with a white layer to the front of the card. And again, just like the two previous cards, a stamped sentiment on white cardstock was adhered to the front too!
