Creativiy Prompt – Super Quick Christmas Cards + Free Template

November 20th, 2009 by Avital

Super Quick Christmas Cards

Sending handmade cards is a wonderful and well appreciated gesture, but with a recipients list as long as eternity, who has the time to make them?

What if most of the work was already done? The basic design has been laid down. The greeting has been “stamped” and all you had to do is cut, score, punch and paste? That would really give the push you need to accomplish your goal of sending handmade cards to all your acquaintances.

Search no more. I have sorted out your Christmas cards dilemma for this year.

Below you can find a printable template (PDF file format) that does most of the work for you. If you are interested, keep on reading.

How To

[Watch on You Tube]

Step-By-Step Instructions

  1. Print the template on a cardstock of your choice (8½” by 11″). Make sure your printer’s setting is on “No scaling”.
  2. Cut your cardstock at 5½” and score each half at 4¼”.
  3. Cut 1¼” by 1¼” squares from the patterned paper of your choice. Use a punch to make this step super quick.
  4. Adhere your patterned paper squares to the squares on the template, using dimensional foam adhesive.
  5. Either stop here, right a personal greeting inside and send the card OR embellish some more.
