Retro Christmas Cards–DIY

I’m not a big Christmas card sender.  Yes, I like receiving them, and chances are, if you send me one you will get one back – but don’t bank on it.  This last weekend I was in one of my retro moods and decided to make a few cards to send out.

When I started this project I knew how I wanted my cards to look but I wasn’t sure if I could find the type of images I had in mind.  After searching on-line for a few minutes I found just what I was looking for.

For this project you will need:  printed images you wish to use, some blank cards, scissors, a glue stick, and a little rick rack.  Easy peasy!


So, my cards are made and sent out and I still have a lot to do before I’m ready for Christmas – eek!

Are you ready for the Christmas?  What’s left on your list of things to do?

  2. I remember when I was little and stayed at my Grandma’s house A LOT during the holidays:-) We would take old cards, cut out a circle and make ornaments with the old style cards! Your cards turned out beautiful, Hugs, Terra

  4. Hallmark better look out!!! I am unbelievably far behind, according to my standards. Which I am willing to lower just a bit. Whatever is meant to be done will be and I will enjoy being with my family. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year dear friend!
