Holiday Card Making

One of my favorite holiday activities is writing and sending cards to family and friends. When I was a kid my mom would always ask me to help seal and stamp the envelopes. This year I thought it would be fun to start a new tradition and make my own holiday cards. Here are some designs and tutorials I’ve found inspiring. I’ve included a range of difficulty, so there should be something for every ability level. I’ve even included a couple  that kids can help with.

This resource is one of the most helpful, user friendly card making sites out there. They have some beautiful designs and tutorials to choose from. This is just one of my favorites.

  Clean and Simple Cards

One of several card styles often used by those who create cards is clean and simple, abbreviated often as CAS.  This style is defined as being uncluttered with a lot of open areas, one main image that is the focus of the card, limited embellishments and layers.  It also, has to be quick to make and easy to remake.  We often find ourselves in the difficult position of creating a card with very little time to do it and this often occurs doing the holidays.
