A handmade Holiday card is a gorgeous thing to give at this time of year – and what better way to get the kids crafting! Today we are sharing three handmade Christmas card designs using our printable templates, my new Christmas ink cubes from Hero Arts in Holiday Reds and Winter Greens and an old school pencil eraser. These designs were created with kids in mind – they are colorful, simple, and a whole heap of fun to make. Our download includes all the pieces you need to make three different designs; a pretty Holiday wreath, a cheeky snowman and bright and cheerful Holiday tree. Once all the pieces are cut and glued in place, the kiddos can then set about bringing the cards to life using a pencil top eraser and a little paint or ink cubes. The baubles of the wreath, the buttons on our snowman, the snowflakes and tree decorations are all created by dipping the eraser end of the pencil into different colored paints and then stamping the color into the cards. Kids love playing with stamps and a pencil eraser makes the perfect beginner rubber stamp for those with little fingers.
To make these cards, click on the PDF below and print onto white card stock as many times as you need. Trim the cards to size then cut out all the little pieces for adding onto each card. Use a kid friendly glue stick to attach the pieces onto each card then you are set to start stamping. If you would like more Holiday season DIY craft projects, take a look over here. We have felted angels, balsa wood trees, a paper nativity scene and possibly the cutest DIY snowman you ever did see!
