DIY Holiday Greeting Cards

By Roseann

 

Every year we all send and receive holiday greeting cards.  There are few things more special than receiving a card made by hand specifically for you.  Each handmade card created can be tailored for the recipient and express the maker’s personality and style.  I have created several cards using traditional and nontraditional themes in hopes to give you all a little inspiration.  I used an array of trims including; leather cording, beaded trim, nailheads, rhinestones, and leather tape.  I love the way the trims used create a unique texture for an unexpected holiday surprise.

I hope that you feel inspired to try and create some cards of your own.  Try something new and unexpected this season; I look forward to hearing all about what you’ve come up with.  Happy DIY Holidays!

Have you ever visited your local holiday card store and found nothing that really expressed how you felt?  If you have, then that’s when making your own homemade card comes in handy.  It’s quite enjoyable.  It sort of reminds me of when we were in elementary school working on arts and crafts.  Who said that after we grow up, the creaitivity and fun has to go away?

I found some really cute homemade cards.  Each image links to the owner’s blog; which has more inspirational ideas.  If you notice, each card is embellished with either grosgrain or single face satin ribbon.  Go ahead and give it a try.  Make your own homemade card and decorate with will beautiful ribbons.
