Easy Christmas Card Ideas - Snowflake

christmas card ideas snowflake

Homemade Christmas card ideas don't require a lot of supplies or material.

This is an example of a Homemade Christmas card that simply uses blue and white cardstock and little snowflakes.

I bought a little packet of these iridescent snowflakes at my craft store for about a dollar. And the paper I already had on hand, so that saved some money, too.

The cool thing about these snowflakes is that one side of the snowflake is iridescent, while the other side is just white - so that gives me more flexibility in designing the handmade card because I can choose the white side if I wanted a more mute and matte colored card. But I really like the iridescent colors, especially when they reflect light.

There are other patterns that you might want to consider if you can't find little snowflakes, you can use little Christmas trees, holiday wreaths, snowmen, penguins, a print of Santa Claus - there are tons of iconic symbols used all over the world to represent the Christmas holiday - so it's just a matter of choosing which one you want to use!

Also, try digging through your craft supplies, you may have a rubber stamps that have Christmas themes that you may be able to use instead of going out and buying some more supplies.

This homemade Christmas cards project is also great for kids. You can cut out colored squares and have a lot of little pictures to let your kids make their own special card - with minimal mess!

Happy Holiday Crafting!
