Christmas Card (Two for One)

I love Christmas. Back before I was a working mom I used to make homemade Christmas cards. Here is the same card with a different message and paper. It always amazes me how different cards can look when you just change a couple of things.

You will need:
Christmas print paper
coordinating paper
white cardstock
red ribbon (about 3/4 yard)
4 brads
Christmas sticker or printed message

Cut your card out of white cardstock and fold in half. Then cut your Christmas print paper so it fits the front of your card. Put your Christmas sticker or print a Christmas message on the vellum, cut it out, and attach it with brads to the Christmas print at the top of the card. You can use a background paper behind the vellum to add interest (especially if your background paper has a lot of white) as one of the cards shows. Then it is time to add the ribbon. Wrap the ribbon around the Christmas print twice below the vellum and then tie in a bow. Then glue your Christmas print paper on the white cardstock.
