Nothing can relay your merry season wishes like an elegantly handmade Christmas Card.

We’ve created 4 Christmas card designs that look brilliant and are easy to make with your kids.

SNOWMAN FAMILY 

This card was inspired by a cute drawing I saw a month back of a family of snowmen. I thought this could be a great card for the holidays but decided to give it a bit more character.

GIFT THEMED CARDS

I’ve seen greeting cards with gift boxes printed on them in the shops so I thought I’d try making my own. My 6 year old daughter and I spread our craft supplies on the dining room table and within an hour we had created a few different card designs. I was surprised at how easy and fast it was to make these. You really can be as creative as you want with your presents, colors, ribbons and fonts depending on whether you want a more elegant or fun look.

SPARKLY BAUBLE 

This bauble card is so pretty and shiny I kept it on my desk for a few days just so I can keep looking at it while I work. For a more Christmas-y look you can swap the pink and purple to green, gold and red. I tried making one with red gemstones on a while card and it also looks fabulous.
