class cards

Every year the kid's usually bring a few christmas cards for a few classmates (actually I did forget last year, it seems I was too busy having a baby). This year I thought we would make them together. Perfect opportunity to use the new stamp set.

Firstly we tore a few christmas type pages out of a magazine. Using an envelope template (you can find a similar one here) we cut these into envelope shapes. Folded and with the ends glued we were ready to go.

A simple card was made from A4 paper folded into four. A simple stamp on the front and then the kid's wrote a greeting.

A strip of brown paper on the front for a name.

Closed with a piece of pretty tape.


Wishing you all a pleasant Wednesday.

Love the envelope idea! I like giving handmade cards because they're more personal. DD12 has been making her cards too and she's raided my scrapbooking/cardmaking stash.

Handmade cards are so much nicer than shop bought, actually anything handmade is nicer in my books. Love these cards Tania which reminds me, Dawson has one here that he made for Luca..will get it in the post today :)
