In case you’re wondering why I post these Christmas cards now when Christmas is over, here’s one interesting fact about me. I celebrate both Christmases (Catholic and Orthodox) because my mother is Catholic and my father is Orthodox. In my family, however, the majority are Orthodox, meaning they celebrate Christmas on January 06. So, I recently sent these Christmas cards.
Do you still send Christmas cards to your loved ones? Have you ever received a Christmas card? 📮 I’m sure you did! Wasn’t that a wonderful feeling?
About two decades ago, the post offices were full of Christmas greeting cards and letters. Receiving a card from someone was a privilege, and when a card arrived at your address it meant that you were very special and that your sender cared especially for you.
Some cards expressed religious feelings, some contained song, prayer, Christmas verses, or biblical motifs; others focused on wishes on solemn greetings and wishes for the new year. The symbols on these greeting cards mainly concerned the motifs of Christ’s birth – the stars in the sky (led by sages), cradles, angels, the Christmas tree, the white globe (symbol of peace). Other greeting cards were decorated with Santa Claus, elves, Snow White, happy children who enjoy the joys of winter, and games on the snow.
I love sending Christmas cards! Especially this year since we are unable to see our loved ones due to Corona lockdowns.
So I’ve made 4 easy DIY Christmas cards for my loved ones and I wanted to share them with you. 🌟
#1 – DIY 3D Paper Bauble Christmas Card
I used white cardboard to make this card. I decorated the upper right and left corners with a paper puncher. And I made a 3D bauble out of designer paper based on the DIY 3D Paper Ornament Christmas Card Idea
#2 – Washi Tape Christmas Trees Card
The base of the card is the same as for the 3D Bauble Christmas card. I choose six different washi tapes in order to make six Christmas trees. Once I found the middle of the card for trees I put the washi tape shapes and drew a trunk with the help of a black marker.
#3 – Snowflake Paper Punch Christmas Wreath Card
The card base is made easily like with the first two cards. Then, with the help of the snowflake paper puncher, I made Christmas wreath alike. In the end, I glue up a red ribbon bow in the middle of the wreath.
#4 – DIY Foam Christmas Tree Card
In order to make this card, I was using white cardboard for the base, then I glue up a smaller white cardboard frame in the middle with all four corners decorated with an edge puncher and glue up red cardboard in each edge to make the corners stand out. I cut out a Christmas tree shape from the foam, glue it in the middle of the card base, and add star stickers to it. The final touch was the handwritten Merry Christmas. I wrote it on plain white paper, cut out the shape, and glue it under the foam Christmas tree.
