These cute homemade Christmas cards are a SNAP to make!

I cannot get over how fast these cute homemade Christmas cards come together! I was experimenting with some of these adorable minis and all of a sudden I realized I had made a whole card! These are the perfect cards for batch making; spend a night in front of the TV rolling scraps through your die cutting machine and then have a blast putting together your itty bitty “scenes”! You can make ENDLESS Christmas cards with these to mini sets that look super high end and extra fancy!

The Card Base and Cover Frame

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock.
  • Use red cardstock to cut the cover die.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape all the way around the back border of the frame and to some of the cross sections of the cover.
  • Attach the frame to the card base.

The Christmas and Santa Minis

  • Cut both the Christmas Mini and Santa Mini sets out twice, once using red and the second using green.
  • Mix and match the pieces and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Attach a tiny section of gold metallic twine to the Santa bag using a glue dot.
  • Use green cardstock to cut tiny holly leaves and red cardstock to cut the tiny circles.
  • Attach some of the holly leaves and berries to the mini images using glossy accents to embellish.
  • Fill in the top line and bottom line of open spaces with the holly and berries and attach using glossy accents.

I’ve had lots of fun using the Santa Mini and Christmas Mini sets   Take a look at my Super Cute Snowman Tags and Cute Christmas Die Cuts for more mini die inspiration.

I know that I am known for some over the top detailed cards and that you all love seeing those details put together. This card LOOKS like one of those “extra” cards but comes together so fast! Make one or one hundred and wait for the oohs and aahs!
