If you are the crafty type–or just enjoy that giving that special handmade touch–you may be inclined to create your own holiday cards. I use Strathmore blank cards with deckled edging in size 5×7 inches (you can find these at dickblick.com or Amazon.) Add some self-stick chipboard (chipboard is nice for added design dimension) and scrapbook border elements (mine are from K & Company I found at Jo-Ann’s Fabrics) plus ribbon and imagination, and you are set. If you want to go smaller, you can use these materials for handmade gift tags as well. Here are some simple card designs to inspire you. Enjoy!
