Homemade Christmas Card featuring the Joyous Noel Speciality Designer Paper and Merry Christmas To All Stamp Set

This simple homemade Christmas Card is one of my three September/October Free Card Kits and Stamp Club projects.

It’s made with the gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Series Paper and the coordinating Glimmer Paper in that suite. I’ve used two stamp sets on my card here but I’ll also show a version that uses just one stamp set as well. For this card I’ve used the Merry Christmas To All Stamp Set (for the sentiment) and the Dashing Deer Stamp Set for the elements above and below the sentiment. If you’re planning to make a homemade Christmas Card this year, this design is quick and easy to make multiples of!

Today’s homemade Christmas card features an alternative way to make your card body.

Here are the details:

Project kits were made to include one of three combinations of designer paper pieces.

For each DSP piece there are designs on both sides. So, there were lots of fun combinations to choose from. I’ve included photos of some of these variations in my video tutorial ahead.

After the card body is assembled you’ll attach the two designer paper pieces as shown below.

The 1″ wide strip will get centered on the folded panel and the larger piece will be attached as shown here:
