Hey Pebbles fans, Becki here. Christmas is only 3 days away! I’m finishing up some last minute details. Are you ready for the big day? I look forward to sending out Christmas cards every year. Some years I make Christmas cards and some years I have them printed. The one thing that I always do is include a photo. I usually include a family photo or a photo of my kids. This year I made our Christmas cards and designed them to include our family photo. Today I want to show you 3 cards that I created. Each card is different but they all include a family photo.
The first card I created has our photo right on the front of the card. This is a 5×7 card. I framed our photo with a 4×6 journaling card. I added the “Merry Christmas” sentiment sticker to the bottom right of the photo.
The inside of the card has two 3×4 cards. One has the sentiment, the other is a journaling card. I used this card to hand write a greeting from our family.
I love gate fold cards. A gate fold card is a card that has 2 flaps that cover the inside of the card. I created a 6×6 gate fold card, covered it in patterned paper and used a “Merry Christmas” sticker as the seal on the card.
The inside of this card has a few stickers, our family photo, and even a pocket to include more photos or even a gift card.
I used the kraft tag that goes inside the tag pocket to write who the card is from. I love adding hand writing to my cards. It gives the card a more personal touch.
The last card I created has a huge sentiment “Merry Christmas” using candy cane Thickers. I stitched the Thickers onto the front of the card to make sure they stayed in place while in the mail.
On the inside of this card I just adhered our family photo and wrote on a kraft tag and adhered it under the photo.
Enjoy the Christmas season and create a few cards that include your family photos.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Thank you for visiting us here at Pebbles.
