Cute and Easy Christmas Card Designs
Fingerprint Lights Cards
One of the simplest cards you can make is by painting Christmas lights using your fingers. I’m pretty sure your kids will love making these! Use bright colors to make your cards attractive!
Santa Hat Card
With red-colored paper and some cotton balls, make a Santa hat design for your Christmas card. Cute, simple, and very easy! Make sure to write some warm greetings inside to make your loved ones smile.
Making this card is easy, all you need are two kinds of paper, a white one and a colored one, scissors, and glue. Cut out your white paper like the photo shown below and you can also add a couple of snowflakes for more details.
This can be a bit tricky but it’s a fun thing to do and experiment with. Use a masking fluid or a white wax crayon to draw your design first before splashing a layer of watercolor paint on top of it. Don’t forget to let the layers of paint dry first before adding another one. This way, you’ll get cooler effects!
Here’s another example of watercolor cards. Pretty, right? 😀
