Sending Cheer Christmas Card Ideas

Let’s make some Christmas cards today! The cards feature the Sending Cheer Bundle which is actually designed for creating tags. But it works well for Christmas cards too. Besides the variety of card ideas, I will also share a few fun ways to re-use your card layouts to create a completely different look!

Sending Cheer

The Sending Cheer Bundle has a variety of different stamp images and die cut shapes you can use to create some absolutely adorable Christmas tags. By why stop with tags? You can easily use this bundle to create some coordinating Christmas cards! These are the first two cards I made with the bundle. I love the adorable little Santa hat and though it would make the perfect focal point for a card.

The layout is pretty simple. Start with a 2-1/2 x 4 inch piece of embossed white cardstock. Cut a 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 inch square shape for the Santa hat. Embellish as desired. Notice how you can use this exact same layout to create the Elf card. Simply switch around the colors! The patterned paper is from the Joy of Christmas Designer Series Paper pack. However, keep in mind you can use any patterned papers you have on hand with this layout.

Gingerbread Cards

The next couple of card ideas feature the adorable little gingerbread man from the Sending Cheer Bundle. Start by stamping the gingerbread man image on a scrap piece of white cardstock using Pecan Pie ink. Cut out the image using the coordinating Sending Cheer die. You will have to trim off the “tag” part from the head of each Gingerbread man. However, it’s super easy to do so be sure to watch the video HERE.

For these cards, I combined some of the Glorious Gingham DSP and the Joy of Christmas DSP. The Pecan Pie colored gingham is such a great background paper for the gingerbread men! The Glorious Gingham DSP layers for the first card is 3-3/4 x 5 and 2-1/4 x 5-1/2 inches for the second card. The embossed white cardstock piece is 2-1/2 x 3-3/4 inches for both cards. The red checked paper is 1-1/2 x 4-1/4 inches for the first card and 3/4 x 3-3/4 inches for the second card. The Early Espresso cardstock pieces are simply scraps that I was using up. The pieces are cut to 4-1/4 and 4-1/2 inches in length respectively. You can use any width.

Stocking Cards

The last couple of card ideas feature the stocking die cut shape from the Sending Cheer Bundle. There are a few different ways you can use it too! The first card features the stocking cut from a piece of the Joy of Christmas DSP. All the little parts of the stocking were cut from white cardstock. The basic layout features a 1-1/2 x 5-1/2 inch piece of the holly paper in the background. Next, cut a 3 x 3 inch piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and adhere it behind a 2-1/2 x 3-3/4 inch piece of the wood grain paper. You can decorate the card as desired.

The second card idea features the exact same layout as the first one. I changed out the colors and used some of the Regals DSP. The stocking features the Floating Focal point technique. You can learn more about this technique HERE.
