Create your own holiday cards in a flash with these easy DIY quick stamped Christmas cards!
I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to all things holiday. I usually wait until the last minute for all of my shopping, which every year I swear I’m not going to do! However, with so much going on the time flies by and I find myself buying gifts the week before! Eek!
I also wait until the last minute to send out my holiday cards. I wait and wait and in the past I have ended up not sending out anything because the cards will arrive after Christmas, which I don’t want! I decided this year was going to be different. Instead of doing the whole picture card idea, I wanted to make my own. I didn’t want the cards to be too elaborate since I knew my time was limited. While searching through all of the holiday stamps at Rubberstamps.com, I came across a Christmas tree stamps and “Merry Christmas” stamps. To avoid multiple steps, I added 3 small trees and the sentiment to one acrylic block. Instead of doing green, red and gold, I swapped out the green for pink for a brighter, trendy look.
Since this card was so easy and quick to make (even with the extra embellishments!) I’m actually done with all of my holiday cards, which is a miracle! Check out the video below to see how you can make your own DIY quick stamped Christmas card!
