Handmade Photo Christmas Cards

Here are six ways you can combine handmade cards with your photos, and send them out this holiday season. For details on how to create them, keep scrolling to the video linked at the bottom!

1. Insert A Photo

This is what I typically do for our Christmas cards. Just insert a 4×6 photo, which you’ve trimmed down to 4×5 1/2, inside your lovely handmade cards. This snowflake card used a really neat technique you can see in this tutorial.

2. Keep It Simple

If you want to keep it easy, just add a photo to the front of your card. If you want to stamp directly onto the photo, you’ll need to use StazOn ink or white craft ink and I highly recommend using the Stamparatus so your greetings don’t end up blurry.

3. Peek Through

For this card, I ran my card base through my Cut & Emboss machine with a deckled rectangle die. It cut out the opening and I attached the photo to the inside.

Would you like the recipient to be able to remove the photo from your card? This fun idea allows it to slide out.
