A Simple Christmas Card Tutorial

Here is a very basic Christmas card I just put together. I had some little red rhinestones that I wanted to put to use and this is what I came up with.

If you want to do it for yourself, there are some instructions below.

1" x 1" white card stock
2 1/2" x 1 3/4" light green patterned paper
2 3/4" x 2" red card stock
Blank card and envelope
Tape runner and craft glue
Small rhinestones or gemstones
Stamps and ink

Cut your card stock down to the specified sizes.
Stamp the small 1" square paper and color as desired. I used watercolor pencils and a water brush.
To make the square stand out a bit more, brush the sides lightly with an ink pad.
Use the tape runner to adhere the small square onto the light green paper and that onto the red paper.
Adhere that entire assembly onto the blank card and stamp the greeting message.
Using a tooth pick and craft glue, adhere red rhinestones to dot the "i" in "holiday" and for the berry in the holy.
