Homemade Christmas Card Family Craft

When Roz asked me to do a guest blog for her I was very honored that she would think of me since I’m not a blogging mom, I do however LOVE to read other blogs in my spare time. I am a crafty person and enjoy doing crafts with my kiddos so I thought I could manage doing a blog about my card making with my kids.

This craft project is so easy and takes very few supplies to make.

Here’s what we use:
A seasonal stamp set or two
Black stamp pad
Markers, colored pencils or crayons for little ones
Paper, white cardstock weight & various scraps of cardstock
Punches, scissors & straight edge cutter
Ribbon, glitter or other bits come in handy as well but aren’t necessary
Glue sticks or double sided tape (glue sticks are cheaper for kids)


You can get most of these supplies at your local Wal-Mart, craft stores or my website.

First, to make a standard greeting card 5 ½ x 4 ¼ you cut a standard 8 ½ x 11 piece of paper in half, this gives  you two greeting cards out of one piece of paper. We folded the card in half. I let my 11 year old pick out the layout of the stamps on her card. After the stamping is done move the card away from the area and clean the stamps. I’m using a cleaning pad and cleaning mixture on the tray in my picture. With little ones the washing of the stamps is an important step so you can teach them how to take care of the stamps. If you are using more than one stamp pad color it is important to teach them not to stamp the rubber stamps into a pad without cleaning them first. So you don’t have a black sunshine in your yellow stamp pad, trust me this is NOT good.



Second, let their creativity shine… let them color their card with their choice of colors.
You can have them add a greeting/word stamp to the inside of the card and even add a stamped decoration to the envelope.
This is the basic’s to making greeting cards with kids. You can add item’s to the projects to make them more elaborate or sit down on your own and let your own creativity shine.
