Use a red card kit

Cut and sew buntings, and affix using adhesive pads
Press out a die-cut bird and affix
Stamp your festive greeting text using silver paint
Send home-made Christmas cards to your friends. Paper in graphical shapes are fun to "play" with, as a way of creating beautiful, striking designs. We cut a rectangle and penants out of patterned paper to make paper buntings. Use a solid colour card kit as the base (folded cards). We went for a red colour, offset by patterned paper from the "Nordic Christmas" design pad, which also includes a sheet of die-cut designs ready to press out. METHOD: Use scissors or a roller cutter to cut penant triangles out of patterned paper and sew them into a long bunting on a sewing machine. Cut out a rectangle (smaller than the card), stamp it with a Christmas greeting text and glue to the front of the card (we used Encore Silver). Affix the bunting using adhesive pads. Press out a bird from the design pad's cut-out sheet and affix to the bunting. P.S. Using a stamped greeting saves you time writing by hand, especially if you are sending out many Christmas cards. Don't forget you need an envelope if you want to post it, or to protect the details.
