As we are approaching the festive winter holidays, we start to prepare for different festive traditions and activities. One of the most common activities, for this time of the year, is giving out cards. This year, you can get absolutely creative and make your very own cards to give out. This definitely makes the card giving tradition more personal. Those who will receive the cards will absolutely feel the love and your caring from these personalized cards. Here are some fantastic ideas for you to choose from to make some festive cards this year.
1. Pop up Christmas Tree Card
This definitely is quite creative. It does not involve much work to be put into making it really. You simply have to cut out a Christmas tree from any paper with any decorations you please. Then, fold Manila paper to make the card. You can use any Christmas colored Manila paper. You then stick the Christmas tree in a way that allows it to pop up when the card is opened. You can then add some decorations onto the card, whether it is some painting, glitters or some festive stickers.
2. Paint Chip Christmas Cards
For this, you will need to use some colored paper. Choose particular colors that you would like to use to make some Christmas trees for your cards. Then, make sure you use three to four shades of the colors you pick. Cut out the colored papers into the shapes they need to make a Christmas tree. Then, stick the same color pieces of paper to make the trees. You can choose to either have the darker shade of the chosen colors as the bases of the trees so that as the tree goes up, the shade of color gets lighter, or vice versa.
3. Button Ornaments Cards
To make these cards, you will need different shaped, colored and sized buttons. It would be most preferable if the colors of the buttons are the Christmas colors. All you will need to do is to use a plain white manila paper to make the card. The manila has to be white so that the colors of the buttons pop out. Then, stick on the paper the different buttons. You can have the buttons in a particular patterned way. You can then use colors to draw some lines from the buttons to the edge of the paper so to make the buttons look like hanging Christmas ornaments.
4. Christmas tree Cards
This is another idea that involves putting Christmas trees on your cards. You can never go wrong with Christmas trees during this festival season. For these cards, you must use different hues of green to make the trees. Stick the different hues together so that the color really blends in well. Cut out the paper to make the trees and simply stick them to paper with a single color. Make sure that the color of the paper will not over shadow the trees.
5. Black and White effect
For these cards, you will be using black and white papers. You can choose to use the black paper as the main card and cut out Christmas trees from the white paper, or vice versa. For the decorations on the trees, you can use colors such as grey, silver and gold. Make sure that the decorations for the trees are simple and yet stand out.
6. Different Material Cards
These cards are very creative. You get to use different material to make them. You can use cloth, paper and buttons at the same time.

8. Folded Christmas tree Cards
I absolutely love this idea! It allows me to look artsy and creative. All you have to do to make the trees is to fold some plain paper into triangles. Make sure that the pieces of paper that you will use to make the trees in not too big so that your tree can fit perfectly into the card. Stick these folded triangles, starting with the smallest top triangle. Stick the pieces one on top of the other with some part hanging below. This will create perfect edges for the tree. You can then add some decorations onto the tree.
9. Complimentary colors Christmas tree
You will need to use two papers to make this card. You will need a read paper and a green paper. The fun part about these colors is that not only are they Christmas colors, the two are complementary colors as well. Cut up one of the papers so that when folded right, the cut up parts stand out to look like a Christmas tree. You can then stick the tree paper onto the other paper.
10. Colored Tissue Paper Christmas tree Cards
This is quite and easy idea to do. All you will need to do is stick some pieces of pieces of colored tissue paper onto our card to make a Christmas tree. You can stick the tissue paper in a way that gives it pleats. This will definitely make the tree look more realistic.
