Homemade Christmas Cards: Glitter snowflake card

Published November 17, 2012

Make these pretty cards as invitations or Christmas cards

We don’t always have time to sit down and create our own Christmas cards and invitations but if you have a spare Saturday or Sunday morning you may want to try this simple one.

Homemade cards are always appreciated and treasured by the recipient. There is something rewarding about creating your own holiday card and the result in the end is worth it.

For this card, simply purchase pretty craft paper from your local stationary store. You can find large books of this type of craft paper at Michaels and other department stores. I find they are great to keep on hand for other projects during the remainder of the year.

This card is simply a pre-made cutout card with an adhesive decoration placed inside. There are so many different decorations on retail shelves at the moment for decorating the inside and outside of the card. Be sure to plan out your design ahead of time.



  • 1-2 packages of blank, pre-cut white note cards (Michaels)
  • 2-3 individual sheets of Christmas decorated craft paper
  • White craft glue
  • Utility Knife & Scissors
  • Roll of adhesive snowflakes (Michaels)
  • Pencil


Begin by tracing out the size of the front of the note card on the wrong side of the craft paper. Cut out with scissors. Place the good side of the blank, pre-cut white note card against the wrong side of the craft paper (previously cut) and carefully trace out the small window with your pencil. Using your utility knife carefully cut out the window on the craft paper.

Glue the wrong side of the craft paper to the good side of the note card. You should have a window straight through to the inside of the card.

Place the adhesive decoration in the center of the window so it becomes visible through the cut out.

Decorate the inside of the card with handwritten notes and other adhesive cutouts.
