How To Make A Santa Card
How To Make A Santa Card 3-D Style!
Here's how to make a Santa card 3-D style with your kids this holiday season. If you love to give cards to your family and friends, and enjoy making these cards yourself, you are going to be pleased to find this step by step card making tutorial. And what better theme to decorate your card with than Santa Claus.
You and your kids can impress those closest to you with a beautiful homemade card. Crafters and DIYer's are talented people who enjoy making and giving out homemade items, so this card project for Christmas is perfect as a seasonal craft idea. Santa is one of the most iconic symbols of Christmas. He shares with everyone, hands out free gifts, and travels with magical reindeer around the world in one night. Everyone I know loves Santa and the generous spirit he shows us.
Santa is pictured as being a jolly, round fellow with a long white beard. He lives in the North Pole with many elves who help Santa make and prepare toys for children and they do this all year long to prepare for the round the world voyage on Christmas Eve.
We can send out e-cards at Christmas time, but which would you rather receive? A techno savvy e-card, or a beautiful homemade card that someone put love and effort into making just for you. I know I would much rather have the homemade card, it would be a gift in itself. Just knowing how much time, thought, and effort went into the making of that DIY card would make this holiday greeting extra special and dearly appreciated.
Yes, anyone can also buy a box of cards in stores but that's not quite the same as the heartwarming feeling you would get by giving and receiving a homemade Christmas card, and this Santa card is fun and easy to make when you follow the step-by-step picture tutorial I've put on this page.
