Handmade Christmas cards – Kézzel készített karácsonyi lapok

There is no need to buy Christmas cards in a store.  With a little creativity, one can make their own unique ones which probably would be treasured by the recipients.

I made these (and many more) cards a few years ago using used postage stamps.  I bought empty cardstock in a paper supply store.  For my design, I tried to color coordinate the stamps by adding a bit of layering with colored papers of different textures, and occasionally a sticker.  Besides the cardstock, stamps, and papers, I needed only scissors, glue, and a straightedge.  And, of course, a few hours of my time.  It was a lot of fun to think about the design and the whole activity was very relaxing.  The scanned photos feature the front side of the cards.
