Easy Christmas Card

Hi blog friends!
Kristie here from 
This month I have another easy Christmas card for you.
Have you started those Christmas cards yet?
If not, this is a very quick and easy card to make.
Can you guess from the supplies what it will be?
Here's what you need.
White card stock 11" x 4 1/4"
Red card stock 5 1/4" x 4"
Black card stock 5" x 1"
Silver paper 1 1/2" x 1 1/4"
White card stock 2 circles about 3/4" 
you could also use buttons rather than card stock circles.

Score your card base at 5 1/2" to form a 
5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card

Using a pencil draw a line on either side of the black
paper onto the silver paper.
This is the easiest way to know the size to cut.

Mark about 1/4" in from the each end and mark where the center of the silver piece is.
in the center, draw lines equally away from the center mark on each side as shown in the picture.

Using a craft blade and a straight edge, I like a metal ruler,
cut along the lines so you will have a piece like shown below.


Slip the black strip through the silver piece,
weaving over the center "bar"

Use tape to secure it on the back. I just used a little piece
of craft tape, you could use scotch tape or whatever is on hand.

Position the "belt" where you want it and turn the whole
piece over.

Fold the edges over to the back and secure with tape or glue.

Place the white circles (or buttons if you prefer)
 above the belt and glue them into place.
Adhere to the white card base.

You now have an adorable Santa suit Christmas card.
Now how quick and easy is that?

Thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you try making some of these quick and easy cards.
I'd love it if you'd stop over to my blog, 
 and see what I've got going on there.

See you again next month, until then
have fun crafting!
