Super Quick Grid Christmas Cards

I don't know about you, but my Christmas card factory is in full swing.  I love making handmade Christmas cards for my friends and family, but sometimes it can feel overwhelming.  One way to lighten the load is to create similar Christmas cards in bulk.

With only a single sheet of paper, some cardstock, and some stickers, you can create several grid Christmas cards in a snap.

Part of the fun of making grid card is choosing squares to create a theme for each card.  These little gingerbread men make the sweetest little card.  I trimmed another square for the sentiment.  Keeping cards free of embellishments makes them super quick to put together.

I started with a single piece of 12"x12" paper and cut the squares apart.  Each square measures 2"x2" making it easy to fit four squares on a single A2 card.

After I cut the individual squares apart, I had fun grouping them with other squares.  I stayed with a red and green color scheme for this card and chose images that fit well with cute Santa.  I wrapped the card with a piece of twine, but kept other embellishments at a minimum so it would still be mailable.

I love the addition of swimming pool in this Christmas collection.  This card is full of bright and fun holiday images.  I added a border and sentiment while still keeping the card flat and mailable.

With many more squares left, you can have fun mixing and matching all sorts of images and colors to create many cute Christmas cards in a jiffy.

Thanks for stopping by today!
