I am continuing my cards from the Echo Park paper kit called Celebrate Christmas. It is a fun set of two-sided papers and stickers just waiting to be made in many, many cards. Today I am showing you how to make a DIY handmade glitter Christmas card.
DIY Handmade Glitter Christmas Card
I just love this card and it is another easy one. It is also the 2nd card I have made using this kit. If you missed the first one you see it here! Let’s get started!
I have included affiliate links in my materials list for your convenience. You can read my full disclosure here.

Here we go…
Cut a piece of the red snowflake paper 5.25 x 4 for the background piece.
Choose the “Merry Christmas To All and To all A Good Night” sticker from the sticker sheet. Ink the edges, punch a hole in the side that doesn’t have one already and add some mounting tape to the back.
Cut a piece of green tree pattern paper 2 x 4. Ink the edges with the black ink and adhere it to the red snowflake paper about 1 inch from the left side.
Thread some bakers twine through one of the holes in the sticker. Mount the sticker onto the background paper over the green part, then continue by adding twine to the other side of the sticker.
Turn the card over, trim the twine and tape the ends to the back of the card.
Cut an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper in half (5.5 x 8.5) and fold.
Ink the edges with the black ink.
Adhere the top piece to the card base. There will be a border around the edges.
Add the stickles! Stickles is glitter glue and it is so fun.
Squeeze the bottle and add small amounts to the center of each snowflake on the red paper and to the outer dots of some of the snowflakes. This is a great way to add glitter to your Christmas card without all of the actual glitter mess.
Let the stickles dry for at least 15 minutes but until they are totally dry!
Voila! Your glitter Christmas card is ready to go. Congratulations.
I hope you make one of these cards and I hope you will check out the video and Ornament card from yesterday!
