Christmas Card Recipe #2


  • ArtStacks Christian Christmas MiniStack printed on cardstock
  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Card blanks
  • Red paint
  • Stitching (optional)
  • Twine
  • Chipboard stars


  • Christian Christmas Quotes MiniStack – $3 for the printed version (around $2.20 USD) or $2 for the digital version (around $1.50 USD) and you can print this as many times as you like.
  • Card blanks – These range in price but are often around 50 cents to $1 each. Making your own from cardstock is even more economical.
  • Chipboard stars – around $4 a pack. These ones are from Dusty Attic.
  • You will probably have everything else in your stash.


  1. Choose your quotes from the ArtStacks MiniStack and cut them out. Tear across the bottom of each one.
  2. Colour in the star and the ampersand in colours that contrast to your card.
  3. Use watered down paint to flick paint onto the card face. If you used paint to colour the star and ampersand, use the same paint to flick with.
  4. When the paint is dry, stitch around three edges of the quotes. Alternatively, just draw a black line.
  5. Wrap a piece of coloured twine around the bottom of the quote and tie it in a bow. Leave long ends hanging.
  6. Attach the quote to the corrugated cardboard and the corrugated cardboard to the card.
  7. Add chipboard stars to finish.

The stack I used is the Christian Christmas MiniStack printed on cardstock:
