Card Making

Christmas Joy Cards

Thursday, December 03, 2015

I'm back today to share some super easy and fast cards made with the Christmas Joy products from Creative Memories.


All six of these cards were made in about a half an hour as the only "work" I had to do was punch or cut the papers and adhere. Using the Christmas Joy stickers and slide-in cards made it so fast and easy!

Materials Used:


Joy Card
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8.5 x 5.5, then score and fold it in half to form 4.25 x 5.5 card base.
  • Cut a piece of Cranberry cardstock to 4 x 5.25
  • Punch or cut seven hexagon shapes from patterned papers and one from white cardstock 
  • Stamp a sentiment or image onto the white hexagon
  • Arrange hexagons in a honeycomb pattern on the cranberry cardstock as shown, trimming off the edges of the ones that hang over the edge
  • Adhere the cranberry cardstock onto the card base


Noel Card
