St. Nicholas Cards to Make

 using Die-Cut Pictures

Scrap pictures

Transform commercial Christmas cards into St. Nicholas greetings by adding Ernst Freihoff German die-cut designs. It is a good idea to clip the designs and take them along to the store so you can see how they really look when selecting cards. The easily separated die-cuts come with glitter and without. These cards are made without glitter. For some designs, trim the snow from around the feet. Attaching pictures with small pieces of foam mounting squares gives a bit of dimension to the scene.

Here are some examples of Christmas cards with added die-cut pictures. Click picture for larger view.
