Christmas card ideas

Easy Christmas card crafts

Even in these times of WhatsApp and Facebook, friends and family still love to receive homemade cards. It’s hardly surprising that they’re so popular, since it only takes one glance to know that the sender has willingly spent time making something truly personal for someone who’s special to them. So why not give it a try and make your own Christmas cards this year? All you need is some plain card and the right kind of pen. With the aid of the edding 1200 colour pens in metallic shades, your designs will take shape before you know it. The nib is exceptionally soft, producing an intense, opaque colour result. The metallic colour pens are ideal for getting creative on light-coloured paper – and they stand out even better on dark paper. To make designing even easier, you can use stencils or templates. We have a number of templates available on our website with a selection of festive phrases and motifs, which means that even more elaborate designs are super-quick to make.
