Christmas Cards

Santa Belt Buckle Card

I let the card design be the festive part of the card. Blue is my favorite color so my family usually wears different shades of blue for our family photos. Blue didn’t work well with the design I had in mind for our Christmas cards so I changed the photo to black and white. Here's the result of the black and white photo on a Santa Belt Buckle card design.

Made By: Kelly Hedgespeth
Time: 5 minutes
Level: Beginner
Size: 7 inch by 5 inch

Here's what you need:

  • Glue Dots® Glue Squares®
  • 8.5 inch x 11 inch cardstock in red, black and white
  • 6 inch x 6 inch gold foiled cardstock from DCWV
  • Making Memories paper trimmer
  • black and white photo


Here's what you do:

Use the paper trimmer to cut the cardstock and photo to these sizes:


  • Red – 7 inch x 10 inch
  • White – 6.5 inch x 4.5 inch
  • Black – 7 inch x 2 inch
  • Gold foil – 3 inch x 3 inch
  • Photo – 2.5 inch x 2.5 inch


Fold the red cardstock in half to form a 7 inch x 5 inch card.

Use Glue Squares to adhere the following:

  • White cardstock to the inside of the red card
  • Photo onto the center of the gold foil
  • Black cardstock strip to the front of the red card
  • Gold foil to the center of the black strip 



These cards would be quicker to make in bulk. Just cut all the paper and photos first and then do an assembly line construction.
