Handmade Christmas Cards

Handmade Christmas cards can be embellished with many kinds of materials. But how about Iron on patches? Go beyond of covering a hole in a cloth by adding an iron on patch on handmade Christmas cards.

You can find all materials for the handmade Christmas cards in the Buddly Crafts blog with more inspiration.

For these handmade Christmas cards I used 3 different designs of Iron on pathes. You don’t need to iron them on the card, just glue them or use some repositional tape to make them useful afterwards for the person to be given to decorate a cloth!

Use iron on patches to decorate your Christmas cards.

Lay the ice crystals on the card. Remove the excess. I suggest to turn the card and press it on the ice crystals excess to secure them on the card. Let it aside to dry.
