Luxe Rhinestone "Ho Ho" Card

This luxe DIY Christmas card possesses a vibrant texture thanks to the velvety red and white-flocked paper and the rhinestone "Ho Ho" letter stickers.

If you're looking for a show-stopping card or holiday party invitation, browse the scrapbook aisles in your local craft or paper store and find an amazing accent to build your design around.

The example below is simple enough to replicate and our easy how-to will give you exact directions, but try getting creative with your own design. Choose paper that will communicate your holiday party's theme if you're passing it out as an invitation or, if you're using it as a greeting card, find paper each of your recipients will appreciate.

  • Black textured cardstock (8 x 11 inches)
  • Red and white-flocked paper
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Rhinestone "ho ho" letter stickers

Step 1: Fold the black cardstock in half to make a card (Tip: Use a bone folder along the folded edge to make a nice flat crease). Note this card is in a "landscape" format and opens from the bottom up (refer to photo).

Step 2: Divide the front of the card into 4 equal quadrants using a ruler to mark precise measurements with a pencil.

Step 3: Cut 2 rectangles from red and white flocked paper to fit the quadrants (or whatever cardstock you're using). Use double-stick tape to attach the rectangles to diagonally opposing quadrants (refer to photo).

Step 4: Attach a "Ho" rhinestone sticker in each of the remaining black quadrants for a festive, yet glam holiday greeting.
