Let’s make a tiny handmade Christmas card to spread love and joy this holiday season. Why not think outside the box and make some of festive greetings the “non-standard” size?
If you checked out this post, you’ll already know the most common sizes of handmade cards. Think anything outside of those sizes doesn’t measure up? You might be surprised how sweet it is to see this on a special Christmas gift this year!
Take a peek at the punch my small holiday gift card makes! And this one you can make with a non-Christmas set of stamps!
Let’s find out more…
Do you remember this stamp set? You’ll have seen me use it on this ultra quick heat embossed card (which you could almost get away with for a Christmas card too!)
While it’s a small card, there’s a bunch of fun paper crafting techniques here to give it lots of personality! Dry embossing, die cutting and fussy cutting make it stand out!
Make a Tiny Handmade Christmas Card
How can you craft up a miniature card with tons of personality like this one? Here are a few of my tips!
Choose Your Colours Wisely
I chose a classic Christmas colour pairing of Old Olive, Whisper White and Real Red. You can never go wrong combining these!
Keep Design Pieces in Proportion to the Card
With smaller cards like this one, you want lots of “uninterrupted” space so your card looks a bit bigger. The one focal point fern is a perfect size to draw the eye, but it’s surrounded by lots of the Old Olive card so it stands out even more.
And even though the card is dry embossed with the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder, the non-fussy design doesn’t compete with the image for your attention.
The petite sized greeting (which is cut out of a stamp from the Wrapped in Christmas set) only adds to this card’s charm.
Don’t Overdo the Embellishments
One simple gold glittered red dot and a basic bow from braided linen are all that are needed to upscale the card.
Take a Mini Challenge!
If you’ve never made any card other than a standard sized one, I’m issuing you a challenge to give one a try. Believe me, you can pack a lot of fun into a pint-sized card like this!
If you’d like to copy and share this design, I would be honoured. Here are all the supplies I used and you can add them to your own stash by clicking on any of them here.Everything You Need

If you do, be sure to decorate an envelope to match! A quick couple stamps on the envelope flap instantly elevates your card into the specialty category!
I sure hope you do make a tiny handmade Christmas card this holiday season – you just might be surprised the amount of love a tiny greeting like this can say!
