I am making so many hand-made presents this year that I wasn’t sure if there would be time to make my own Christmas cards.
However the idea I had was a matter of printing and folding and didn’t involve time-consuming crochet or cross-stitch, so I finally sat down on Saturday to see what I could do.
If you do a search on the internet you will find lots of places offering to tell you how to make a star shaped card.
I had found one of these places quite a while ago and thought that since Jesus was Jewish and the six pointed square is a symbol of Judaism that the shape of card would make an excellent Christmas card. It is also rather clever.
Here is a photograph of the first page
I used my Corel Draw program to draw the triangle and then added some slip art in appropriate places.
The other side is like this:- When I was happy that everything worked, I removes some of the lines and just left those that I needed to cut and fold the card in the right places.
and the second page. And here is the finished card.
I decided to use some yellow or cream paper for the card as it produces a stiff enough result and is easier to fold.
As I was using A4 paper the card is relatively small. It should fit in a standard C6 envelope.
Here it is when opened.
