What I love about these handmade holiday cards is that you can make both Thanksgiving and Christmas cards in one sitting. Plus, this is a fun fold AND a one-sheet wonder. Goodness–lots of things to love about these handmade cards.

I want you to focus on the LAYOUT of today’s card more than the images I used because this card is just begging for so many stamp sets to be stamped on the front – the possibilities are endless with this design!

Ready to Create your One Sheet Wonder Cards?

It’s true, I created holiday cards today but check out that space! You must have tons of stamps that would fit in that space perfectly! And since these cards use only 3 sheets of cardstock in total, you can make lots of them at one time and stamp images as you go.
