Crafty Christmas: Handmade Cards - Xacto Cuts/Die-Cuts

Cardstock of various colors
Xacto knife

Step 2: Cut it out.

Step 3: Glue in contrasting cardstock to make the piece come to life (and to hide all your mistakes that may or may not be showing on the inside ....

No, but it's really that simple. Easily my favorite, the tree has all the elements of a good homemade card. The rest look pretty amateur to me, but I don't really care. It shows I tried. And if you're wondering what happened to two of the cards in the first picture, it's just word cut-outs and none yo' bizzness.
