It depends on how you want to have the end product look – do you want to mount the picture to the front of the card stock, or cut a window into the stock, which you would slip the picture into?

You will also have to decide what size cards you want – and what size envelopes you will need (you can either make or buy envelopes).

If you just want to mount the picture on the front of the card, I would recommend getting a scoring system from Martha Stewart. Its for sale at Michaels (might also be at AC Moore or JoAnn’s) and is about $20, but you can use a 40% off coupon on it. It comes with a grid and tools for scoring the paper so you get nice crisp line and folds. I use it TONS for paper crafts.

You can also make envelopes with the scoring board – it comes with directions on how to make them.

I made our cards this year too. I just cut the cardstock to the right size and rounded the corners. I bought wallet sizes of our picture. I wish I remember where I got them from b/c I did a lot of research to find the cheapest. I put a piece of paper behind the picture to make a border around it, and used this Martha Stewart punch to jazz it up a bit.

Then i just used a stamp to write “Happy Holidays” and a cute stamp with flowers on it (I’m Jewish so I didn’t want to go towards one holiday or the other). You could also put sparkles on it or ribbon or something.
