Nothing is better than Christmas than crafting! Let’s combine the two and make a couple gorgeous gold accented Christmas cards. These aren’t all specifically for Christmas so whatever holiday you celebrate you should be able to use a couple of these cards.
I used a few different Darice products to create my cards. Some were conventional paper crafting things and some were used in a little unconventional ways. I tried to think outside of the box just a little bit. Hopefully it will get some of your juices flowing!
Gold Christmas cards supplies:
- Blank Darice Cards & Envelopes or Cardstock
- Darice Small Laser Cut Christmas Wood Shapes
- Eyelet Starter Kit with Tool
- Gold Spacers
- Silver Chain
- Joy Card
- Happy Holidays Card
- Merry Christmas Card
You’ll see a couple things pictured below I also got but didn’t use on these exact cards. I have plans to use them in the future!
I used a sticker maker to make these little wood cut Christmas figures into stickers. They turned out amazing! The sticker maker made it simple and less messy. Win win!
The most unconventional thing I used was jewelry findings! The “ornaments you see here are actually jewelry connectors! Chain was used as their ‘hooks’. I placed the rings where I thought they’d look best then added some super glue to the back and placed them there for about 5 minutes.
I then measured some chain. It’s always better to over estimate than underestimate! I put the super glue in a straight line and placed the chain down. I let the glue dry and was all done.
This last embellishment is a scrapbooking staple but usually used to connect two things together. I decided to use it as gold snow flakes. These are really fun to use but you can ruin your card if you’re not working on the correct surfaces.
Here you can see one that is complete on the left and one that is not pushed in on the right. The directions are pretty simple and explanatory on the packaging! I just suggest doing the initial hole punch on carpet, then finishing the eyelets on a hard surface.

I don’t think style has to be sacrificed for price! I love creating DIYs that don’t look homemade and look deceptively expensive. Practical and Pretty began because I said ‘I could make that!’ so often that I decided to finally do it, and document my process.
