Last minute Christmas card in a snap tutorial

Hi there, Grandma Bonnie here with a "quick" tutorial...idea really.  Are you in a pinch for a "homemade" Christmas card.  I've got an idea that might save the day?
Check out your left over Christmas cards from years past and see if they are usable.  I always have a few cards left over and i thought the cards from this year would serve as a "special" card just by adding a digital image.
This is what i did:

1. I colored and scanned an image i did and printed it out multiple times for the amount of cards i needed to make.

2. Hand cut around your image leaving a bit of white outline.


3. Position it so it will "work" somewhere on your card.  In this case, attach the image to the inside of the card so that it lines up with the front of the card.


4. You've got a unique card using a cut out digital image with minimal work...YaY!


5. You can also use the digital image on top of a note card and use it as a card or punch a hole at the top and use it as a tag.
