Card Ideas for Children
Child Drawing at Home
If your kid is good at drawing, then he can draw something on a card.
Give him a 5x4 inches folded card. You can ask him to draw anything he likes such as flowers, scenery, cartoon characters, unique geometrical designs, sketches or anything that inspires him. Another creative idea is to draw 3-4 small drawingsbordered with colorful sketch pens and then paste them creatively on the card to make it look more attractive.

Make sure to leave a little space on one side of the photograph. You can use this space to write a sweet message or draw some designs.
Desk Calendar
Why throw away old calendars? They have beautiful images on each page.
You can use either a wall or desktop calendar. Choose just one image and make it a part of your card. You can use ribbons and bows to decorate the empty space.
Christmas Tree

Stick the larger tree on the Christmas card and then glue the smaller tree over the large one. This will give a shadowy effect to the tree. Then, decorate it with glitter and sequin. Also, draw stars and bells in the empty space and fill them with more glitter. Write a cute Christmas message to finish it off.
