The Printable Santa Card Pattern can be used in two ways. You can either trace around it onto coloured card or use it as a colouring sheet to cut out and assemble after you’ve coloured it in.
It’s always lovely to receive handmade greeting cards and gifts isn’t it? I prefer them to shop bought any day! If your family is anything like mine then you keep as many of your kids homemade cards as you can. I can’t believe that my mum still has some that I made for her when I was about 4 years old!
So download your free Santa card pattern and have fun getting creative. These handmade Santa cards are sure to delight everyone lucky enough to receive them. If your kids make them I wouldn’t be surprised if they get kept as keepsakes to treasure in years to come!
