12 Days of Holly Jolly Holidays: DIY Disney Cards

Good evening! As I sit on my couch near my Christmas tree, making a crafty surprise for my Secret Santa, I finally thought of the perfect way to kick off our 12-day holiday event! So curl up with a candy cane and some hot chocolate (liquor is optional) and get ready for some fun features until Christmas day!First, a little background:If you didn’t know, Michelle and I both share a love of making greeting cards. (In fact, you can check out some of Michelle’s fabulous creations here.) Every year before Santa comes to town, I make my parents and sister some Disney themed cards. I already have an idea for this year but since my parents do read this blog (hi guys!), I thought I would share just what I did last year.

As you can tell, this one was for my dad. I’m not sure why I decided to give him Epcot. (Perhaps it’s his love for the Rose & Crown in the UK.) I drew everything here myself, and used Zots to make it 3-dimensional.

I know many people don’t love the Sorcerer’s Hat, and frankly, I’m not the hugest fan. But it’s a lot easier than drawing the Chinese Theater! This one went to my sister, and not because I dislike the park. (Don’t get any ideas.) I love DHS and remember many happy nights wondering the park when our parents were long gone and it was just the two of us. (Awww.)

Last but not least, my mom. I drew that castle myself people! It took many tries! But I’m really happy with the way it turned out. I always feel like my mom is the ambassador of the magic. She just loves the Mouse and all he stands for so much. (The decor in their house proves it… believe me.)

Do you DIY Disney during the holidays?

  1. OMG! (and I never use that term!) These are fantastic!! That Spaceship Earth is the single greatest thing I’ve seen in a really long time. If someone gave me that for Christmas- my YEAR would be MADE. You are talented, woman! I’m so glad you shared these DIYs from years past…
