I love making Christmas Cards!! I first went to the Graphics Fairy http://thegraphicsfairy.com/ site and then picked out a vintage children's trading card. I then saved it to my photo program and printed it out (9 on one page) wallet size. Next I cut them out and pasted them on card stock.
Blank cards and envelopes were purchased at A.C. Moore Craft store. I used a glue stick to glue them to the cards. Then I took my colored pens and drew a little decoration on each one, Holly leaves, lamplight, etc. If you cannot draw, use stickers.
The last one I added a strip of ribbon to it, a satin button and a little white bow with a pearl in the middle. You can find these little bows in the bridal section of craft stores.
The last one I cut the little girl figure out completely. On all the cards, I used pens to accent the outline of her dress, etc. I swiggled some lines to look like snow and used a white pen to put the snow dots on the cards. I then drew a matching element on the envelopes. Again, you can use stickers if you cannot draw. Walmart has a nice variety of stickers from $1.00 a set up! If you have any questions, please ask! Hope you will make some cards and have fun doing it as I did!
