How to Make a Comic Card - A Christmas Crafts Idea

Last week I made a Christmas Comic Card but this time I am doing some KAIZEN! Kaizen is a Japanese word I learned when I was working in a Japanese company. It means "continuous improvement". A.K.A making life better or easier the next time around!

If you missed the first blog post, check it out here and you'll see what I mean. (I even switched up the adjectives. Go kaizen!)

How to Make a Comic Christmas Card

This tutorial describes how to make it in words and in videos. All the materials and steps are bullet listed so following it is easy. Great idea for Christmas crafts. Kids and adults alike will love it! Without further ado, let us dive in to how I made this Christmas themed Comic Card 2.0!

The Card

Guy waving made of stickers saying "we heard you couldn't make it to the Christmas party"

Friends saying "so we brought Christmas to you!"

The Christmas Kit above is from the Christmas Kit Printable #1 here.

If print and cut is not your sauce, here are some links for pre-cut stickers you can use to make a card like above.

Oh, and don't forget the SPEECH BUBBLES stickers.

Materials

I used the following materials.

Materials for the christmas comic cards

  1. Christmas Kit #1 Printable from Lines and Grace
  2. 2 Comic Cards (1 panel on card front and 1 panel each inner card spread)
  3. Color pens/markers

    Yes, only 3 materials! How easy is that?

    Step by Step Guide

    With 3 materials, there really isn't any complicated steps to get this done. In fact it is so easy, you've probably figured it all out already.
    All you need is your creativity and color away to your heart's content!
    Let me show you how easy it is to create a Christmas Comic Card for something new this Christmas.
    1. Make your little story skit.
    2. Print out the Christmas Kit #1 Printable if you went the printable way. If not, you can skip this step.
    3. Cut out the Christmas Kit #1 elements you want on your card. If you did not use the printable kits but went the sticker way, skip this step.
    4. Stick the elements to your story skit on the front page and inner page.
    5. Color them in!
    6. Glue the front and inner card together.

     

    It's that simple.

    My 3 piece tips and tricks for you

    • Make sure you have enough space for the speech bubbles before you stick your people in.
    • To make your art look 3D, I started with the elements farthest from the viewer. Also I stuck the smaller looking objects first and had the bigger looking object overlapping them a bit (I kind of made 1 mistake though. Did you see it?).
    • For coloring, I didn't color everything in to leave highlights. But then again, that's personal preference and coloring style. Feel free to color however you want!
