There are tons of great ideas on the Martha Stewart website actually--under Learn/Crafts. There are lots of good ones under Valentine's day and others that you can modify for the holidays.

I can't find the feature where this first appeared, but I love the idea of embroidered cards. They sell this kit and the pic will give you an idea of what they look like:

I don't see why you'd need the kit. Just get embroidery floss, card stock, and a needle, right? I might be ambitious and try something like this this year!

Good luck!

The new issue of ReadyMade has a section on embellishing stationery with a sewing machine -- like stitching zig-zags around the border and such.

Here's a link to the Martha Christmas cards.

I personally like the Ribbon Tree.  It doesn't get any easier than that.

Oh and the button snowman card.  I saw these premade at Target last year.

I'm making them out of old family photos.  I took them to kinkos, got them copied onto card stock, and then glued them onto black cards.  I also sewed a sheet of paper on the inside of the card to make it fancier.  

I have been big into holiday postcards as well, using the same idea.  cheaper, and less to write!
