With Christmas fast approaching, what better activity than to
make and paint your own Christmas cards. These are much much nicer than bought cards
that you can buy anywhere, they are much more personal and of course, much cheaper.
Think of the joy your family and friends will get from these personalized cards too, when they see the creativity that
you or your children have put into them.
Express yourself by personalizing your
painted Christmas cards with your own message, or verse printed on the inside.
You can even go to the expense of laminating it so the recipient can cherish it
If I still haven't convinced you to
have a go yourself then you could consider letting me do the painting for you
let me have the greeting and or message and I will print it on the internal page
for you at no extra cost.
Everyone loves to send Christmas cards to
the people we love the most. When it is Christmas season, most people buy their
cards from a local card shop to send to family and friends. However, available
now are specialist Christmas greeting cards in the form of hand crafted cards.
Instead of buying the pre-printed cards from the shops, you can create your own cards for
your beloved one and that will touch them deeper than the readymade cards.
One need not get scared hearing the words hand made or hand painted cards,
children do it all the time. They don't have to be works of art, simple and less
is usually best. Do not doubt your creativity, it's very easy to paint a Christmas card and it's
cheaper and economic too.
Nowadays many craft and fancy gift shops have a separate section for card making, so you can easily buy all the materials
you require to make and paint your Christmas cards. Try to develop your own
ideas and your loved one will be impressed by your originality. There's no
effort in presenting someone you love with a tatty pre-printed Christmas card
from a shop with words in them that never really express your real feelings
Having painted your picture on the
front of the card, all your attention should be given to the content of the
message you print or write on the inside. You don't have to be a poet but it
does have to be heart felt. Take it from me when they receive the card they will
be gobsmacked that you have gone to the trouble of making something that they
can treasure for many years.
If you feel you are unable to make your
own card you can of course get someone like me to paint one for you and let me
print your personal message on the inside at no additional cost. It's still hand
made/painted and it will have your own heart felt words in it so your loved one
will still cherish it.
Thank you for looking have a very Merry Christmas!!
