If you're still in the thinking of what you can do about your Christmas cards this year,
you need to move into action soon or you'll be out of time. Make this festive season particularly
special by painting your own Snowman Christmas cards
and send them out to family and friends.
Here's an idea of how to achieve your goal
Find a suitable design for your holiday greeting cards. Look on the Internet and in
old Christmas magazines, and any other Christmas related books for suitable
Christmas images and designs. You can also draw your design freehand if you have
plenty of imagination.
Purchase greeting card blanks, or make your own greeting cards from card stock paper.
Draw or trace your design onto the greeting card blanks with a pencil. Use a black,
fine-tipped permanent marker or paint pen to trace over the pencil lines. Allow markings to dry before painting.
Unfold greeting card blanks so that they lie flat on your work surface, with the drawn or traced design facing up.
The cards will be easier to paint if they are positioned this way.
Use watercolour or acrylic paints or other craft paints to colour the images on your note cards.
Allow paint to dry thoroughly before folding note cards.
Add any Christmas greeting or message to the inside of your cards.
If you have your own computer and printer then you can make your own insert page
for the card and print your message on the inside. If not you can write your message with a calligraphy pen or a black or metallic medium-point permanent marker.
I stick the insert page in with PVA glue on the fold.
I hope you enjoy the examples on this
page and that they inspire you to try painting your own cards. If you are too busy and cannot find the time to paint your own then I'll be
honoured and happy to paint them for you. Merry Christmas to you all!!
