It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…if looking like Christmas means the temperature is still warm enough to wear shorts!!! I seriously have got to move somewhere with some snow!!! Anyway, at least it looks like Christmas in my heart and soon in my living room. It definitely SOUNDS a lot like Christmas around here. Locally, one of the radio stations converts to Christmas music after Thanksgiving (although I’ve been streaming Christmas music via internet radio for the last few weeks already.
This year, I have been hard at work adding some new designs to the shop for my FAVORITE holiday of the year!!! I have several new Christmas card designs to show off today.
Personally, I am a big fan of cards that celebrate the TRUE meaning of Christmas and focus on Jesus…however, any of these designs can be made more secular with wording changes and the elimination of the Biblical references…so if that’s your thing, don’t be afraid to ask about wording changes:) And of course…I can always custom design a card to meet your individual needs…email me at email@example.com for more info and pricing questions.
So without further ado…here are my new card designs for 2012:

These Holiday and Christmas cards and more are available for purchase in my shop.
Picture taking recommendations:
When selecting a picture(s) for your Christmas cards…non cropped pictures are best. I can always zoom in and/or crop a photo, but I can’t zoom out. Even if the space on the card is square, it is better to send the full photo than crop your photo to a square and send it. This way, I can make sure the photo fits in the space correctly. Please also be aware of the background of the photo. Unless your photo is set purposefully with a specific background in mind (i.e. Christmas trees, outdoors, backdrop) simple blank backgrounds are best. Holding a white sheet behind your child or placing them in front of a wall painted with one color is better than snapping their photo with your TV or a car seat in the background. (Especially with cards like the second behold card that include wording on the actual photo.)
