When you decide to make your own Christmas cardsyou have made a very tough and busy decision. You have to come up with a theme, create the front of the card, come up with a greeting, sign and mail the card and not to mention, buy envelopes for the exact size you intend to make. The decision may have been a difficult one to make, but designing the card may take the most time out of your day.
You want to send the right message to your friends and family and you want to make sure to include everyone’s religion and preferences. But how? It may seem that the task is impossible. You should not think that way when you are trying to come up with a plan, it could only frustrate you.
Your mind should be clear and you should start with a list. Make the list include everything you can think of to make a great card. Include your themes and what you would need to make it work. Using embellishments that you don’t have around the house? Make the list including where you can find that particular item. When you are done with your list you can begin narrowing it down to a couple that you really like. If one doesn’t stand out to you ask your family to decide.
Be sure that the use of beautiful women figures is high on your list. The use of beautiful women figures is great for Christmas because it represents life and Jesus. You want the woman you use on your card to represent Mary, mother of Jesus. The whole reason we celebrate Christmas. The beautiful woman reminds people that without Mary we wouldn’t have Jesus and all of Christian life today.
When you decide what to use for your card, you may want to go shopping for the things you need once you have already looked at what you have at home. You do not want to buy the same thing twice if you already have some in your craft closet. Choose things you know you can use again if you have some left over. You may want to buy some foil just in case you decide to add stars or other fun extras to your card.
When you get home, choose the best place to start creating your cards. You will want a flat, dry surface to begin making the cards. You want to make sure there is no place a card could get wet or ruined. Take out your paper and cut it to the size of the card. Add your extras and your beautiful women figures if you wish, then continue until all cards are done on the front. Some may have some tiny mistakes, but if you make a big mistake you can’t cover up, throw it away.
Now you can write or print your message. If you choose to write it you may want to do the first version in pencil. If you choose to type or have it printed, do not fold the card until you get to the shop. If they can print for you, they will need the paper open and flat.
