Christmas Cards

Postby Jodie » Sun May 18, 2008 2:17 am

I have started a photography course (you will all be sick of my pics by the time I am finished). I have posted quite a few in the photo thread if you want to have a look.

Seeing some of the clsoe ups that I have done, I am pretty sure that I can do some real close pics of beautiful Christmas ornaments and candles - that I can use to front Christmas cards.

I just can't wait to have a go at it. I might get some out, through the week and see how I go.

Homemade Christmas cards of any design are always the best, and your photos will make stunning ones Jodie!

Usually we are in the midst of Christmas card crafting prior to CIJ -- this year that all has to wait.

Anyone else working on their cards? :flake:

Your cards sound great Winterself. I love making Christmas cards but i must admit I do cheat. I buy the blank cards and matching envelopes and then just decorate them myself, with rubber stamping or embossing. I think you are really ambitious to make envelopes.

BTW, do you have a photo editing program like Paint Shop Pro? You could add Christmasy frames and borders!
