My brand new Christmas card series “DARE TO BE DIFFERENT CHRISTMAS’ debuted this week at a holiday craft fair near my hometown. I’ve created scores of Christmas themed cards in the past, but last year, for some reason, I didn’t do anything new. However, this year, I just couldn’t resist something a little “out-of-the-ordinary.” I created three new designs featuring my watercolor and acrylic paintings. So I thought I’d share pictures of the fronts, along with the inside sentiments.
Also, I’m thinking about getting set up to sell my greeting cards online after the first of the year. I’d appreciate hearing from any of you out there who have online marketing experience. Do you have any advice — pro or con — about the different kinds of marketing venues such as E-Bay, Etsy, Personal E-Commerce Sites, etc.?
Hope you enjoy these three new designs. They were really fun to make.
Wishing you an out-of-the-ordinary,
Wishing you a holiday season
whirling and twirling with
loads of laughter and love!
Silent night …
Holy night …
Be still …
And know that I am God.

I like all three – but esp the text in the last one – and the pink value is fun in number one – and just for me – I’d take out the “loads of” for card two – not needed and a word that felt off (just my opinion)
And no experience with sales online but I would make these for sale right now! On Etsy or sell box sets on your site – this is when folks are thinking about cards / right?
I really appreciate your comment about the word “loads,” because I dithered back and forth about whether to insert it or leave it out. Sometimes it sounded better without it, and sometimes with it. So I appreciate your opinion. I’m going to re-think it again now. 🙂
I also appreciate the encouragement to start selling them online now. I do sell them locally, of course, but I’m not particularly knowledgeable about online selling, so I’ll have to wait until I can get some good council about what all responsibilities and pitfalls await me if I get into that arena. And I’m not sure about the up-front costs involved, so I’ve set that for a new year’s venture.
cool – and at first I liked it – with the “l” – but we will see what you end up with
I like the whizzy sunshine tree best of all!
I really like that one too, but, naturally, I have a hard time choosing a favorite.
