It’s the time of year, when I start creating Christmas cards for the new holiday season. This is the front of the very first card for the 2021 Christmas season. I think I’m going to leave the inside of this one blank so the sender will have plenty of room for his own personal message or even a short note. I did the original work in watercolor, and then turned it into prints for the cards.
Each year I create a few new Christmas card designs to sell. This year I’ve decided on two for sure, and I may have two more by next week. We’ll see. But I thought I’d share the two that are definite.
This first one is an original ink sketch cover, and the inside message reads:
“Wishing you a safe, warm, peaceful Christmas.”
The second design is original watercolor on the front cover. And the inside message reads:
“It’s Christmas —
A time to remember Jesus and all He’s done for us —
and because of what He’s done — to be happy.
WISHING YOU THE HAPPIEST CHRISTMAS EVER!”
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.
CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!
LET’S PAINT US SOME CHRISTMAS CARDS!!!
