I was certain I wanted to make some Christmas cards even though going back to work has made time even more limited. Using the same sketch/template makes this job a bit more easier and quicker. Of course it does get a little tedious but I spiced up the job by using different papers and ribbons.
As you can tell all I needed were blank cards, white paper and colorful papers, ribbons, embellishments, some black ink and a Christmas stamp.
I’m not happy with the quality of the picture but I am still without my camera. It’s in repair and I just have my phone’s camera. Oh well…
I wrote a quick Christmas greeting in the cards with my ZIG Calligraphy pen. This pen is great. I prefer a pen with calligraphy tip especially when writing Christmas greetings. Fits with the mood. The ZIG pens have a great vaierty of tips to choose from. In this case i used the 2.0 calligraphy tip. never underestimate a good pen. They are a rare form.
Of course after enjoying the moment of getting all the cards done I noticed that I was still missing a few. Tonight is the last stretch then. Just for the fun of it, I will not make these cards the same. Let’s see what I come up with.
p.s. Have you got your Christmas cards done yet? Do make at least a few. They really do cheer your loved ones. It is such a rare thing to get something else then an invoice now a days in the mail.
