Christmas Cards!


So, I was recently making some Christmas cards for my family, and I was making them personalized, but on the computer.  I wanted to show you what I did.

Step 1:  With a photo editing program (I use PicMonkey),  take a Christmas photo, and edit it if you prefer.  This is going to be the front of the card.

Step 2:  Take the photo, and with a card program (I use Hallmark) select a blank card, and spread the picture on the front, covering the whole front of the card.

Step 3:  Now you have a really cool card!  Now, using your card program, write a nice note, and decorate with clip art.

This is a really fun way to make a card.  These are some pictures I've edited that you might put on your card.

You can personalize your card by putting the person's name on the front that you are making the card for.

It is nice to put something about Christmas on the front of the card.  You may also like to try typing Merry Christmas!

I hope this was helpful, and that you make your own Christmas cards for friends and family!  Have fun, and Merry Christmas!

I have written chapter 1 on "Agent J and The Great Attack," click here to see.

    1. I only know how to select a blank card on Hallmark, so I will tell you how to do it on there. On Hallmark (I have the 2009 version), click Art Studio. On the left side, where it shows the choices select Cards/Invitations. Then it will show which cards you can choose, click on the card you want. I like the Half-Fold Horizontal Borderless. I hope this helps you!
