I can't believe it, but it is about time to start thinking about sending out Christmas cards! This year's card is a really cute one even if I say so myself!
The process can be time consuming, but I start off by picking my reference photo. This one came from Pixabay.
Once finished with the pastel, I use my computer software and create a print in the appropriate size for the card. For these cards, the 4" X 5" print is printed on fine art paper creating a suitable giclée print for framing - making it two gifts in one - the card and the print!
The giclée print is then cut out and mounted with photo corners on 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card stock. As you can see there are a lot of steps in creating these cards and they can be time consuming but my customers love them!
Here is the finished 2020 Christmas Card. "He was born in a manger!"
