Today – December 9th – is National Christmas Card Day. You would think that it would be something I already knew since I make cards but no. This is the first time I’ve heard of it.
CHRISTMAS CARD DAY – December 9th
Each year around this time, friends and families begin mailing their holiday cards. Christmas Card Day serves as a reminder to get your stamps, envelopes, and cards together so you can share your holiday cheer. Are you making your cards this year? I did not get cards made this year – well I got some made but not enough to send out to everyone. Since we moved I’m working on a photo card instead.
These days everyone mails a variety of cards at Christmas time. In our modern world of social media some just post online or send emails and messages but cards are still around too. There are handmade cards, store bought cards, photo cards, Christmas letters, post cards, business cards and even New Year’s cards. Just remember it’s a way to say “I’m thinking of you” no matter what form it comes in.
Here is a fun set of cards that I made with products from our Mini Catalog. These were really fun with non-traditional colors. Some of these products are on the LAST Chance List – so be sure to order them now before they sell out.
