There are two different kinds of Christmas card givers: those who would put Hallmark out of business with their DIY Christmas cards, and those who just buy ones from a store. Either way, it’s the thought that counts. I used to begrudgingly sign a store-bought card when prompted by my mom, usually yelling at me to sign the card already, but now I put my own DIY touches on my Christmas cards. Writing a heartfelt note in a Christmas card is probably one of the most anxiety-inducing things one can do. You don’t want to be too sappy, but you want to be original and fun. It’s a lot like writing a letter. I know many people don’t write letters now, but the thought behind the words is what makes a letter special.
I like to think of a card as a mini present of sorts. It’s what’s on the inside that counts, but you still want the outside to look good. Are you going to draw something on the front, paste a collage of pictures of you and the person, or attach a clever saying or inside joke? Tis the season of giving, and everything counts.
Hopefully, if you have no clue how to go about tackling the art of the Christmas card, you’ll find some inspiration from our meme gallery. There’s something for everyone, from the family photo approach to the sarcastic saying.
