Make Your Own Christmas Cards

Store bought Christmas Cards are pretty but you can do so much more with your own personalized Christmas Card. Pictures of wreaths make gorgeous Christmas Cards!

Here are my 2012 Christmas Cards.
I love the way they turned out and hope you do too!!!

To get started this year I hung my HUGE Christmas evergreen wreath inside. Who says it has to be outside every year. I wanted my wreath to have an organic feel. I decided to use dried elements like lotus pods, pine cones and natural raffia fiber. (I painted the tips of the pine cones white to look like snow.) To glitz up the wreath I used bullion fringe and weaved it inside the wreath. I topped off the wreath with a shiny green and gold wire ribbon and added a bow for the top of the wreath. The finally touch was to add an adorable Mama Bear. Isn't she the cutest wearing her Sunday attire? I just love her floral hat and knitted sweater with silver buttons. I simply placed Mama Bear in the center of the wreath. 
You may use the pictures I posted for your own Christmas Cards (personal use) or you can make your own. 
(Add elements you love and your wreath will be spectacular.) 
Don't forget to take pictures at a distance and close up of your decorated wreath. Now you have your very own Christmas Cards to share with your family and friends. Add a pretty border of color (I used Picasa 3) and some text "Merry Christmas!" Now print out your pictures on card stock. Or glue your printer paper image to poster board and fold into a card.
 

Happy Crafting!
