Christmas is less than a month away! Steven and I will be celebrating our first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs. this year. I can't remember the last time I was this excited for December 25.
I'm ashamed to admit that we didn't decorate a Christmas tree last year. I was busy planning our wedding and we agreed to sit out Christmas 2015.
So, when November 2016 rolled around, I was itching to decorate our home, design our Christmas cards and shop for Christmas decorations.
We used our wedding guest address list for our Christmas card recipient list. While planning our wedding, Google Drive became my best friend. I highly recommend utilizing Drive for notes, articles, blogs, spreadsheets and more. It's convenient having the docs and files at my fingertips when I'm away from my Mac.
Warm closings end every letter or card with a nice and lasting touch. Use more affectionate closings when writing your Christmas cards so your recipients can feel the Christmas cheer in full effect.
Wishing you joy,
Peace and love,
Grace and peace,
As always with affection,
Peace be with you,
Joy for your day,
Cheerfully in Christ,
For our Christmas card envelopes, I practiced brush calligraphy and pointed pen calligraphy. I love classic black ink paired with the 2016 Nativity USPS stamp.
Do you have any Christmas card traditions? Steven and I are looking to start traditions for the two of us. We'd love to hear yours and see your holiday cards and envelopes!
Recently, I joined two Facebook groups that have made a huge impact on my calligraphy and graphic design.
The Rising Tide Society and Modern Calligraphy Summit Facebook groups are like hidden gems.
The groups are full of knowledgeable, helpful people who share the same passions I do.
With the help of other graphic designers, artists and members of the group I was able to revamp the BH Calligraphy logo for new business cards.
I ordered my cards from Vistaprint, which is currently offering a 50% discount on business cards.
