Sending out Christmas cards this year? Keep reading to see how calligraphy can give your Christmas card envelopes a special touch!

Its The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I love the Christmas season! All the beautiful music, decorations and general cheer! Its just lovely! I’ve procrastinated a bit this year on ordering and sending our cards out (who’s with me?!)- but that’s beside the point…. 🙂

Last year was my first year with my fancy new iPad and I thought, hey! I should design our Christmas cards myself. And hey! Wouldn’t it be nice to do postcards so that postage would be cheaper?? Great idea in theory- however, I didn’t know anything about bleed lines or file setup– soooo… I printed them and mailed them, andddd we got every single one of them returned in the mail as undeliverable. *sigh* So! This year I decided to play it a little safer and go with standard cards and envelopes.

No calligrapher worth her salt would send out envelopes without some type of fancy addressing right?? Since I’m running a bit short on time, and let’s face it, calligraphing envelopes is not a quick and easy job– I decided to do calligraphy names with block letter addresses. I’m happy to say that my cards are *almost* complete and ready to go!
