Christmas Card - DIY

It is less than 20 days until Christmas. This year I've decided to make a couple of Christmas cards myself. Plenty of the cards sold in shops have some text already written inside, which is not always convenient. All that's missing is just your signature. If you'd like to add more personalized text by yourself, it wouldn't fit there that well. Perhaps it's also a good idea to show the recipient that you invested a bit of time and effort to either write the wishes by yourself or make even the entire Christmas card.

In case you feel that drawing is not your thing at all, you don't need to feel down. Luckily the Christmas motives can be simplified to basic geometric shapes. Think of a Christmas tree. What does it remind you of when you are looking at it from a larger distance? A triangle.

As for colours, I still enjoy the traditional red, green, gold trio, although in comparison to the advent calendar, I selected rather different shades of red and green to make it mellower. There is one of the cards as a sneak peek. I'm going to film the Do It Yourself video. The link to it will be added here so that you can get inspired soon enough before Christmas to make your own Christmas cards or just have a look at other designs which I made for this year.
