Hand Painted Christmas Cards

Making family and friends feel special during the holidays is part of the magic of the season.  How about using your painting skills to show them you took the time to create something unique just for them?
Hand painting individual cards will do just that.

Take a quarter sheet and divide it in half. Fold the two sheets gently, and then using masking tape, secure them to your painting surface.  After completing your mini-painting, remove the tape, and voila!  You have a neat, crisp border.  All that's left is to write your personal greeting.

I use the inside of the card for the painting because I then use a small sticker to secure it again, and address the outside, saving the difficulty of finding an envelope to fit the card.  Only twice did the post office machine tear the little present.  I just painted another one and hand delivered it.

Get going now, because everyone will want one!
