I usually start dreaming up my Christmas newsletter around this time– mostly because I purchase all of the next year’s cards the day after Christmas the preceding year. Can’t beat the deals! And then I know how to make all my labels/letters match the themes of my store purchased cards. I personalize everything from the letter to the address labels. Usually this the only way some of the, non-Facebooking, older family/friends can keep up with my Hubs and my life. Here is a sampling of my work the past few years.
This was done by just finding clip art on the internet and then using a program to turn the words the correct way. I placed them on the envelopes vertically. They all mailed without any problem! I printed these on Avery clear labels— only put these on white envelopes if that is the look you want.
I like to create a different format for each one. I like the snowmen because I got to try my hand at digital graphic design. I typed in the message and attached a photo on the backside of me and Hubs.
