One of my holiday traditions each year is sitting down for an afternoon (or two) to make the cards I’ll send to friends and family across the country. It would be far quicker to pick up a box at the nearest store, but I always enjoy adding the special little touches that make them unique and I hope the recipients appreciate the extra effort.
This year the names on my holiday card list include a few of the folks I’ve had the good fortune to get to know online through twitter and blogs. As I sat down to make my cards I thought it would be fun to design a silly naughty or nice themed one, and with the permission of the card’s recipient I’m sharing it here with you:
The inside of the card sported spots for two stickers, one which read “naughty” and one which read “nice” along with instructions to select the sticker which best describes the card sender and affix it to the “reply card” on the front. As you can see, the nice sticker has been selected, with only the naughty one still remaining.
The front of the card was designed to be a fill-in the blank style, which the recipient could fill out and send into Santa, making a report on the person who had sent the card. Since I’m such a helpful girl, I took the liberty of filling out the card before sending. I’m sure the recipient appreciated my attention to detail and efficiency*:
* I sent this card to Dev who has indeed confirmed that he thinks I am a very good girl who deserves lots of lovely presents. Well, the words he used might have been slightly different, but I’m sure that’s what he meant.
