Handmade Christmas Cards

These are the hand-made Christmas Cards that I gave away to my family and friends here in Michigan. I made these card several weeks ago when there was yet no snow. I picked up some grass and glued it on the card paper. I crushed some egg shells, glued it on and served as snow. I added some color glitter glue, too. All writings are hand-made. I just love doing hand-made greeting cards. I just want to make them (the receiver) feel special.

This used to be my life back in the Philippines with my best friend, Ann. We had our hand-made greeting cards placed on few bookstores on a consignment agreement. We made a good sale on that. We even had international sales, too. :)

Like you, I make my own card design and print them, and give them away.

You know, if you join an art and craft group usually they have a show and sell their crafts. You are very creative.

Happy Holidays, Grace.
