You can send personalised Christmas greeting cards by making your own with die-cuts, rubber stamps, or designer paper. Make a photo season greeting card by adding a photo of yourself, your family or your pet. Homemade Christmas greeting cards are definitely so much better than Christmas e cards or even store bought paper greeting cards.
For me, I just love Christmas. It's the season to celebrate. It's the season to exchange warm greetings. Most of all, it's the season to remember the birth of Christ and the reason for His coming into this world. That's why I never use the word 'Xmas' for it crosses out Christ in the celebration.
Anyway, I usually begin making my cards in October or November. Even so there was a year when I couldn't finish all of them. So it is better to start early and have time to leisurely create all your cards. (Want me to send you a card?

Choose your theme. Is it going to be a traditional theme this year: Red and Green with Gold Trimmings? Or is it a Black And White Christmas?
