When my family first moved from southern California to Utah, our son had just turned two and we were excited and a little apprehensive about moving to a place with a real winter... you know, the kind where it snows and the temperature might go below 50°!
I wanted our holiday card that year to reflect our new home and I thought of the card I sent in 2008. We didn't have an opportunity to take any family photos, so I created a watercolor painting of the three of us and printed them on watercolor paper on my trusty HP printer.
For the back, I just happened to take a lovely photo of our son admiring an ornament on my grandmother's Christmas tree a few weeks before Christmas. It worked!
I totally scrounged together whatever pieces of scrap card stock I had to print these too. Some had purple card stock, some had navy blue, some had a lighter blue. And I just changed the color of the text on the back to fit with the card stock. I even used leftover envelopes I had from a previous project.
It was created last minute and in a bit of a rush, but it's still one of my favorite holiday cards that we've mailed.
