One of my annual holiday traditions is creating our family Christmas card. In the last couple of days, I have drawn and copied, cut, folded and stacked all of the parts that will be ready to glue and assemble. With around 24 hours into this art project, I would guess that I am just about half way to finishing them. I am hoping to make 90 cards. I know. I am ridiculous.
This year’s card is another pop-up, meaning there will be folded paper inside that will have some dimension after opening. Last year, I added beads and half of the envelopes were returned before Christmas with postage due. Ugh. This year, I avoided any extra dingle dangles that would mess up the otherwise timely delivery.
Last year’s card. Those beads cost me!
Another pop-up from two years before.
I thought it would be fun to run a contest for those of you interested in receiving one of my homemade cards. No matter what your faith or how you celebrate, this is a card made with lots of love for you!
All you have to do is guess what my family is doing in this year’s illustration.
In the past, I have drawn my family participating in all kinds of holiday and everyday activities. Click here to see more examples of my cards to give an idea of what we may be doing.
One guess per person. If you guess more than once, I will only take the first one. My husband Danny will draw from a hat if there are more than five winners.
I will announce the winners on Friday, December 14th. I will post a link to your blogs too!
I have to go back to work. Really!
Do you send holiday cards to your family and friends?
I hope you will consider following my Wild Ride!
The contest is over, but you can see the finished result and the contest winners here!
