One of my favorite things about the Holidays is to look at all of the wonderful holiday photo cards we receive. I enjoy looking for family resemblances and seeing how people change from year to year. We always pick a few "winners" each year... Best Photo, Funniest Photo, etc. As a mother of three, I know how elusive a GOOD holiday photo can be so I truly appreciate *all* of the photo cards we receive.PHOTO TIPS
To inspire your creativity, I asked the 'Muses' to share some of their favorite Holiday Photo Card ideas with you throughout the week.
This first round of cards are simply made from an A Muse 4-Bar note-card. This is a fast and easy solution for creating photo cards. You can either print your own custom-sized photos using your home computer or have them printed for you. I like to use wallet-size prints from Costco. They are inexpensive, the size fits perfectly on a 4-bar card and they are ready in 12 hours or less!
Jennie created a window for her card using the Marvy Giga Scallop Oval and the Mega Oval punches. I love how you can see the adorable faces of Jennie's children through the window. Inside the card, she stamped Holly Jolly Christmas below the photo for a nice finishing touch.

I love this simple card from Lori. She has a nice family photo, simply mounted on the front of the card. The elegant tree with the message joy, love, peace sends such a warm message. And, the little star twinkle sticker at the top of the tree is the perfect finishing touch!

Sherry created THREE fabulous photo cards for you. Today, I am sharing a fun card with a photo of her beautiful pup. I like how Sherry created a patterned background using our Madeira stamp. She then stamped, cut and colored our elegant ornaments and added them for extra holiday appeal. If my girls do not cooperate for a photo this year, I may send photos of our kitties instead because I KNOW they will cooperate.
