Christmas Paintings - Ready for our Christmas Cards

Christmas is approaching and we have been preparing our Christmas cards.  Here are three paintings all ready for photographing into a card format, we've even left the snow on the bottom for our Greeting.

If you want to send out your own Christmas painting just take a decent photograph.

Tips for a great photo:

  • Wait for an overcast but bright day to avoid the shadows.
  • Have the angle at exactly the same angle as the picture so that you don't distort the image.
  • Take a photo with a lot of space around to allow for cropping the edges.
  • Edit to match as near as possible the colour of the painting.

3 ways to create a Christmas card:

  • Once you have a photograph you can enter it into a software package like Word or Publisher.  Save as a pdf file for the local printer to print.
  • Print and surface mount onto card stock, use a sticky fixer (3D) or double sided tape to fix.
  • Upload your photograph to a photo printing site such as Vistaprint, they have card templates and it is easy if you follow the steps.  You sometimes have to adjust the size and often can add a greeting on the front and inside.
