It’s sad to say, but greeting cards are becoming a thing of the past. The last year or two I have done the Holiday Mail for Heroes, sending cards to men and women serving in the military. This year my husband and I had a pretty good picture of us taken in Ireland (we don’t have our picture taken often), so I’m sending out a few photo cards. For several years I created either cards or a letter to send.
Some Christmas cards are so pretty, I hate to throw them away (OK, I'm a packrat anyway). There are a lot of good craft projects that can be made from them, not that I get many done. One year I took five cards that were alike and covered a painted paper-mache box with them. Another project was this subway art style “sign” I made from the signatures on cards from family members no longer with us.
