I've also started my Christmas card line last night! There's four new cards, plus the two from last year! I didn't paint the originals of these cards on actual cards - just on watercolor paper. So, I'm not sure yet if I'm going to sell them as paintings, try to trim them down and sell them as note/postcards with an envelope....or just keep the originals for my own holiday decoration, and as gifts for family....so many decisions!
I don't have pictures of them yet, but I can tell you that two of them follow traditional colours (green and red), while the other two are not so traditional (pink and a 'candy' blue), but they're just as quite. The reason for the nontraditional colours, is because I know a good number of people who like Christmas, and all the snowy sparkly wonderfulness, but they don't like doing things traditionally, and so these cards are for them!
I'm still decided on the envelopes - normal plain Jane white? Matching colours? or nifty, ecofriendly brown-bag envelopes (they're thick and beautiful!)... and they can even - to a degree - be colour matched. There's also silvery envelopes that I could get too! Or metallic....oh, how to decide?!
As well, I'm trying to decide if I want to include stickers this year, to seal the envelopes. This of course first depends on my printers and what's available, and secondly if it would work with the system or not. I already have an idea what I would put on them if I did...
