"I created these blank greeting cards out of my own illustration hand drawn and scanned from my children's book. I send these cards out to thank people who buy my book which supports a local charity. The quality is excellent, the colors are bright and the envelope and card are sturdy. I am happy to send out these high quality, beautiful cards to my generous donors and will continue to create more!"
"Came out super nice, everyone loved getting them"
"I had a $25 gift card to Shutterfly so thought, yes it's only June but what better time to get ahead of the game and order holiday cards for Christmas/holiday season. Shutterfly was so easy to use, not to mention the selection of card backgrounds available. Prices were great as there was a 40% discount going on too. I ordered them and within days they were in my mailbox. When I opened the package I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the cards were. Excellent quality as far as paper and color. I would highly recommend them to anyone!"
"Have yet to find anything in Shutterfly's collection that I don't like. They are great!"
"Love the cards & loved getting them on sale!"
If you're a religious person, it can be difficult to retain the true meaning of Christmas when you're swallowed up by the most commercial aspects of the season. While sending out religious Christmas cards and setting up a nativity scene can help get you and your loved ones in the right frame of mind, here are three additional ways you can make the holiday more meaningful.
Spending time with the people you love most is the very best way to make Christmas more meaningful. Carrying out fun and inspiration holiday traditions is one of the easiest ways to make holiday memories that will last. Some ideas include Christmas caroling, taking miniature Christmas trees to tenants in assisted living homes, and reading the original Christmas story around a warm fireplace.
It can be fun to shop for fancy home décor and decorations, but it is even more fun and meaningful to spend time creating your own Christmas decorations each year. Hop online with your family and choose your favorite photographs to place on customized Christmas ornaments, or cut out homemade paper snowflakes and hang them around your home. You can also make your own Christmas countdown chain with circles of colored paper stapled together like links in a chain. Remove one link each day to count down the remaining days until Christmas.
Cultivate the spirit of giving in your own home by donating your time or money to charity. You do not have to limit your giving to local soup kitchens or strangers in need. You can also prepare useful gifts for people you know who are struggling. A warm personalized blanket could be the ideal gift for a neighbor who recently lost his job or a single mother who recently moved into your area. Pair your gifts with inspiring religious Christmas cards for the most heartwarming effect.
