Creative Christmas Trees for family Holiday Card
I am once again posting a card which I found at www.weareheavyduty.com, (we are heavy duty). This is a website hosted by the Sigler family. The whole Sigler family, Tracy, Mary, Paris and Mars. They show and talk about all of the creative things that they do throughout the year. One of those creative things is make fun, creative Christmas cards. I will be showing you all of their cards for the past 5 years over the course of the next week. This one is from 2005. This is what the Sigler family had to say about the making of it.
“For the 2005 Christmas card Paris suggested “trees.” As time was running out I continued to mention that we needed to get cracking on the cards. When I mentioned it one night at dinner everyone moaned. Frustrated, I said “you can make a tree out of anything!” Then, I grabbed the greens that were left in the salad bowl and quickly threw down a “tree.” I liked it so I got some dried cranberries for the garland and piece of pretzel for the trunk. Everyone got their trees done that night, with Mary’s being the most skillful, and time-consuming.
The backgrounds were removed and the trees were combined on a single white background. This time we had them printed at Kodak.
