Christian Christmas Card
Every year I hunt for the perfect Christmas card and usually end up with something far from perfect. Christmas cards with a Christian message seem to be poorly designed and somewhat cheesy. One night the idea struck me– why not team up with a designer and create Christmas cards that include a bible verse and a powerful message. That’s how Stamp Not Included was born.
Friend and designer David Siglin and I teamed up to create Christian Christmas Cards. We choose to donate $2 from every sale to the Frazee Dream Center, a really great program in Greenville. The Frazee Center is an after school and summer program for under resourced children. The leaders of Frazee are passionate Christians with a heart for children.
So if you’re looking to spread Christ’s love this holiday season, pick up some Christmas cards in our Etsy shop. A pack of ten is only $12. Merry Christmas!
There are so many things I love about Christmas (Celebrating Jesus’ birthday, giving gifts, sugar cookies and putting up decorations.) There are some things I don’t like about Christmas. (Seeing Christmas decor in October, overwhelming consumerism, fruit cake and taking down the decorations.) And then there are some traditions that I have a love-hate relationship with. One of those is Christmas cards. I love the idea of a hand-written note with a personal message that spreads love and friendship. But actually sitting down to write those notes takes time, a good pen and a strong hand.
I managed to talk Tim into helping me write out the Christmas cards this year. I think it was the fact that I suggested we do it at Starbucks. The cool thing (or at least one of the cool things) about my husband is that he’s not the type to just sign his name on every card and leave the note writing to me. He actually wrote out about half the cards and even though I’m supposed to be the writer in this marriage, Tim’s notes were often funny and always personal. I guess I discovered another awesome thing about marriage- it cuts Christmas card writing in half.
