An Unusual Holiday Greeting Card

>> Monday, December 21, 2009

For the past few years, I have made it my personal goal to think up and produce a slightly more humorous Holiday Card. I think it's fun and unusual - my family? not so much. So, this year was a take on my idea of the "Ideal Family Portrait"... something you might have taken at Sears or JC Penney, with the backdrop of a fireplace or a snowy landscape.

Step 1: Started with a giant piece of green felt. Add the family with a self timing camera.




Step 2: Take your Photoshop, make everything green disappear and try out some different "cheesy" backgrounds.




Step 3: Make the family stand around in the front yard acting like crazy people in front of the neighbors.




And last: Upload your finished masterpiece to be printed and mail out to unsuspecting family and friends!



Merry Christmas everyone! Want to see more cards of my Christmas past? Take a look here and here.

You are so funny! That's what I love!
I bet you now have a reputation among your friends and family so they wonder "what will they do THIS year..."
