For our personal holiday card this year I wanted to incorporate a photo. We used this card not just as a holiday greeting but also an announcement of our news that we are expecting this coming July (now late June). I created the chalkboard prop and a friend of ours took the family photo for us. The challenge was trying to make it a complete piece without feeling that the chalkboard image and the graphic piece were too separate.
I am really happy with the end product and we are really excited about our upcoming arrival.
I also created matching Thank You notes for all the holiday gifts we received.
