3 things I like on a Christmas card

Morning everyone!

It is the time of year for sending and receiving cards, so what do you like to see on a card? No doubt, you will tell what you don't like too!

My absolute favourite is:

Post boxes! I love them!

Number two is probably angels.

Number three is a toss up between robins and glitter - I do like a bit of glitter on a Christmas card!

My worst are probably the ones that are of sprouts or something. I like sprouts but not on a card..... or those dreadful Happy Crimbo ones.

Over to you....

Elizabethd's Avatar Quite agree Faith, sprouts are the end.
I love trees, pretty decorated trees, or just plain ones. And holly wreaths too.

I really like to see contemporary cards-black and white photos type, particularly countryside scenes.

Any sheep and donkeys or farm scenes-have always loved these even as a child I used to save any cards that had them on!

Top of my list is the Robin. You can't beat the Robin on a Christmas Card

Definitely Robins

I also like ones that have been taken from religious fine art, and painting, particularly medieval or renaissance images.

Winter scenes are always good too, snow covered buildings, landscapes and so.

Angels (especially those lovely reproductions from medieval altarpieces)

Milkmaid's Avatar Love Robins, my father was called Robin, we used to receive 100's of robin cards at home
post boxes especially when set against snow

I actually wanted some sprout cards to send to customers, Tesco had some, but not my little local one
