With it being the time of year when all thoughts and deeds focus around Christmas, one of the holiday customs where this is appropriate would be the greeting card. While the option of sending electronic messages has some people moving away from the traditional physical mailing, there are still people on the contact list who might not, though it's hard to believe, own a computer. Creating a few cards for them can be done lickety-split
There are many tutorials online to show you how it's done, but the starting point to achieve it with minimal effort is a great festive background from an online graphic service such as Clipart.com, iCLIPART.com or Acclaim Images. Though there is a slight fee attached, these sites supply you with an endlessly diverse collection of content which you can use without any concern of copyright infringement.
