You don't need to be an expert artist to make your own Christmas cards. What could be better than a greeting card that someone has created especially for you? Don't worry about making it perfect. If you're not very crafty, a great option is to buy a picture-frame greeting card. Card-making is very popular, so they're easy to find. You can also find pre-cut blank cards that you can draw directly onto. Small sized watercolor paper trimmed and folded also works well. For a contemporary themed Christmas greeting, you could create a Manga Christmas Card. While Shinaebi has chosen a traditional red-and-green Christmas color scheme, you can easily adapt this design to suit your own personal style.

Candles are a popular traditional motif, so here's an article on how to Draw a Candle Flame in colored pencil. For best results, use a good quality paper and don't be afraid to put down plenty of color.
