12 Days of Book Blogmas: Day 2 – Christmas Card Exchange


On the second day of Blogmas my blog designer gave to me… well… nothing yet… but I’m hoping.


I am still completely unprepared for this challenge and this holiday season. I am a terrible designer and the thought of today’s topic made me cringe. IT MADE ME CRINGE.

But as this is an elective and I’m not being forced to participate, I am trying to bootstrap myself into this event’s festive nature.

If you haven’t heard of this awesome holiday event, be sure to check out Parajunkee’s blog post for more details. And for just a quick peek at the schedule for the next 12 days, here’s the amazing graphic she designed.


The Christmas Card

Let me state this for the record: I AM NOT A DESIGNER. I am also not great at going online to grab some code that I can use to embed a pre-made animated card. Thirdly, I am not particularly fond of animation on websites.

So, of course that means I’ve opted to try my hand at designing a card and animating it. Woo hoo!

Here’s the end result of three hours worth of purchasing stock, creating layers, watching videos, downloading trial versions of programs I don’t have .

What do you think?


And I know we’re supposed to tag people who we’d like to receive this card, but as I said I AM NOT A DESIGNER and I’m too embarrassed to tag anyone. So I’m just putting it here on the site to look like an idiot in front of everyone.
