It's hard to find Yule greeting cards commercially, and often when you do locate one you like, they can be expensive. Because there's not a huge market for Pagan or Wiccan greeting cards, sometimes it's just easier to make your own. With a little imagination -- and a couple of kids to help out if possible -- it's really easy to make stylish Yule cards that your friends will love. You can make a couple of different kinds of cards, depending on how much time you have, and your level of craftiness.
Before you get started, make sure you have craft supplies on hand. Things like card stock in a variety of colors, stamps, paint, ink pads, and markers will all make it easy to create your own cards. Glue, paste and glitter are useful too.
Rubber Stamp Greeting Cards
You'll need card stock in the colors of your choice, an ink pad, a rubber stamp with some sort of Yule theme to it -- sun, pinecones, a stag, even Stonehenge -- and a paint marker or calligraphy pen. One the front of your card, use the rubber stamp and ink pad to create a Yule design. On the inside, use the paint marker or calligraphy pen to write a simple Yule greeting, such as Solstice blessings from our family to yours or May the light of the Sun shine on your family this Yule season.
