Burns Family Christmas Card 2017 - Behind the Scenes

The Christmas Card It is that time of year once again when everyone sends out Christmas cards to friends and family. Including us. Over the last few years, we have had lots of fun creating our Christmas card. We choose not to rely on standard store-bought cards or photo website templates. No, we would rather create our own. So if you can’t get a good look at it in the above photo, here is the Christmas card for this year, both front and back:

Burns Family Christmas Card 2016 - Behind the Scenes

Over the past few years, we have made a tradition of sending out Christmas cards to friends and family. But not just any Christmas cards. We decided to make our cards unique, something that you wouldn’t see from anyone else. That takes a little bit of work, but it is worth it in the end. Especially when someone tells you how much they liked your card. I think that this year’s card was our best effort yet.

Burns Family Christmas Card 2015 - Behind the Scenes

After last year’s fun Christmas Card, we knew we had to do something at least as good for this year. I kicked around ideas in my head for a while, to see what I could come up with. Laura had suggested something perhaps related to our cruise from this past summer, and so we eventually ended up with a beach theme. First up, we had to get a group photo. So while last year we had bundled up in winter coats on a somewhat warm day, this time we put on our beach t-shirts and sunglasses on a cold day.
