Show your Colors with Patriotic Christmas Cards

by Henry L. on October 15, 2009

Patriotic Christmas cards seem to be a new fad in sending holiday greetings. When you first look at design #307CW, Patriotic Dove Peaceful Holiday Card, the tranquility of the beautifully embossed white dove evokes hope for peace. The leaves from the olive branch are being scattered and sent to all who recognize that America will always have peace as its ultimate goal. I particularly admire the artist’s decision to use the stars and stripes as the background. The colors support rather than overwhelm the delicately etched bird. The finely gilded border is the perfect frame. I cannot envision anyone taking offense at the theme of this personalized Christmas card design; therefore, I would send it to everyone on my list.

The most important thing to know about design #511CW, Patriotic Wishes Greeting Card, is that you really need to see it to appreciate the dazzling effect of the gold stars on the dark blue ornament. Not only is the foil gold, but it is variegated, so the sparkle and hues that seem to move and change make it difficult to take your eyes away. The doubled red foiled ribbons symbolizing the stripes of our flag put the finishing touch on this unique design. There has never been a better time to show your “colors” than the season that elicits feelings of peace and joy to all mankind.

Great card! I love the subtle religious undertone. Let this serve as a reminder to all those who want to take “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance or “In God We Trust” off our money. And I agree – no one should be offended – unless of course you have a problem with peace or your country.
