Clip-Art Cards

You ought to be in pictures! And you ought to be in holiday cards, too. Making personalized greetings is a snap: All you need is a digital camera, our clip art, and a printer to create a few or a few dozen. These fun projects will have everyone on your mailing list smiling -- without even having to say “cheese.”


First, choose the clip art you want to use, then pose the subjects accordingly.
