Tonight's card is a variation on my one-layer red snowflake card. This time, I used a small, raised panel for the stamping. Love all the white on this one!
Generally speaking, I prefer Merry Christmas as a sentiment for the holiday cards I send, but I always like to have some secular cards on hand for the people on my list who I know are not Christian, and for years I made a Hanukkah card for my one Jewish friend. I was so sad the first holiday after she died, and I made some Hanukkah cards for the troops in her memory.
And isn't it sad that I have no other Jewish friends? I need to work on that.
The troops include all faiths and those of no faith at all, and so I'll make plenty of non-religious holiday cards to send to OWH. I'm not one to force my faith on others, but I expect to be able to express my faith freely and without prejudice. I allow others that same right, and don't blink or judge when I receive season's greetings. Heck, I'm just grateful somebody thought enough to send me anything at all!
What are your feelings about secular versus religious sentiments and themes on holiday cards?
