Holiday Show and Share – Greeting Cards with Nativity Motif

The American Homemakers Holiday Show and Share

In this post I would like to share my nativity-themed Christmas cards. Each of the past several years I’ve bought virtually only Christmas greeting cards with a nativity subject. From the Christmas cards received I save the nativity ones and have displayed them as a group.

The cards are displayed on two red metal bows with clips for the cards. They are by Department 56 and I got them from the Book-of-the Month Club years ago.

Here is one hanger as used in 2007

This is the other hanger...

Friends, relatives and neighbors know of my preference for nativity cards and so I have gotten quite a few. Some of these cards have been framed.

This is a card from calligrapher Maria Thomas, which I put in a wood frame with a floral motif:

This card was from a student assistant:

I placed this lovely nativity card in a beautiful gilt frame which was a gift from my youngest sister.

Thank you for visiting today. Do visit Angie's blog for more holiday posts.
