How to make your Christmas post even more beautiful

Hand-written Christmas cards are still a quintessential part of Christmas for many of us, even in this era of WhatsApp and email, because they’re a personalised way to show appreciation for the ones we love. Your Christmas post will be even more beautiful if it’s delivered in lovingly designed envelopes. We show you some easy ideas below. You can easily achieve impressive results with edding’s gloss paint markers, especially when using metallic pens in gold, silver, copper or white on dark-coloured paper. You can choose from four different stroke widths, from very fine to approx. 4 mm, which makes the markers perfect for all kinds of decorative ideas.
