Colorable Christmas Cards in the Color the Carols BIG COMBO

Colorable Christmas Cards in the Color the Carols BIG COMBO Christmas Gift SetThe Color the Carols BIG COMBO is a sensory experience that focuses on coloring and listening. This COMBO includes a colorable Christmas card, in addition to a Christmas-themed, adult-friendly coloring book. This post addresses some of the questions asked about the Christmas cards included in the BIG COMBO.

  1. 1. How many Christmas cards are in each BIG COMBO?
    The BIG COMBO packs are created by including ONE A2-sized colorable card from a set of my Christmas designs. Although the theme is still Christmas, these designs are not repeats of what you will find in the COMBO’s COLOR the TRUMPET CAROLS Christmas coloring book. Each BIG COMBO has a randomly selected card design, so there is no way to guess which card is in your pack until you open your package.
  2. Is there a message inside the card?
    Each card design incorporates a Christmas-focused scripture on the front, and the card is left blank inside so you can add your own personal message. The designs are easy to color, so feel free to pass the coloring task on to one of the younger members of your household, if you don’t have time to fill the card with color. You might even twist the little someone’s arm to write the message inside for you. Seeing your child’s handwriting in a greeting card can make the experience of receiving a card in the mail an extra special experience for a loved one.
  3. “What will the design on this mystery card look like?”
    I thought it best to let the set of six designs speak for themselves. Two of the six designs are in landscape format, and four are portrait styled designs. There are angels, Mary with the baby Jesus, word play abstract designs, the wise men, and a three-panel nativity scene. The COLOR the CAROLS BIG COMBO will only contain one randomly selected, colorable card. If you would like to purchase the complete set of cards, they are available from my ETSY store. (I packed six designs in the set, so the whole family could sit around the kitchen table and color together. If your family has more than six members, order a couple of packs, invite the neighbors, and turn it into a coloring party. Or cut costs by printing a set of colorable cards on your home printer. )

  1. My granddaughter is six. Would she be able to color the Christmas cards? They look a bit detailed for a child. I am looking for something my five grandkids (six and older) can do together one evening.

    • Some of the cards are more detailed than others, Ms K. I recommend heading over to Zisubu Artique to take a closer look (via the picture gallery) at the pack of Christmas cards from which your COMBO’s card will be selected. If your granddaughter finds the small spaces too intimidating, try turning your coloring party into a tag team activity. Have the younger children color the large areas and then pass the cards to the older children to fill in the small details. This way, no-one feels left out, and everyone gets a chance to contribute to the final “product”. It’s also a good idea to get everyone who added color to the card to sign their names on the back of the card – just like a professional artist would. (Feel free to contact me if you would like a customized card design for your family. When time allows, I do take commissions.)

    • The cards included in the COMBO fit an A2 envelope (one envelope supplied with each card). An A2 envelope measures approximately 5.75 inches wide by 4.37 inches high, which complies with letter mail standards in USA. It can go in the mail as long as you affix the correct stamp (use a 1 oz stamp, unless you plan on adding a lot of extra papers to the envelope) to the front of the envelope. According to USPS.com, letter mail standards are stated as follows: a. Not less than 5 inches long, 3-1/2 inches high, and 0.007-inch thick. For pieces more than 4-1/4 inches high or 6 inches long, or both, the minimum thickness is 0.009. b. Not more than 11-1/2 inches long, or more than 6-1/8 inches high, or more than 1/4-inch thick. c. Not more than 3.5 ounces (First-Class Mail letter-size pieces over 3.5 ounces pay flat-size prices). d. Rectangular, with four square corners and parallel opposite sides. Letter-size, card-type mail-pieces made of cardstock may have finished corners that do not exceed a radius of 0.125 inch (1/8 inch).
