Although the days of sending handmade Christmas cards to friends and family are gone, it is still possible to personally craft cards to give to loved ones using what technology has to offer! Creating a Christmas card from scratch is pretty easy actually. All you need is a little imagination and the knowledge of a few Photoshop tips and tricks which I will now share with you

Step 1: Let us begin with creating a new file. While opening a new file choose the A4 canvas size preset to get the right dimensions for the card. Once you’ve clicked on OK, unlock the Background layer by double clicking on it in the Layers tab. Also, create a new layer.
