As much as I would love to, I can’t send everyone I know a Christmas card. I’m pretty sure that would require a lot of money and a lot of hand cramps from writing addresses. So here is my way to share one with everyone.
*This tutorial was done with GIMP.*
Open up a new document with either a plain white or transparent background. A cover photo for Facebook is 815×351 pixels.
Find a fun background and open it as a new layer. Adjust as needed. The background I used is actually a freebie iPhone background from Design Love Fest.
Find the picture you want and open it as a separate window. This way, you can crop it.
Once the picture is cropped, copy and paste it into the FB cover window. Resize/rotate as needed.
Now add text making sure to leave plenty of space in the bottom left corner. This is where your profile picture overlaps.
I also added a little washi tape for fun! The washi I used is from Pugly Pixel.
Now save and upload!
Merry Facebook Christmas!!
