I hope all is well! Tonight, I finally finished my Christmas cards! I just finished stuffing them in envelopes, addressing them and stamping them, all 50 of them. I can not wait to take them to the post office tomorrow and send them out. I have never made my own Christmas cards before and I have to say I really enjoyed making my own cards. I plan on continuing this tradition for years to come. There is something special about creating your very own Christmas cards and I am so glad I put the time and effort into this project. It took a lot of time and effort but it was fun and so rewarding! I hope these cards will put a smile on the face of all who receive them. I chose to make a pedestal card that measures 4 and 3quarters by 5 1/2. I made 50 cards and chose 5 designs. I made 5 sets of 10 cards each. I chose two stamped image designs and 3 Cricut cut designs. I kept the designs simple and used Stickles glitter glue as my only embellishment on the cards. I think this is the most cards I have ever made at one time. I started around Thanksgiving and finished tonight. Because I work full-time, I had to work on the cards here and there whenever I had free time. I have no regrets and think everyone should try making there own Christmas cards at least once in their lifetime. I had fun but it is a relief to be done. Now it is on to my next project-Christmas Tags for my Christmas gifts so stay tuned!
