christmas cards | 2011

Seeing as all the cards are posted, and hopefully will arrive at the beginning of the coming week, I thought I'd post them here. Now, I always have plans to make the cards by hand. About half of the times I run out of time and have to quickly whip something up in Photoshop. I have this idea that Christmas cards should be handmade and so when I don't get to do that I can't help but feel a little bit like a failure. But there are only so many hours in the day, and I'm letting it go.

So I had originally designed something entirely different, but in the end felt it wasn't representative of us. So one night this week I promptly decided to remake them. Said and done, and in four hours I had designed three different cards, printed, cut, mounted (on cardstock), and adressed them all. I was kind of chuffed about that.

Alrighty, here they are:

(Do you see me huddling on the floor in the reflection of the ornament? Hee!)

I used the Be Merry Photocards for the second and third card (just changed out the papers on the second one with papers from the Frostbite Paper Pack). For the first one I used wordard from the Be Merry Photocards and paper from the Be Merry Paper Pack. You can find all of these in my shop at
