Christmas Cards


I made some of my Christmas cards this year, 32, to be exact. I used the embossed velvet I blogged about here and two different stamps, depending on whether they were for friends or family. They were difficult to photograph because I couldn't pin them up on my design wall so I had to shoot them from above while they were flat on the table.
I got the card blanks from cardblanks.com and they were just what I needed with a three inch opening for the velvet. They were harder to make than you might think, since I was working from the back and the velvet was slippery and slithery. I don't think I got one of them in the right way on the first try. Sometimes it took two or three tries. They all got mailed out earlier in the week. I hope this doesn't sound terrible, but I only sent them to people who I thought would appreciate them. The rest got some very pretty store bought cards. I sent out about 75 cards altogether.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
