In Process...

My Christmas cards are not in the mail yet, but they're close!

This year I really wanted to make my own christmas cards, but I was also interested in saving time and money. So I found a solution that I think lets me have my cake and eat it too!

Shutterfly had a great sale in October that gave me incentive to order photo cards early for a great price. I intentionally chose a very simple design so that I could add some of my own glitz (using stuff from my stash)to make each card unique. (I also added a removable note that includes our family blog address.)

So here is the card SOTM (straight out of the mail):

And then here are some examples of the finished cards with my added embellishments: ribbon, chipboard shapes, glittery star stickers and brads:

Now... if I could just get them into some addressed envelopes with stamps...

Oh, I so love this idea! They turned out great!! People are always surprised I don't make my Christmas cards, but since I've wanted *forever* to do photocards, that is what I now do (ever since kiddos)...and I explain to them that I make cards ALL YEAR LONG, lol. I totally love this idea though...may just *consider* that for next year! lol
