And I know that's not what any of you really wanted to hear !!! It's far too early for me too, however, I needed to get these cards made and mailed early, so that the recipient recieves them with plenty of time to write them and mail them out.
I made 5 of each design ... the perfect number I've decided. Not too many that you get bored, but just enough to enjoy the creative aspects of each design.
So for your enjoyment ..... here we go .... and who knows, it may just inspire you to give making your own Christmas cards a try this year.

I made them using lots of different things ..... my Cricut, my Sizzix machine, embossing folders, paper punches, rubber stamps, washi tape, ribbon, brads, bakers twine ..... I just had a rummage through what I had, and put it to use.

I put a paper insert into each card too ...... the person who'll be getting these, likes to write a little yearly update in her Christmas cards, so hopefully this gives her some extra room to do that.
So that they didn't look to plain, I added a strip of washi tape to each insert ..... I like the effect.

It also gave me the chance to decide which design I liked best, and which I'll be adapting to suit the needs of our family's Christmas card this year.

Until next time ...... Keep Creating !!!
