Last year I had the idea that I wanted to do handmade Christmas cards. I knew I would need a least 50 but I thought it would be totally manageable and fun. I was inspired by a card from this website. I have searched but I can't find it. It is a very beautiful card. I tried to make mine similar but more simple. Making the cards took much more time than I thought it would. And I didn't even get to finish last year. I became sick before Christmas and did not have the energy to finish. Luckily I hadn't added the picture to the card yet so I could use them this year.
Yesterday I spent the day stitching the cards, adding the buttons (already threaded with twine), cutting and adding the pictures, and writing in them. I can't say I enjoyed doing it that much. I decided I am more of a yarn and fabric girl than a paper girl. I think they are cute though and I am happy to be sending out handmade cards. But I don't think I will be doing it again
