Homemade Christmas Cards :)

9 Nov

I decided I better start these suckers now because it takes me a while to get these kinds of things done! I was inspired by a piece of art that was stippled while I was browsing around on wordpress. I haven’t stippled since freshman year of college and I probably should be doing it daily 😉 It is such a great stress reliever and takes your mind off of EVERYTHING.

I made E’s birthday invitations almost completely from scratch and I loved doing it so I planned on making Christmas cards too. Somehow it’s more fun for me knowing that I accomplished a lot more than just buying a card and signing my  name 😉

Take in mind that this is just the beginning. It only took me about ten – fifteen minutes to get this far because stippling is kind of time consuming but the rest was a piece of cake. Trying to find some good ideas to add a little Christmas theme design on the top right and hoping to take family photo’s to paste on the back? For some reason I am obsessed with pictures haha. If you couldn’t already tell I feel pictures are worth a million words.

So if I actually get these done before it’s time to send them out I might have to come up with something else to add .. like home-baked goodies!!??  YUMMM.

Haha.

Love Always,

J
