I made these cards to mail to some of our extended family last Christmas:
(All materials from Close To My Heart.) Making the cards wasn't the hard part, it was finding the time to sit down and write meaningful messages to our loved ones, which is the whole reason for sending cards, I believe. Next time, I'm going to make 2-3 times more than I did this year because we sure didn't get to send one out to everyone we wanted to. I can't believe how quickly that huge card stash can disappear!
I like sending handmade cards for Christmas, but I know of a lot of people who send photos or typed letters, and some who send their greetings for the new year instead of Christmas. What's your cup of tea?
