This year, I just gave in. I'm not looking at it as a failure because I don't have amazing handmade Christmas cards to send out. I'm looking at it as a success because I've finally learned my limitations. I ordered my Christmas cards from Tiny Prints and they've already arrived. I ordered a few different cards and I'm personalizing each one just a little bit.
This week (November 10th-November 15th). I'll have a new post here each day about Christmas cards. I've prepared posts about handmade cards, about preprinted cards and a few things in between.
The first card I have to share with you is a preprinted square card that I ordered from Tiny Prints. First of all I should tell you a little bit about the Tiny Prints cards...they are beautiful!!! Because I am a papercrafter I'm picky about the quality of the paper and the quality of the photos printed on the paper. I was not disappointed with the quality of these cards I was thrilled! They're printed on very heavy cardstock with a beautiful matte finish.
I decided to personalize this card just a little bit by adding some black ribbon right below the photo.
craft knife* and carefully threaded the ribbon through each slit and tied a bow in the front between the sentiment and the photo.
Because I knew I wanted to add a little bit of embellishment to each card I ordered liners to go in the envelope. I was just as excited about the liners as I was the cards. They are beautiful and so easy to add to the envelope. The liners will make sure that the embellishments won't tear through the envelope. If you're interested in purchasing this specific card you can find it HERE.
This year on December 17th you won't find me hurrying to get my cards printed, addressed, and sent out. It will already be done! My goal is to have my cards all sent out by December 1st. Do you think I can do it? I've already have half the battle won because I have my cards printed, embellished, and my list made. All I have left to do is address them, put the stamp on, and send them out. I can do that!
