My Christmas Card

I wanted to share a picture of the Christmas cards that I made for family and friends this year. It's not possible for me to send a different handmade card to everyone on my list, so the majority gets a "mass produced" card from me. I do still make several different cards though for close friends and those who I know appreciate my hard work and don't necessarily need a picture of my kids, lol.

These were the two cards I created using Doodlebugs polka dot cardstock and an oval Nestie. The cardinal and christmas tree were made with EK Success punches and the snowflake and branches with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is from an Anna Wight set from Whipper Snapper and the pine branch from an Inkadinkado set. The flatbacked gems are from Making Memories. Some Stickles and faux stitching with a Ranger Inkssentials pen and done.

I'll be squeezing in the rest of my Christmas cards over the next several day and hope to finish before Christmas, yikes!! Have a great day!

Glad to see what you finally decided on! So sweet--although I do think your boys remind me of that ornery little character from Our Gang!!!! But I am sure they're angels, right?!

Wow! These are fabulous, and your boys are sooooooooooo adorable! It looks like plenty of your hard work went into these, too. I know they'll be well received and proudly displayed. An album full of the annual Christmas photos is a real family treasure.
