Christmas Cards 2009

I can check one thing off my list! I finished my Christmas cards! Of course there's still the Christmas letter to write, and the actual signing of the cards that needs to happen... but I feel good about getting the most time-intensive part of the process complete. Waahoo!

I made a set of five designs:

They're all variations on this card that I came up with and showed you a couple of weeks ago:

The only major change to the original design was that I embossed the trees...

I made 55 cards in all. Thank goodness for my tabletop paper cutter!

Oh, and special thanks to my little crafting assistant... she provided lots of morale support along the ways...

I love your cards! Mine are sitting on the table looking at me in shame....knowing that they won't be sent out in time. LOL I still have to emboss the front and write the message on the inside.

Thanks so much! I finally got the Christmas letter in the envelopes and the cards in the mail today. Phew!
