A few handmade Christmas cards

Have I finished my Christmas cards? No.

Do I have more finished than this time last year? Yes.

I’m calling that success, so far.

So here’s a little share of some cards I’ve been making. You’ll find a tutorial for the card set above here on the Jenni Bowlin Inspiration blog, and there are cards from the whole team throughout the month.

And these you’ll find on the American Crafts blog as part of their Christmas card week. These use the Hollyday collection, plus a little Christmas-themed washi tape.

So that’s at least five cards done. Perhaps I should number the list to see how many I really need?

Have you been making and sharing cards on your blog? Share a link so we can all see!


PS: if handmade cards are just so not your thing at this time of year but you still want to sort some pretty greetings, these letterpressed cards (including Christmas designs) are already 30% off.

    Ooh I just posted about Christmas cards as well! I cheated a bit this year and used some accent cuts from the Crate Paper Pepermint collection. So pretty!

    Thanks for sharing your idea about recycling old Christmas cards. Just want to share what my young art students do to recycle and conserve.
