Holiday Cards

Last year I was too busy to design a card, but I worked on one last night and it’s something quite different from what I’ve done before. I know some people won’t like it, but right now I’m looking on it as an opportunity to stretch creatively.
As I’ve mentioned before, I got burned out with hands-on card-making a few years ago. I used to make 180 every Christmas—80 for myself and the rest for Pam who obviously has more friends than I do!
We take the holiday card thing seriously in my family. My dad carefully chooses every card he sends. The sentiment and image have to be just right before he will mail one off to anyone. A couple of years ago he even bought me two holders to display my cards over the holidays, which I thought was really sweet of him.

By the way, if you want to send cards but aren’t in the mood to make any, check out Carmi’s great deal on her website.

Susan - this is gorgeous - and 180! cards @ once! I thought sending 6 1/2 dozen off for the troops was an accomplishment. Did you make them alike, or did you vary your design?
