2012 Christmas Cards

The past few years, we have sent out photocards for Christmas. They are fun and easy, and everyone enjoys pictures! This year however, I was inspired (thanks to Pinterest!) and I decided to hand make some Christmas cards for some special people on our Christmas card list. I couldn’t decide on just one card though, so I ended up making a bunch of different types of cards – I just had so many ideas!

As I said, I got many of my ideas from Pinterest. Here are some of the sites I where found inspiration and ideas: inkspiredtreasures.com, splitcoaststampers.commakingpapercrafts.blogspot.co.uk, and stampingliz.com.


  • Christmas paper packs (one with double sided paper)
  • Ribbons
  • Brads (black, gold, and “blingy” ones)
  • Christmas rubber stamps and black, red, & green ink
  • Christmas paper punches (star, hearts (2 sizes), tree, snowman, snowflakes of various sizes, circles of various sizes)
  • Adhesive (double sided adhesive and elmer’s glue)
  • Blank white cards with envelopes

So I made a few of each of these cards, and  they turned out so well! After I made a bunch of cards, I realized that the ones with ribbons and brads would probably need extra postage… so off to the post office I went to buy 65 cent stamps. Since I was paying extra for postage on a handful of cards, I decided I’d put some wax seals on those ones too. Why not? It was pretty!

Putting the seals on was a team effort for Matt and me. He lit the candle and dripped the wax, then I swooped in and pressed the seal down. They turned out pretty well!

My cards are starting to arrive in people’s mailboxes, and I hope everyone enjoys them!

    What fun! I loved my card! The wax seal was chipped, but the star imprint was intact. It was nice to see your table full of cards. Pretty candle holders too.
