Hi friends.  I am so happy to say I had my Christmas cards done and mailed on December 10th this year.  This is a new record for me.  I’m assuming all my recipients have received them by now, but if not – CLOSE YOUR EYES!
I like to keep my annual Christmas cards pretty basic (for me) and as flat as possible for mailing.  If you stop by regularly, you know I LOVE layers and also MUST HAVE ribbon on my cards.  While I did forgo my signature bow, I was able to sneak a little piece of Christmas Traditions Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon on there under the main column.
I used a pretty die that I found at Tutti Designs for my card.  While the intricate die makes the card look complex, I just cut it three times and cut out different parts of the die in the different colors to make them stand out.  I used Stardream cardstock from CutCardStock in red, silver and gold.  I LOVE this cardstock!!
Did you know you can stamp on mulberry paper?  Well, yes you can!  I really like the way it turned out.
I do my annual cards assembly line style and once I got all the die cuts done, it went relatively quickly.  Even with all my layers, I still came in just a little under one ounce – so I only needed one regular postage stamp.  Score!
