Making Christmas, Making Christmas!

Hello there!

So, once upon a time, for many years when I was younger, I made a whole bunch of handmade Christmas cards for all my friends. I can't quite remember the last year I did this, but I would guess it was around 10 years ago.

Well this year I decided to revive that tradition.

OH MY GOODNESS was it a lot of work!!! o.O I started 'em the first week of December & was still working on the last few right up until Christmas.

I'm glad I did it but it really was exhausting! lol

So here are some of the cards I made. I apologize if some of the photos are extra blurry- sometimes I barely finished them before I had to seal 'em up & run to the post office.

I had to make these long, skinny cards to fit the letter sized envelopes I had left after I ran out of card envelopes.  I actually like them a lot & think I will use the same shape again. :)

Some non-traditional cards:

That is only about half of the paper cards I made!

I also made some digital cards:

And a few hybrid cards (hand drawn elements incorporated into digital cards)

What do you think?
