Christmas cards!

14 December 2010

I LOVE Christmas cards! Love getting them, love sending them. I especially love reading family newsletters, even though everyone else seems to hate them!

Though J and I basically send out a joint card (by default, I suppose, since J wouldn’t send out any cards without me!), I don’t like the idea of doing a photo card until we’re married. I also don’t like the idea of doing a readymade card at this point, even though there are gorgeous options to be had (See here and here for my picks! I particularly love this design my good buddy is sending out.) Of course, I’m sure I will be singing a different tune when I need to churn out 100+ cards, but for now, my list is manageable — 39 this year.

I was very happy with last year’s card, but struggled a long time this year waiting for inspiration to strike. I had numerous starts and stops at the craft table. Then, I happened upon this image from Martha:

Martha to the rescue! With this color palette as my guide, and Kate Spade glitz on my mind, this is what I came up with:

They say “be merry and bright on the inside.” :) What do you think?

P.S. Curious what my Christmas cards looked like last year? Here’s a peek.

Emily- your Christmas cards were the cutest! I am so glad I received mine before I left for the holidays! (It came the same day as Kate's actually!) Thank you for thinking of us, it totally made my day!
