Handmade Christmas Cards!!!

I was the lucky recipient of some very beautiful handmade Christmas cards this year and I thought I would share them with you. It is such a treat to receive them whether in the mail or hand-delivered as I know the amount of time that goes into the creation process.

I don't know how I missed having it myself, but don't you just love the embossed background on Dana's card. There's another CB folder on my shopping list now.

The funny thing is that I was going to use that very same tree stamp for our cards this year, but after seeing such beauties come to me I thought I'd try something else. That's only a partial reason why I didn't mail ours out until (shhhh!) yesterday!

Of course I had this grandiose idea to adapt the medallion from this card into an ornament and that would be our card, but after punching out all those circles and squares, I had to opt to make two different cards and the second one didn't have any stamping and was a card I did for a Teapot Tuesday challenge a couple of weeks ago.

Here's the insert I included with my cards:
Though Christmas Day has come and gone
The season still is here.
We hope your Christmas was quite fun
And send you New Year's cheer!


  1. I LOVE homemade cards. I received ONE from my friend. Hope you had a great, great holiday Lorraine!!

  2. You received some beautiful cards! I love the ones you made as well! so simple, yet so elegant!
