Since this is our first Christmas as a married couple, I want our Christmas card to be special. And since anything homemade is automatically more special (not to mention more fun!) I'm making them myself. It's also more economical, which is something I think most newlyweds can appreciate!
October might seem like a ridiculous time to begin thinking about Christmas cards but since they are a DIY project--in other words, labor intensive and time consuming--I thought I'd better get a head start. We are also planning a trip for mid-December and I did not want to be scrambling to finish them amidst packing and preparing to leave.
Anyway, I thought it might be fun to share a sneak peek of some details--without giving away too much!
This is not the photo we will be using (so as not to ruin the surprise) but I do think it's sort of sweet.
I plan to eventually share photos of the final product and blog about how I designed and created the cards. In the meantime, if you're looking for DIY Christmas card ideas, feel free to email me and I can offer you a few tips.
Did this post get you in a festive, holiday spirit? I hope so!
