Finally! Our Family Christmas Card!

I am NOT organized this year at all! I blame it on getting ready for that craft show. Anyway, I normally have my Christmas cards done and mailed during the first week of December. This year, I'm STILL working on them. However, I did get 20 done this weekend for family friends.


I usually feature a photo of my girls on the front of the Christmas card. This year, Princess is included too. I love this photo! I took it in our backyard. The card itself is very simple. No Primas, Stickles, brads, or ribbon! It's just a photo, cardstock, and some stamping. I used the "Happy Holidays" and the snowflake from my Stampin' Up Frosty set. I ticket punched the front, and I sponged on some ink. That's it. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so great! I've always wondered if it's less expensive doing it this way rather than going through a company like shutterfly to print cards. I guess the big difference is that it's not "homemade" that way. But if you're on a budget, would it be more economical? Have you noticed if it's more expensive to do it one way over another?

(new to cardmaking) -- thanks for any advice.
