Ok, let’s be honest.
November rolls around and we say to ourselves “man I should’ve started to make holiday cards A LOT sooner.
I have so many wicked cute holiday sets that I haven’t even had a chance to play with yet.
I am going to guess that most of you who are reading this post fall into one if not both of those scenarios. So I was talking with my crafty friends Chari and Cheiron, and I mentioned it would be fun to challenge each other to create at least one holiday card a month. I mean, that would give me 12 handmade holiday cards to send out this year and that would be way more then I sent out last year.
So each month on the third Thursday each of us girls is going to post our holiday creation and hopefully inspire you to create one too! If you do end up making any please leave a comment below with a link, or tag me on instagram so I can see! We are also going to use the hashtag #getcrackingonchristmas
We can do this! We can create holiday cards all year, and be a little bit more prepared for the holiday season!
I had these adorable sets from Honey Bee, Blah Hum Bunny and Blah Blah Blah:
I decided to make a holiday card and then I was having so much fun giving the bunnies patterned scarves and ink smooshing backgrounds I made some encouragement cards too!
And there you go I have 5 cards ready to go! Another thing I struggle with is actually mailing handmade cards. All year long I say I am going to do so and it ends up at the bottom of my to-do list. I recently posted this on instagram:
I have a confession. I have confessed this before. I am@horrible at actually mailing my handmade cards to friends 😔 it’s not that I avoid it on purpose it just ends up at the very bottom of my to-do list. I decided this year, during all my travels I am going g to bring a couple cards with me on the plane and write them out to friends 😊❤️ I will have the envelopes already with stamps on them and then I will just mail them from my destination 😊🎉 fun right?
So, I know those encouragement cards will get put to good use soon!
