Oh Christmas card, oh Christmas card, why are you so hard to decide on? Picking a design and sticking to it was a harder decision for me than what college to go to. But here is the final product. Lucky for me, I have strict Christmas card rules to follow from my English husband. The photo card thing, not surprisingly, is uniquely American. So every year I get to pick a photo for the American family and friends, and a non-photo card for the Brits. Yay! Options!
First up, my card. Photo from our engagement session – it just looked a little more Christmassy than our August wedding photos. It does seem silly to have just a picture of us. I can’t wait to get a dog, or a baby, purely for inclusion in Christmas card photos.
Second up, these GORGEOUS cards from a Portland artist. I sent these to people I knew would rather have a piece of art than my mug on their fridge. I found her on Etsy and fell in love with her stuff. I hope to someday procure a whole room full of her works. www.theblackapple.net
Okey dokey, now for the English! I saw these cards advertised in some indie craft mag and thought they were super neat. www.paperspring.com We leave this Saturday to spend 2 weeks with my husband’s friends and family in Sheffield, I can’t wait to answer them when they ask if I designed them… Nope.
From the bottom of my heart - I wish you all a very happy holiday season and a fantastical 2011!!
