Default Please post your Christmas Cards!

From the past or present!

I'm trying to do a card from scratch because I'm using Penny's Bent Bunch #03 for my photos.

I so SUCK at cards. I am terrible at paper cards and obviously no better at digi cards and this is my first attempt. I'd love to see everyone else's so I can lift one. I'm doing 4x8 and hopefully double-sided.

I would if I had one! I still need to get my pic taken so I can make one!

I am not sure I even kept any of my previous ones. Bad me!

I gave up on getting a new photo of the boys - one is sick and I'm just running out of time. So I used recent photos instead.

Just keep it simple hon. If you're using a bent bunch, I would just have a BG piece of paper, and then a strip of solid paper to write the greeting on. Throw a few elements on there and you're good to go

This is mine from this year. 5x7 greeting card.

The back has a message about the joy of Christmas, etc. and our family's name.

This is so stinkin' cute, Kresta!!

Here's our card. I printed them at Winkflash and just grabbed the most recent picture cause I thought the card sale was ending (of course, 3 weeks later they're still on sale ).

We're sending this to our closest friends and family. I'm also making paper cards for everyone.

Edit - eek... will this pseudo HTML editor let me re-size?

(inside panel, back of card, front of card)

Previous year (I had them printed as 8x8 so I could put them in my square frames for the holidays)

2006:




I can't find 2005 on my computer.

Here's mine! I LOVED Dani's Candy Coated Greetings.... such bright fun colors! I adapted it though to fit a 4x8.





Printing with Vistaprint.... double-sided cards!

Wow, such beautiful cards, I wish I could comment on each one of them. I haven't done our card yet. I ordered some studio lights, so as soon as I get them, I will get some pictures of the boys and see what inspires me from there. I do card design and I've designed a few others this season. Here is my card from last year - it was folded with a nice sentiment on the inside.

You all are killing me here! You have such awesome cards! I think I've re-done mine at least 4 times, because all of yours are so great!

So here is what I came up with so far. I have to change out one photo because my son doesn't like it (the one on the right of the title).

I swear I opened up so many different papers, etc. I'm not even sure what all I used, but I know I used stuff from Libby's Maui Christmas, Cotton-Headed, and Shimmer Alpha kits.

Printing mine at Vistaprints so I can have the front and back. As I wrote our little synopsis of the year I realized, we are SO BORING!



Thanks everyone for posting your cards - it was HUGE inspiration for me!

Here are some of my past years:

(2005 - my first digi one ever)


(2006 - template by Traci Reed w/ her Reason for the Season collection)

(2007 - my mom's card .... the C is supposed to be my nephew but there were some technical difficulties)


(2007 - My card - that actually never went out. I ordered late & never got them in the mail. I have a stack of 50. Template by Bree, kit by Dani)

And this year's card:

Great inspiration here--thanks! I was waiting as long as possible to make this year's cards just in case the baby arrived in time to be on it. I've finally given up on that, so I took pictures this weekend and I'm going to start ours tonight. Here's the one we used last year.
