I had a heck of a time trying to photograph these. Our apartment gets very little natural light, especially in the winter, especially during hours when I am not at the office. Sigh.
But, moving on ... Cards!
I decided to make our Christmas cards for the first time.
I drew up a little design, cut it out of some Christmasy fabric, and used spray adhesive to attach it to the cards. Then I used my handy-dandy alphabet stamps to print the message inside. It ended up being more time consuming than I had estimated. And that adhesive has a wider spray radius than you might think. I'm pretty sure the odd grainy texture I recently noticed on the face of my mobile phone is a result of some adhesive overspray. Oops. But I declare it an overall success!
And! I have coordinating envelopes and labels! Woohoo!
All the paper products (cards, envelopes, labels) are from Paper-Source. I love that place. All the sizes! All the colors! I was there for nearly an hour just picking out my four stinkin' items. The fabric is, I don't know, something from JoAnn.
In other holiday news, I'm still working on Christmas gifts. Should I be worried that I am not yet 50% finished with the making I hope to accomplish and have only one week in which to finish? Ah, well, soldier on.
