I thought I’d showcase some of the handmade Christmas cards that I made this year. It’s been quite the production (I made about 70 cards and I still need more and am supplementing with some photo cards for family and some friends). Making cards is a long-standing tradition for me. Way back when I still lived in Germany, I used to get together with a friend for a couple of weekends before Christmas and we would make all our cards together. We drank copious amounts of tea, ate Christmas cookies, listened to Christmas music and crafted. I miss that. Doing it by myself is just not the same, but it’s something that I still do and enjoy to do every year!
My cards used to be more time-consuming and elaborate when I had to make fewer cards, but I had to streamline the process a bit in the last few years due to the sheer volume of cards I (happily!) send out every year. I still think it adds a nice personal touch to the holidays! I don’t think I could ever give up on sending Christmas cards!
Do you send Christmas cards or do you think it’s unnecessary and old-fashioned?
