I know… Christmas cards are so last month, right? Well, this year I was really behind on my cards (I didn’t mail them until Christmas EVE!) They were well received on Instagram so I thought I’d share them here today!
Last year I became enamored with this Year in Review trend. In November I began listing out facts and scouring Pinterest for inspiration. You would not believe how many wonderful versions of this there are out there!
I picked three fonts, two colors, and went with it! I used the silhouettes that I had used for our wedding, and I ordered an assortment of washi tape and some kraft envelopes. My mom and I are always strategizing about our cards, and she was the one who discovered the Jessica Hische Love stamps and stocked up on some for me. I printed the infographic on cardstock, and the photo strips on photo paper that I got at Target. I grabbed some paper clips from Target at the last minute, and we were all set!
After working on them for over a month, they finally came together! Brian and my mom were nice enough to help me out with assembly so that I could get them postmarked before Christmas.
I felt like I couldn’t leave my clients out in the cold, so I decided to send a few client cards for New Years. After having trouble finding places that would print custom square cards, and I wound up getting them printed at Zazzle and was pleasantly surprised by how well they turned out! I got my business cards and stickers printed at Moo, and had my stamp made by Simon Stamps (after reading a post by Jen Serafini!)
Do you send out Christmas cards? They’re one of my favorite things about the season. If you posted about yours, leave the link in the comments- I’d love to check them out!
I didn’t have room to include all the examples that I found, but I also loved these from October Ink, Em for Marvelous, and Honeysuckle Blog. You can also check out my stationery board for more ideas!
