This year, I waited too long to make Christmas cards and then ended up sending them as New Year cards. Sigh.
I even thought my plan to make postcards was just brilliant, since it would save me the insanity of making my own envelopes like I did last year and the year before. But it didn't help. I still got behind and had to send them out late. C'est la vie.
I used thick bookboard from Paper Source and cut it down to 4x6 inch rectangles. It made a very satisfying giant stack, I must admit:
I found a sheet of scrapbook paper with snowflake cut-outs to use as a mask. Then I went to town with the spray paint.
I like the way they came out, although I probably would have done more with them if I had left myself more time.
It's funny to me that I have used a snowflake motif on our cards for the last two years even though it does not snow where we live. Huh. I guess the "White Christmas" image is just something I cannot shake!
