Cameron and I wanted to send out Christmas cards this year, but when we went online to order them we found they were much more pricey than we really wanted to do, so we decided to make our own. I looked online for ideas on craft sites, card sites, and Pinterest and finally came across these cards:
I thought they were adorable and decided to base my design of the card. I bought two $5 packs of scrapbook paper at WalMart (because that's what I could afford) and went to work. I already had the gold marker, the rafia, and the buttons to put everything together. With all supplies used (newly purchased or already in my possession), all in all I think that each card came out to $0.65 max (with the photo being $0.28 of it). That was a deal cheaper than what we were originally looking at.
Here's what I came up with (this was my preliminary...I forgot to take a picture of the really good finished product before I sealed them all up in addressed envelopes).
I made 32 cards (until I ran out of green paper), and have most of those mailed off (still gathering the last few addresses), but there were more people I wanted to send them to, so I put together a digital copy of the card on GIMP (I love that program) that I can e-mail out. Christmas cars, done!Jacie Ames Photography.
