Christmas Box Cards 1

Good Morning,

I was very disappointed with myself last Christmas because I ran out of time to make everyone handmade Christmas Cards.  I have decided that Christmas 2018 will be different, I am determined to try to make Christmas Cards at least once a week!  

I made two of these cards, notice I got to use my glitzy paper again?

I promised my husband I would use up a lot of my stuff this year so I am making the envelopes out of some of the "lighter weight" Christmas Paper.

I am entering this box card into the following challenges:

Shopping Our Stash - #342 Home Sweet Home
The Holly and Ivy Christmas - Challenge #23 Anything Goes Christmas

Thank you so much for stopping by, I appreciate all of your comments.

    Creating Christmas cards all year round is a great idea and it will save you time and trouble when the Holidays roll around.
