time: about 1 hour to make 40+ cards.
tools used: wine corks, stamp pads, bone paper folder, paper cutter, cardstock paper, envelopes.
5. i have TONS of 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of cardstock paper lying around [that's right, from our wedding]. for our holiday cards, i chose the paper source cover weight paper, in soft white. i also used a paper cutter [if you like to make your own cards and crafts, i highly recommend getting one] and a bone folding tool.
so, we finally got off our lazy butts this past weekend and made...holiday cards!
since we got back from thanksgiving, the cards and gifts from our friends have been rolling in one by one, piling onto our guilt. and we thought we could get away with it by not calling them or hanging out with them. we looked busy with our two-month trip to taiwan, and one-week vacation in los angeles. but they remembered us.
we have really nice friends. actually, they're awesome. and we owed it to them to make something thoughtful, and made with love. so here's what i came up with this year. inspired by this [because it's so simple], and this [for the burst of color].
friends, i hope you enjoy our cards as we enjoyed making them for you!
