When do you start making your Christmas cards?

Postby Kathyk » Thu May 26, 2016 11:34 pm

Hi there,

I just wondered when you all start making your Christmas cards? Do you do a few when you think about it? Wait until November and have a mad dash to get them done? Perhaps you start in January and commit to making a few each month?

I USED to do the mad dash but, one year found myself still making them up to Christmas Eve - not good, quite stressful and I wasn't overly happy with all the results either! Then I discovered that it was quite nice to make a few each months and FAR less stressful. You'd be amazed how many challenges there are out there, designed to encourage you to make them through the year. SIMPLE!!! A few friends and I have a private blog and we have a Rudolph Day challenge every other month .... this past RD (25th May) saw a fresh challenge, to make a shaped card ....... not terribly keen on shaped cards but ... I'm no quitter!, so here's the card I made using die cut circles. I used copier paper (100gsm) to construct a matching sized envelope

I make mine over the year. But at the end of the year the most of them.
Lovely greetings, Michelle

Well, I guess any you make over the year mean less to panic make at the end! Good luck with your 2016 quota - do you make many?

I definitely try and get mine done throughout the year. My challenges are also designed to help people with their Christmas cards. The Christmas challenge at HLS is very popular and so is the Holiday challenge at ATSM. Both designed so we aren't doing them on Christmas Eve!!! LOL
