The majority of my Christmas cards are everlasting cards which means I send them and the recipients send them back to me the next year. No new cards to buy. The cards are made from scrap materials and the envelopes I'm using this year I purchased quite cheaply from Lidl-iddle last year.
Some cards I didn't have envelopes for so I made them myself out of a piece of paper - not the neatest of jobs but it covers the card.
The front got a bit of decoration.
I hadn't got a window card so I just stuck the cross-stitch straight on the card and outlined it with silver pen.
These cards were very simple to make.
And this card was made while helping some children to make cards last year.
This one's my favourite.
The cross-stitch here is recycled from someone else's card that I rescued.
Just a few extra cards as spares. I seem to have quite a few small red envelopes so I'm making cards to fit.
Nearly all written now. The majority I am able to deliver by hand, thank goodness.
I am linking my Advent Garland to KC's Court this year for a really Advent Bloggy Christmas.
