❅ Christmas Card Makin’❅

Hello! Its the first week of December and I hope you’re feeling the Christmas spirit as much as I am (it is definitely not too early now). Whilst in the midst of enjoying the decorations going up all around me and watching a YouTube Vlogmas playlist that’s longer than my arm, I decided to write a blog post.

Starting late November, I began making Christmas cards to send out to my friends and family – the people who always have my back and whom I love and appreciate so, so much. The least I can do is thank them! I’ve been designing, hand-writing, and snail-mailing Christmas cards to friends for a good 3 years now, and personally I find it much better than a text message on Christmas morning. Don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that (I do it too, although I’ve sent cards out already. People must hate me for my over-the-top Christmas vibes). Whenever I receive a letter in the mail, though, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I decided doing the same would make people happy, too. I love writing little notes to those I am grateful for, and sending them out oddly gives me some sense of satisfaction.

I snapped some photographs whilst making the cards, and decided to share them with you. They’re simple designs this year, but I thought they were still pretty cute (cute enough to share, that is). I included the materials I used too, so feel free to get inspired and do the same. Here they are!

Merry Christmas, pals

So yes, if this kind of thing is your cuppa’ tea or you just want to try it out anyway, then go put on some Christmas music, sit in a comfy spot with art supplies, and start making some cards to send out to people – its not too late yet! Even the littlest note can put a smile on someone’s face. 🙂

Hope you enjoyed this post, and don’t forget to follow this blog (open the sidebar and submit your email address) to see what I get up to next week!

x, Nat.
