Christmas Photo Cards

Just us Girls is calling for Holiday Photo Cards this week. I was so excited about that because I'm hoping to get some good ideas for my cards this year. I have made photo cards every year since my first son was born (this will be the 10th year!) and it's something I look forward to each year. I generally make about 150 of them, so for me they need to be somewhat easy to put together. I thought I'd share a couple of cards from past Christmases. This first one I sent out 2 years ago, but changed up the paper because the paper I used is discontinued, but this one has the same feel.

This next card was actually a reject from last year, but I changed up the embellishments and sentiment. I ended up going with aqua and brown last year, so this didn't make the cut.

A vintage picture, but it went with the color scheme (:

Thanks for stopping by today!
