Our Family Christmas Cards

“I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Cardstore. I received complimentary cards and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.” cardstoreChristmas is my most favorite holiday! I love everything about it but my most favorite thing is the mailing of our yearly Christmas cards! Call me old fashion, but I love sending snail mail! Now don't get me wrong, preparing for the holidays can be quite stressful but with a little preparation, you can have a very joyful holiday season! We have a family tradition of hosting a big Christmas breakfast with our family. To help me prepare for this, I write down what will be served and I normally shop for all the items the week before Christmas so there isn't  a crowd and items are still available on the shelf. I also try to keep the house clean by picking up little things laying around the house each night so by the time by company arrives, the house will be spotless! This year when I was planning for my Christmas cards, I want to make it as less stressful for me as possible. With all the options out there, I wanted to keep it simple but share all our recent family photos.

I wanted a card option that I could use several of our family photos and I found the perfect template. I was able to use a mixture of colored and black and white photos in my card which I thought added great contrast. I love the added Washi Tape effect on my Christmas card and I plan to use washi tape on the outside of my envelope as well so it will go perfectly together.

I love that Cardstore gives you several extra envelopes for when we make mistakes in addressing our cards and if you are one who doesn't like to address your own cards, Cardstore will address them and even mail them for you too! How awesome is that? With Christmas just two weeks ago, don't delay on getting your Christmas cards and get them ordered today! I promise you won't be disappointed!
