...there’s a lot of pressure at Christmas-time for paper people. If you see me around and I have huge bags under my eyes and look as sleep-deprived as the mother of a newborn, it’s not that I’ve been up all night with a teething Clara, but I’ve been up all night perusing pinterest, etsy, and google for the.perfect.christmas.card
The thing that’s frustrating for me, usually, is that I find these cards that are super-expensive (but won’t be when I win that sweet Powerball tomorrow night! That will completely change this post). Anyway, I find these cards that are super-expensive and I think, “I could make that.” If only I had A) Time (maybe my time would be better spent learning letterpress than watching Grey’s…thoughts?) and B) Resources.
I did find the perfect card. Here were some of the front-runners.
Merry and Bright by Lindsay Letters (this was only an option if I won the Powerball. Maybe I will have her design by Powerball-winning announcement).
I was thinking a design-on-the-front, photo-on-the-back look. And the perfect card ended up being a variation of one of the cards above. I’ll share it once my family and friends have gotten it. Since I’m going to try to do my fancy font on each envelope, that might be by Christmas 2013. The thought is what counts, right?
