I was so excited to do our Christmas cards this year. It's one of those "family" things that I've always looked forward to.. and luckily we have a lot of people in our life who love our son.
Originally, I was going to order from Tiny Prints, because they have very cute options. I love the idea of ornament cards, like this:
Plum District (are you tired of me talking about that site yet?!) for $20 for $40 at Pear Tree Greetings. I'd never heard of them, but checked out their site and they had circle cards, too. So I used up more referral credits and snagged free cards.
The hardest part was, getting his Christmas photo! I knew a family photo would be too difficult, since our resident photographer (my sister-in-law) wouldn't be visiting soon. Plus, everyone loves looking at babies more than me & my fiance :P So, THREE DAYS in a row, I got Marshmallow dressed in his adorable Christmas sweater-vest and button up chambray shirt and khakis, and 2 of those days were utter failures. This was the best pic I got in his outfit, on Day 3 (with some editing in Paint.NET, of course):
I knew I could DIY them to make them ornaments, so a quick trip to Walmart and I came home with a $.97 1-hole punch and $.47 for a 10 yd. roll of red ribbon. And voila, we have our Christmas card ornaments! I love them.
