Holiday Card Round-Up

1 Jan

Do you get excited as I do when you grab your mail in December and see your friends or family’s return address printed on an envelope and you know it is a holiday card? Much of my December is devoted to holiday cards and I love seeing all the pictures, reading all the letters and of course the design and colors used 🙂 I stick with the classic refrigerator for displaying our cards we receive. I know it isn’t anything special, but I love seeing all the smiling faces everyday when I fetch my diet mt. dews.

Every year I hate to take them all down, but I always keep and store them with their corresponding year marked on it, I have a feeling it will be a blast to look back on all of them someday.

GENO birth announcement holiday card

My nephew Geno is pretty handsome, so the only thing I needed to add to his combo birth announcement/holiday card was a few snowflakes. I think this one might contest to be the only holiday card that stays up until next Christmas!

Next to Geno’s, this was my favorite Christmas card we got. And it actually wasn’t addressed to Bjorn or I, it was delivered to our dog Turk!!! Her best (dog) friend Molly lives across the street and they run and play with each other almost every day so I thought it was the nicest/sweetest/cutest thing when our neighbors brought her this card, we are certainly going to hang it in her kennel for her!

The wedding and save the date Christmas cards are still as popular as ever that we offer at Ginger P Designs and the beautiful photos never seem to disappoint.

And last but not least, our 2012 Christmas card. It is always last on the list, but I just love coming up with our card design. This year I chose a picture from our summer trip to Europe, as it definitely was a highlight of our 2012. This particular pic was from the beautiful Cinque Terre, Italy. I went with a shimmer green paper backing for the actual card, an embossed wood grain pocket to keep the pic a surprise to mail-getters, and enclosed it all with a white wood grain embossed matching envelope. I hope all of your holiday seasons are Merry + Bright enough to wear sunglasses!

    Love, love, love your Christmas card. I’m not sure if you’re willing to share, but where, oh where, did you find the wood grain paper/envelopes? I would love to use some of this in my Smash book! Thanks for sharing!
