Handmade Christmas Cards Received 2017

I received several lovely cards this year, some with sparkle, some with foil, many with lovely handwritten messages inside. Three cards I received were handmade.

The first handmade card of the season was this one from my sister-in-law and family. We learned the z-fold box card in class. We had a use your holiday papers crafting day and she used that opportunity to do a bunch of stamping with the intention of making a large batch of this style of cards. She did the stamping (and the colouring, I believe), but her 11-year old son helped with the rest.
Here's another angle so you can see the dimension in this card.

The next one came from my mother-in-law. She used a paper tole kit to make this dimensional snowman scene.
The reindeer bust is a die cut. Here's a closer look at the snowman.

The last of the handmade cards to arrive was this delicate, die cut holiday wreath from a family friend.
This one has the sentiment heat embossed in white and lots of little rhinestones sprinkled throughout the wreath. Here's a closer look at that.

I appreciate ALL the cards we got over the holidays, as every one means someone was thinking of you, but I recognize the amount of effort that goes into handmade ones. I wanted to show them to you since maybe they will give you ideas for your holiday cards next year.

As we say goodbye to 2017, I hope everyone has a healthy and prosperous 2018!
