We don’t send many Christmas cards. I think now, with facebook and instagram and email…people don’t really need a Christmas card photo to see what we look like. And, thanks to the same social media, they mostly know what we’ve been up to.
I like handmade cards because the kids can get involved in sending out some Christmas love to friends and family — and hopefully the recipients feel special. If you’re looking to try making your own cards, these are a great place to start!
