My Christmas card craze has started

When I start making Christmas cards...I cannot stop. It usually starts off slowly with the cards...and then I get into a groove and can't stop making them. I made 8 the other night and will keep going until they are done. I blame it on the wonderful paper and embellishments out there.

This year, I fell in love with the Bo Bunny Christmas line and the new Basic Grey and that is what I started with. I love the vintage look and these papers seem to be my colors. Here is what I have come up with so far:
















These are my first attempts. I will get in the groove and they will come along nicely! I have been conscious of the bulkiness of cards for mailing so have been TRYING to make my cards more mail-friendly. I hope to make more later this week. Thanks for stopping by. Love and hugs, Lara

Wow you are on a roll. These are all beautiful.
I am going to try and do all my Christmas cards with papers I purchased last year and try not to buy any new ones. Wish me luck I need it :)
How many Christmas cards do you make each year?

These are so beautifully traditional. The colours and vintage papers you used gives them a wonderful sense of Christmas past.
