Did you know that over 1.6 billion Christmas cards are purchased and sent every year, and Christmas is the most popular season to send cards? I love to send and receive cards this time of year so it’s not that surprising, but 1.6 billion! Wow! I usually don’t purchase my cards, I prefer to make them. I am the Crafty Blog Stalker after all. 🙂
A good friend and I got together recently and devoted a whole Saturday just to making Christmas cards. We had so much fun and came up with some pretty cute handmade Christmas cards if I do say so myself. We used the stamps, paper, and tools that I had on hand. I am not going to include a tutorial for each card, but I hope if you are on the search for what to make for your Christmas cards this year that these can help inspire you.
Please feel free to pin each card that tickles your fancy so that you don’t lose it, and maybe you can help inspire your friends too when they see your pins!
The first four are my cards.

We had a fabulous time together. We listened to Christmas songs and talked and talked. The holidays are all about spending time with friends and family after all, so it was a perfect day.
When all was said and done I liked ALL of the cards that we made. So much in fact that I would have a hard time picking a favorite. I would love to hear which one is your favorite.
