Call me crazy, addressing cards is a holiday tradition that I look forward to. I spent a good portion of Day 5 (and 6 and 7) doing this. As it turns out, I didn’t take any photos on Dec 5th, so for Day 5 I chose to focus on our holiday cards.
The card is going in the album, along with an envelope that includes our return address. Inside the envelope I slipped in a sheet of a used stamp booklet. I like having a record of the stamp we use each year and I am especially enamored with this year’s poinsettia image.
I also hand lettered a simple “addressing cards” insert using the same gold ink that was used to address the envelopes. I am loving the gold + black combo these days.
Our holiday cards. I couldn’t settle on one cardstock texture so I ended up placing orders with two different vendors: one with Persnickety Prints on their pearl cardstock and another through WHCC using a different cardstock (premium matte) and I’m thrilled with the results of both.
The pearl cardstock from Persnickety Prints (pictured below) has a beautiful shimmery sheen that I love. The photo doesn’t do this cardstock justice, you really have to see it in person!
The ones from WHCC also turned out great, though, in my opinion, it has a completely different feel. Very crisp and modern and the cardstock is a nice and sturdy weight.
