Decisions, decisions. Craft retreat is next month. I usually do Christmas cards. That is all about the math...how many cards. With the price of folded cardstock I can cut and fold my own. How many can I get out of a 11 X 17 piece of cardstock...four is the number Far Guy and I came up with. Then there is the decision of metallic or matte cardstock. Oh and the envelopes should they be metallic red or elegant white lined with red? How many pound paper should I strive for 73? 81? or 105?? How will my design fit on the card...will it look good? What will the card say inside...should I try embossing something...or is that too card fashion forward for me?
Glitter on the cut out...no maybe sequins...or some of the rub on jewel tone stuff Far Guy uses sometimes.
Am I rushing the season a bit? Perhaps. Have you any idea how many tiny bits of paper have to be punched out for my design? That should keep me busy for just a few days.
FYI we usually send out about 125 cards....all crafted one at a time...by elves....HA!
