Too early for Holiday Gifts?


Is it too early to make holiday gifts? Guess not!

I made some holiday card sets for my aunt last year, she likes it and asking for more, so here you go Aunt!!!!




 I tried to keep it as "f'lat" as possible, oh boy, sending a bulky handmade cards with layers, I need to put it in a padded envelope, and that cost me $6.99 just to send ONE card overseas, some months there are just more birthdays than other....I better start making more flatter card that can fit into regular envelope.



well, this one is not going to save much for shipping as it is a set of cards in a box : (

I SO need to make flatter cards that can be mailed in a regular envelope, too. I have such a hard time with that! ;) I need to take some tips from you because these are fabulous! Love the embossed dots and white on white layers, and LOVE that little stamped deer with his cheery red bow! So sweet, and I adore how you've packaged them. The belly band on the side of the box is such a great idea because you can still see the card image beneath!
