I won’t lie, Christmas cards can be exhausting! Especially when you have dozens to do and realize it’s already the 13th of December! Eek
I spend so much time picking out the perfect cards to send all around the US to family and friends, but when it comes time to seal them up and pop them in the mail, it becomes a mad dash.
This year I decided to spend just as much time picking out the card as I would picking out what would go on the outside.
Step 1: Peruse StickerApp’s website to find the perfect Christmas card embellishments! They have an awesome inspiration Instagram that came in handy, too. I ended up making custom “Merry Christmas” stickers and it was seriously so easy and fun. Within minutes my order was placed and I could turn to actually writing my cards (no easy feat).
Step 2: Write a heartfelt message inside each card to let the recipient know they are being thought of. Four cups of coffee and three hand cramps later, the cards are complete!
Step 3: Seal each envelope with my festive StickerApp stickers that arrived in the mail! The perfect way to close an envelope instead of having to lick each one. Let’s be serious, that glue tastes not so great…
Step 4: Add a Christmas stamp as the final celebratory touch! There is nothing better than having a Charlie Brown stamp to make the card feel extra special when it arrives to it’s recipient.
Step 5: And of course, a red pen for writing the address on the front!
Step 6: Make sure to get them in the mail before Christmas :)
Note: Step 6 is crucial! A few years ago my mother got a bit behind and it resulted in her turning our family Christmas card into a “New Years” card. Since that dreaded year she has been much more on top of getting them out on time :) Like mother, like daughter.
Since these cards definitely can’t be transitioned into “New Years” cards, I better get going! Where is that mailman?? Next year I’m totally making return address labels!
