Blogmas Day 5: Handmade Christmas Cards

As the postage deadline is fast approaching to get your cards and presents to your loved ones on time I thought it was a good time to start making my christmas cards. I love making cards. I make them every year for all occasions christmas, birthdays, thank you cards, congratulatory cards, you name it I've probably made it. I'm not sure where this tradition of making cards has come from but it seems to have stuck and I love doing it. It makes them a little more special knowing someone took the time and made the extra effort. It's not the easiest task making christmas cards for all of your loved ones so I thought I would hunt around for some inspiration to give you some really simple ideas and I'll show you what I've come up with this year. So here it goes...
