DIY Christmas posts will be starting tomorrow! Stay tuned! Day 6 of my 12 Days of Christmas did involve making something, though: thank you card designs. I love writing thank you cards the day after Christmas. Since my birthday is only one week before (coming up on Saturday!) I write them to anyone who gave me a Christmas and/or birthday present at the same time. I always feel like I need to hurry up and write the birthday ones by the day after Christmas, plus I just really like sending cards.
I had a fun time drawing these. I love scallops so naturally I put them on everything. I have also been practicing my banner drawing skills lately. I decided on colors that seem sort-of Christmas-y when you see them the day after Christmas, but that won't seem Christmas-y should I have leftover cards to use at other times during the year (smart, right? I know). They are adorably tiny just like my Christmas postcards, 3.5"x5", so they can be sent with a postcard stamp.
I will be selling a few sets of these through the One Lonely Apricot shop (in sets of 8 and 4)! I ordered a limited number of extras from my printer so act fast if you are interested. Also! I am giving one One Lonely Apricot blog reader a chance to win a set of 8!
This giveaway will end on Monday, December 19, at noon! The winner will receive them in the mail a few days after Christmas. To enter, you must be a follower of this blog. Simply leave a comment answering the question:
What are your favorite types of cards to write/send?
