I consider it a small miracle that I got Christmas cards out before Christmas this year considering the fact that about half of my wedding thank yous were still waiting to be written only 2.5 weeks ago. But really, how could I deny the world the chance to see MORE of my wedding pictures? It would be selfish of me, right?
I used Cardstore to make our cards this year and it was so easy! Seriously, the hardest part of the process was choosing which one of their hundreds of adorable designs to use (and which of our wedding photos to use, of course!). Cardstore even printed our return address on the envelopes at no extra charge! Such a huge time saver. They will also print the recipient addresses and add postage for you so you never have to touch the cards to get them to your friends and family! I wanted to make sure I got my thank-yous out before my Christmas cards so I didn’t take advantage of that service this time, but you better believe next year (when I maybe have my life together a little more) I will be defiantly be utilizing those services.
The cards have started rolling in from our friends and family and I knew I wanted to find a cute way to display them in our entry way. Our house is fairly new so I have a lot of blank space (baby) to work with! This washi tape tree came together in about 15 minutes (plus the several hours it took me to locate red washi tape…isn’t it Christmastime?!) and I could not be more happy with the way it turned out!
(Of course ours had to go on the very top. I could look at those beautiful pictures and my handsome husband all darn day.)
I think this project overall is pretty self explanatory, but I let me offer just a little advice if you are considering recreating…it’s HUGE. It takes up almost the whole wall from top to bottom and I’m hoping to fit 22-25 cards on it. If you get tons of cards this would be a good way to display your favorites, but probably not all of them!
