We always send out Christmas cards.  Every year.  No matter what.  

In years past, we have ordered way too many and still ran short, but this year Rob and I decided to only order a handful.
I chose a semi-expensive design, so I had to keep my 'short list' to under 25.
It was totally overwhelming at first, but it really forced me to prioritize the families
who have made the greatest impact in our lives over the past year. 

If you didn't receive one, fear not, here's you a little sneak peak!

Since we only mailed a few cards {we hand-delivered most of them} we added something special for the little ones; a book and lots of stickers.
For the adults, we created a CD which contained a collection of some of our family's favorite Christmas songs.

One of my favorite details about our Christmas cards were these fun and funky envelope wraps.
I searched for a template on Etsy; they wanted $12.50 for a blank template.
I thought that was too high so I made my own... and now you too can have it for FREE!
