I made a little progress.

I thought this might take me a while, but once I got started on our Christmas cards, the design just sort of came together. Of course, it looks nothing like what I started with. Does anyone else have an evolving process? I love how digital gives you the freedom to do that without wasting goodies. I started with a totally different photo, colors, and fonts. The only thing that's the same is the basic layout which is obviously pretty simple.

I'm excited to see these since we decided to go with postcards this year. That saves a few steps since there are no envelopes to stuff and our return address is already printed on the cards along with the basic message. All we'll have to do is sign them and add the addresses--except for the ones we'll deliver by hand or that go with gifts. They were a bit more pricey, but I think it will be worth it!
It did speed things up to use some premade elements. The background and frame are by Jessica Sprague.

Hey Crystal. I popped over here from the preggo pubsters thread. What a cute card and I love that photo. I haven't done any card yet and I want to. You have given me hope.

That is the prettiest little boy I think I have ever seen. And Nana is NOT partial. That smile can melt your heart no matter how bad you may be feeling. Love nana
