snowman cupcake Christmas card — family holiday card ideas
I’m not adverse to photograph holiday cards, to opening an envelope and seeing your gorgeous children and then trying to figure out to whom they belong. I like seeing these updates, especially from those outside my daily circle. But I can’t bring myself to put my own gorgeous child’s face on the front of a card. Maybe I’m just overly shy on her behalf. And I certainly couldn’t put a family portrait (eek! I’m horribly un-photogenic). So my newish tradition is to put a sweet version of us. Here is our snowman cupcake Christmas card.
Versions from days of yore (you can see last year’s gingerbread house Christmas card here). Look how the little one has grown!
This year I chose cupcakes. I love the deals at shutterfly (you can always find some sort of discount and free shipping and whatnot), so I used a simple, folded card with a lime green frame. And for those on my Christmas card list who haven’t received theirs yet and are reading this (ie. those on my husband’s list), sorry I ruined the surprise, for I’m sure opening a Christmas card from yours truly is the highlight of your season.
And you can see, I did stick my gorgeous kid’s face on the inside.
