Slightly Askew Christmas

Merry Christmas Eve, friends!!!

I can NOT believe that Christmas is here!  There is a WHOLE lot of anticipation and excitement at our house right now and it's awesome :)

Christmas cards are one of my very favorite parts of Christmas.  I LOVE snail mail so the abundance of it that shows up in December makes my heart happy.  Even though we see tons of pictures of friends and family on social media and such, there is something special about receiving cards. 

This year we opted for a trifold card and I love how it turned out.

Gold lined envelopes are a special touch I love adding to all of my clients orders. :)



When you opened the card, this was the folded over panel.


EEEK!!!  I loved getting to write a little something about each of the kids on the inside.






 And the back center panel.  


I'm usually tapped out of creativity when it comes to our own cards, so mixing up the style and going with the square tri-fold spiced things up a bit for me creatively.

Annnd...... on to the best part - my clients cards!  I can't tell y'all how much I enjoy working on cards.  I'm beyond flattered when people ask me to be a little part of their Christmas and this year had the pleasure of working with over 75 clients.  There were lots of Christmas babies announced, a sweet toddler's first Christmas at home, a pregnancy announcement and an adoption announcement.  There were family letters and poems and a card from 10 years ago recreated.  I always feel privileged that people trust me with these special announcements and I'm not going to lie, I like that I often get a sneak peek at people's photos :)

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of my Slightly Askew clients!  

Now, here's a sampling of the cards from this season! ENJOY!!!


Merry Christmas Eve!!!
