Buy or DIY: Holiday Cards

Each year I waiver on whether or not to do a DIY christmas card.  Last year, I made mini rosemary and boxwood wreath cards and I loved them, I sometimes revel in the simplicity (and beauty) of sending a purchased design.  This year, I decided to go ahead a buy a design that I found (and loved!) from Zazzle, but did want to add some sort of homemade touch.

Since my envelopes were brown, I thought it would be fitting to wrap them up in cream string and secure it all with a metallic wax seal. Not only is it cute (and very secure) but I had all of the materials on-hand, so it cost me next to nothing.

So even if your card itself is purchased, don’t feel like you can’t add a personal or handmade touch.  I also thought about filling envelopes with fake snow – which would have been so cute!  Maybe next year!

It’s YOUR turn!  Tell me… Do you buy or DIY?
