Advent Calendar of Cards Day 19 (2013)

In the fall of 2013, my husband and I rented an apartment for three weeks in Paris. I knew before we even left for the trip that my card that year would have the word "noel" in it. I wrote the word with the side of an automatic pen, brought it into photoshop, and copied, flipped, and repeated it. I printed it in burgundy on chartreuse paper from Paper Source and added the two dots above the "e" on each card in gold marker.

I went all out on this card and bought burgundy envelopes which I addressed with gold marker. The mail service was terrible that year. They were mailed something like December 17 and some did not arrive until mid-January, including cards that were staying in our town. After that, I switched to sending postcards. I can't bring myself to use labels although that would streamline the process even more.
