The 25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 1

We love paper and mixed media art here at Bumbershoot Designs and Supplies. The Christmas season provides wonderful opportunities to showcase these art forms. Cards especially, are abundant this time of year, and come in such an amazing array of styles, designs, colors.

Recently daughter Emma and I were talking about how we could bring more mixed media and paper art into our lives this holiday season. As we were musing about holiday cards and advent calendars, Emma had the great idea that we should mail ourselves a card each day during December, sort of an advent Christmas card project.

And so you have it! The 25 days of Christmas cards! We've selected 25 lovely holiday cards and are opening one a day until Christmas Day. Some of the carts are made by me, some are made by other artists, and some were purchased just because we liked the design or the sentiment. Inside each card we've inserted a seasonal greeting or quote to inspire us throughout the holiday season. We're sending these through the mail to ourselves, because what the heck, getting mail is part of the fun!

So without further ado we present you with Day 1's card and quote:

"I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year." 
-- Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Card by Dorothy Jane.
