Between my friend, Christina, and myself - we made 50 cards (obviously) and had them all a standard size to simplify it. We went with 4x6. Basically, we treated it like we were making a normal card, with a decorative back. I do not believe I'm much of an artsy person without VERY specific instructions, so this was a bit of a challenge to me to be creative. And, I was quite impressed with myself! Once got all the cards made, we laid them out on a table and each took 25. This is what they all looked like laid out:
After we picked our cards, our work together was done. I went home and cut out numbers using red cardstock on my Silhouette Cameo. I used a sticker maker to stick the numbers on the cards (although glue would've worked fine too.) After that, all I had left was writing out the messages on the back! The dating divas' blog recommends that you do 2/3 compliments, 1/3 services and a half of a 1/3 for Christmas activities. That came out to 14 compliments, 7 services and 4 activities. Christina and I wrote that out and shared some of them with each other so the brainstorming wasn't as difficult either. :) I decided to type out my messages because would it be fun to do this again a different year? And how much more fun would it be if you could change up the messages and NOT remake the cards?! YEAH!! That's my kind of project!! So, I typed them up, cut them out and taped them either just to the back of the card, or onto card stock and THEN cut them out. After that, all that was left was hanging the beautiful work that I'd done! And, here it is!
