Chirstmas cards

How many times have you hesitated to throw out a truly beautiful Christmas card that was almost a piece of art?

Every time I go to a craft show, Chapters or a specialty stationary store I am in awe of the selection of ornate, die cut, embellished cards available today. Many of them are beautiful enough to frame. So why not do just that? Keep those beautiful Christmas cards for the following year, put them in a photo frame that usually holds a picture. You get instant seasonal decor. Once Christmas is over you can return your photo back to the frame again.

Another use for those cards is to trim off the front of the card and use it next year as a gift tag. Punch a small hole in one corner and tie a pretty ribbon on it to attach it to your gift bag.
