Brrr! Christmas Greetings! Snowman Style

Last year I only made 1 Christmas card before the big rush, then all the cards I made during the rush ended up costing me double to ship and I needed to put them in bigger envelopes! I need to find a way to make great cards... but flat!

I also wanted to make them all year long, my biggest problem is I don't have the space to keep all my Xmas stuff out, so I came up with 2 possible solutions.
I randomly cut Xmas dies since I have regular paper around and keep them in a envelope. So when I am ready to do my cards I will have lots of dies ready to use. My other option is pick a weekend every few weeks and pull out all my Xmas stuff and work on cards.
We will see if either of these works!
