I used to make Christmas cards when I was a kid. That stopped when I thought it was much easier and faster to buy them. Then when I moved to Japan, I learnt that many of my Japanese friends had a practice of making their own nengajo (new year cards). They often made a little collage with their family photos and printed it on cardstock. I loved that there was a personal touch to these cards. So I began making my own festive cards again.
This year, my cards spoke of my love affair with MT tapes. I used simple materials and had a fun time coming up with varied designs. Here are a few.
Do you make your own cards too?
