graham cracker christmas cards

social media.
it's the quickest and easiest way to reach out to someone.

and although i do blog, obviously, 
and just started a facebook page, 
i am waaay behind on the social media band wagon.

not to say that i don't like it, i am more of an old-fashioned girl who likes things like christmas cards that are stamped and addressed to my home.

and as the years go by, even though i continue to send them, i am getting less and less actual christmas cards from family and friends due to the social media option.

so whadd'ya say we make a fun christmas card today? 
one where folks will cherish and not worry about storing them.
well, at least in their mind and their belly that is...

come, take a look!
i made some edible cards!
let's see how i did it ok?

add the snowman details with food marker.
(dear santa, please send me photography lessons,a better camera,or a personal photographer assistant.)
all you need is more melted candy for the glue.
i signed them as "me" so i can deliver them in person.
i just wanna see their faces when they get 'em.
or you can package them and have them double as your gifts and card giving.
i don't now about you but i like these better than 
social media.

happy card sending!

  1. I'd love to receive one of your Christmas cards. They are all so pretty. I too an old fashioned. Social Media is very hard for me. It's just not my thing, but I do love getting cards in the mail!

  5. I am thinking these would look so nice at each Christmas place setting, nestled on the saucer alongside each coffee cup. I love the way they stand open, more versatile that way! But I am all set for Christmas dessert thanks to a certain dozen of snow-children who recently showed up at my door (wink, wink!), so I am thinking ahead for these as Valentines! And let me "second the motion"...grandparents would adore getting them!

  6. Hello yummy cards! This is so creative and fun. Regardless of social media or not, I still enjoy sending cards at Christmas (and throughout the year actually) but these edible options are something else entirely. Visiting via "FlusterBuster" link up from over at www.ritewhileucan.com where I post on all things related to paper and the lost art of letter writing. You might enjoy it.

  8. What a wonderful idea! Every Christmas we get together with the cousins and make some type of gingerbread dwelling. This would be fun to try. You packaged them nicely. I agree with you about the cards and social media. I just posted about that today. By the way your pictures are quite good.
    Blessings, Diane
