Christmas Cards

I wanted to come up with a simple Christmas card design this year that wouldn't take too long to make.  But I kept fiddling with it, and I ended up with something more time-consuming than I really wanted.  Punching the edges of the card took a long time.  Making one isn't bad...twenty-five is a little much.  And then I couldn't just stamp and be done with it.  I decided to use clear embossing powder to fancy it up a bit.

You can see the shine and texture a little bit in this photo.

And then the strips of Mistletoe paper on the inside, the cranberry strips on the outside, the bow... so these cards are still a work in progress.  AND I still have to go back and stamp a sentiment on the inside.  My daughter seems to be rearranging the furniture, so off I go...  Merry Christmas!

  1. It's hard not to stop fussing until your cards look just right, isn't it. These look great. Nice job!

    Merry Christmas to you and yours,
