Finally - done making Christmas cards
I am certainly behind the 8-ball this year! I am just now getting done with making my Christmas cards. I decided to go simple and easy this year.
This red card was made easy by using a die-cut to cut the snowflake. I used silver card stock to create the silver border, a silver star brad, then a strip of silver ribbon. Silver does not photo copy well, but you get the idea.
This is very unusual for me - I am not overly fond of green, but the new 'funky' green seemed kind of spunky and I just had to give it a try.
I embossed Mary and Baby Jesus with white embossing powder. My paper was too cold and warped really bad, so the card has spent more than 24 hours under a pile of books!
I decided a white ribbon would detract from the beauty simplicity of this card. What do you think?
Oh, both cards were sprayed with a special shimmer which does not show. That was fun, until I put on too much spray and ran the ink. Nothing like having to redo a couple cards. Live and learn!
