Holiday Cheer!

XmasCards08 005

This is the first in my Christmas series. Every year since I started making my own cards I make about a half dozen cards of different designs to send to our family and friends. Being active duty military many of our friends and family are far away from us so Christmas is the PERFECT time to reconnect with them and find out what's happening with them and let them know what's going on with us. I write family newsletter every Christmas that I enclose in our cards.


Card Deets: The DP is from HL. The card base is Papertrey. The stamps are also Papertrey, Board and Beams and the Home for the Holidays addition. I LOVE these two sets. If I had more time I would have done a gazillion variations of this card. The sentiment is also Papertrey. The image is colored with Copics and The ribbon is Mike's. The background of the main image is stamped with snowflakes in Platinum ink from Versamagic. It's MUCH more visible IRL. I used my nesties to cut out the main image and sentiment.
