Well I think all my friends and family have received their Christmas Cards this year, so its probably safe to post it for my viewers. I received a ton of compliments already from all my loved ones about this card. It was a very time consuming card to mass produce, but very well worth it.
I wanted a card that would contain not just a family portrait, but my children's school photo's, and a newsletter/poem as well. I originally saw this Pocket Christmas Card idea on another blog but I'm not exactly sure which one it was. I think it was the Verve Blog, if anyone else recognizes it, let me know so I can give the original artist credit. I actually took two of the pocket cards ideas and combined them into one card, and changed the papers/stamps to make the card my own.
The card is a 'Pocket Card'. If you have never made a pocket card before, you can email me for instructions or visit Splitcoaststampers.com. I used Stampin Up! Riding Hood Red Designer paper and the retired 'Let It Snow' stamp set for the front of the card. The 'snow' is simply ripped white cardstock. The sentiment tag is Cuttlebug Tiny Tags. I hand-cut the two tags and embossed with 'Swiss Dots' and the 'With Love' Sentiment. I put a Christmas Poem on one tag, but you could easily put a brief newsletter on the tag too, and a family picture on the other tag. I adhered both tags together with an eyelet and ribbon.
What a FANTASTIC card ... I have NO doubt the recipients were all quite impressed!!! Beautifully done!!ReplyDelete
We are home from the hospital and the biopsy is completed ... Mark is in some discomfort but he ate some soup and is now laying down for awhile. The surgeon had no doubts on what the results would be (nor do we!!). Chemo starts Friday!! We are wishing you and your lovely family the best Christmas ever!!!
What an amazing Christmas Card this year.
I read your verse and got misty eyed.
Your work is beautiful and so is your heart as well. I am blessed to know you and call you my friend.
