All in the Family Christmas

A personalised Christmas Card! I think this must be someone else's family though...or maybe our dog is very dirty, and I've dyed my hair!
For the background, I've used various stamps from "Many Merry Messages" and "Peaceful Wishes", stamped in Mellow Moss ink on Mellow Moss cardstock. I've used Watercolour Paper for the main image, and the main greeting, matted on Buckaroo Blue cardstock. The word 'from' is actually the "From the Heart" message in All Year Cheer I, and I've just inked the word 'from' with a Basic Black marker. 'US!' is Classic Alphabet, and I've used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to add some shadows for depth. I've nipped the edges of the Mellow Moss cardstock with the Slit Punch (I've drawn a dot on the underside of my punch so I can line it up evenly each time), and then some "Vintage" brads in the corners.
Now, I don't think I'll be whipping up 100 of these for my Christmas cards this year, but I'll be doing a few for some special family members!

  2. I love this card, although it would be time consuming to do mass amounts..I think it would be worth it.
