The Twelfth Day of Christmas!

Well, we made it to Day 12! I hope it was worth the wait, or that you at least had fun along the way. Here it is. My Christmas Card...I made 100 of these to send to friends, family, past Workshop Hostesses and Loyal Customers and class attendees. I had quite a production line set up!
I cut all my cardstock to the right size first. This card opens so the spine is at the top...perfect to hang on a piece of string, so it's still the right way up! I stamped 'merry& bright' in Elegant Eggplant and punched them out with the Small Oval punch. The star has been stamped in Bordering Blue, which has been stamped off once. Next I stamped the little row of asterisks from "All in a Row" eye, I might add! I got pretty good by the 100th one! The 'branch' is the swirl from"Scribble This". Next I stamped the two ornaments, and I used a ruler to draw the string with my Bordering Blue marker, and drew the little bow by hand. Then came the task of putting them all together. There's nothing for it but to put on some Christmas Carols and sing along as you work (I'm sure this makes the cards come out better!).
I hope you like it, and I truly wish I could have sent one to all of you. Merry Christmas and thankyou all for your support!
