My Christmas Card

This is the Christmas card I sent out this year. I sent 120 out to friends and family, and I would love to have been able to send out more! To those of you who didn't receive one, consider this your Cyber-card, with my warmest Christmas wishes!
I kept it simple this year and didn't even use a Christmas set, or Christmas colours. The set I used is called "Sweet Sampler". I inked the main image in River Rock, and then rolled the edges of the stamp in Mellow Moss ink before stamping on Naturals Ivory cardstock. I then sponged the edges of the cardstock in River Rock ink. The word 'joy' is actually the word 'enjoy' from the same set. I just inked 'joy' with a Not Quite Navy marker. I tore the bottom edge of the Blue Bayou piece, and sponged the edges in Blue Bayou ink. The ribbon is Mellow Moss Taffeta. I stamped En Francais in River Rock ink for the background, and I designed these cards to have the 'spine' at the top. I know a lot of people hang their Chrissy cards on blinds or tinsel, so this way the card doesn't have to hang sideways.
I probably won't be on here again before Christmas, so I'll wish you all a very safe and merry Christmas, surrounded by those you love!
