My Christmas Card

This year I 'narrowed down' my Christmas card list to 160 (yes, really!!) so I had to design a simple, mass-producible card. Here's what I came up with:

In the end I wasn't completely 100% happy with it, but I knew that if I procrastinated any longer I just wouldn't get ANY made.
I've used my favourite Fine Flourish background stamp, and the little tree from Jolly Bingo Bits with a little rhinestone star on top. The sentiment is from A Beautiful Season, stamped in Early Espresso ink.
I've also used 2 new punches from the Mini - the 1" Square and the Postage stamp, along with the 1-1/4" Square. The colours I've used are Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas with your friends and family and a joyous year ahead. Stay safe over the holiday season!

  1. Not only am I impressed that you know 160 people but that you find the time to make and send 160 cards. I don't know how you do it. As the recipient of one of the 160 cards, I can tell you IRL it's effective because of it's simplicity and people have commented on how nice it is. Thank you for all the effort that goes into your projects and cards and blog updates.

  2. 160 people, wow, and I'm one of them. Thanks to your Christmas Card classes each month, I'm able to send out around about 70, (with a few extras made at home). Thanks for a great year of inspiration, have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and enjoy all that the holiday break has to offer. Helen Cooke
