An oldie


I made all my Christmas cards and Christmas thank you notes for 5 or 6 years...not sure exactly...last year I stopped and did the photo card...I still feel guilty about that, kwim? But making 110 or so cards in addition to what I make for the coffee shops just ain't gonna happen. I still make my Christmas thank you notes, though. I made this was one in the early years. I used navy linen cs, white linen cs, blue metallic text weight paper, a silver Pilot pen (edge the white linen cs), a Magenta stamp, silver pigment ink and embossing powder. It was much more time consuming than I thought. Lots of embossing, then cutting the image up in five pieces.
Thanks for looking!

oof!

tom hanks famously said, "there's NO CRYING in baseball" and i say "there's NO GUILT in cardmaking"!!!

besides, making unique cards for individuals and mass-producing dozens of the same card are two *TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTALLY* different things!

photo cards...with adorable twins in them...are AWESOME! (ps that silvery thank you is lovely!)

I feel as if I am back in the days when everything is perfection. Your card exemplifies beauty to me.
