Easy to mail (yay!) Merry Christmas card
Yes, this is my second holiday card post this month. My tulips are in the yard working their way up out of the recently frozen earth and I am making Christmas cards. Goodness. But, I am sticking with that New Years resolution and getting Christmas cards done throughout the year. Two this month...I am ahead of schedule!
I am sending a box of cards home to my mom and in doing so have realized that a lot of my cards are not mail friendly- cards with big bows or big flowers or big bows with big flowers in the middle. (Standard envelopes need not apply for my cards.) So, I challenged myself to make an easy to mail card and I am happy with the results...although I really do think it could use a big bow on it.
The card base is Recollections navy blue speckled card stock from Michaels. Ivory card stock was dry embossed using Anna Griffin's embossing folder Poppy (I just love that folder!!). Cheery Lynn's doily die, Lilith, die cut the blue card stock. Spellbinders Splendid Circles die cut ivory paper and JustRite's Christmas Vintage Labels One stamp was applied as shown. Two small sheer ribbons were the final touch.
The card came together quite quickly and will be a mass produced card! Hope you like it, Mom. You will be getting a stack before November! :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Easter Weekend.
