My Christmas card


I haven't made cards for so long, but Christmas is coming and guess what, I have to make my cards now. Mailing time will soon be closing in and they must get done. I decided to go with a tri-fold card and make it as easy and quick as I can to get about 30 of them made. I had some Avery shipping labels from a swap I did, so I covered it with a digital background paper and used an digital image as well mounting it on some SU red cardstock and using my gold pen to highlight the edges of the image and the tag. I love SU's River Rock CS, so I embossed the flaps with the
Swiss Dot folder. I added a ribbon to the top of the tag but I think I will change it to a solid red ribbon for my other cards. Inside I typed and attached my Christmas note with the highlights of my year for family and friends. And there you have it. Now to make twenty-nine more.

That card is beautiful, Norma! I so admire all of you cardmakers....I have a friend here who makes cards for EVERY holiday, birthday, anniversary, funeral, wedding, etc. I don't know how you all do it! But those of us who receive them really appreciate them!

Hope your mom is adjusting to her new situation. I'm sure it makes things a bit easier for you, too, and gives you a bit more time.

Take care and I'll chat with you soon!

XOXO,

Cyndi
