Christmas in July… on Boxing Day… in July.

mmmhmm.  Confused yet?  Anyway, I never did post the Christmas card I sent out to family and friends this year, so here it is:

Christmas Card 2011

I had taken the Christmas version of the Online Card class, and one of the days focused on using photos on your card – a technique I (obviously) used here.  I created a template that allowed me to punch 4 holes in the green layer of the card, so each corner of the picture tucks into it, holding it in place.  This way, the recipient can just take the picture out and keep it.  The snowflakes were stamped with white craft ink using a Hero Arts stamp, the Merry was cut out with a Papertrey Ink letter die, and the Christmas stamp is from PTI as well.  I used circle punches to create the holly leaves, and some white little irock gems that I coloured red for the berries.

Thanks for stopping in!
