Our Families Christmas Card

This is my families Christmas Card for this year. The Peace on Earth stamp is from CTMH 's Just for the Holidays stamp set. I have learned to go simple. My first year I made a double four panel door with die cut wreaths on each door including bows and die cut doorknob plates. I figured it had taken me about 30 minutes to make each card and I had made 50 of them. Though I had started in the summer, but never again, since most are probably long gone in to the garbage dump. I do know of a few friends who still have their card since they knew how much time went in to them. This was last years card which did not take as long but longer then this year. Let it go on the record I do enjoy making them regardless of how much time. This card I used a Cuttle bug embossing folder with CTMH Holiday Red paper and sanded it. The elf is from CTMH Merry Pursuits stamp set.

  1. Great cards. I too made a big production of my first Christmas card with CTMH using brads and multiple layers and found when one was returned because of an address issue that the postal machines tear up the envelopes. I love what you have done with yours. I don't think I am getting cards out this year. Maybe new year cards.
