Christmas cards

I made 21 of these. I think next year I need to simplify. These have been embossed - both types, diecut, and stamped. I didn't have envelopes, so I even had to make those. And decided to use a border punch on the flaps.




Then I was short a card and had to make one more so it's different. I already had the green embossed piece left over from some cards I had made last year. The reds match better in person. The bird is double stamped - once with gold brilliance ink. I got the idea for the diecut tag behind the stamp from Lori at Papercrafts by SaintsRule!. I've seen it on some of her cards. I knew the card needed a little something more.

Thank you Tam for your card that was received by a very appreciative couple. We both loved the card plenty, but the envelope was like the frosting on a cake, with the cutout edges, so inventive and pretty!

The last deleted comment was mine, Tam.
