Snowflake Christmas

Merry Christmas!!!!  

This is the Christmas card that I sent out to my friends and family this year.  I always say I'm going to start making my cards in the summer and then I never do.  This year was no exception.  I didn't even start making them until this past Tuesday.  I made 50 of them in 2 days.  That has to be some kind of a record for me.  I mailed them out on December 22nd.  Hopefully most of them will arrive in time for Christmas.  I think next year I will try for a more Clean and Simple design.  Even though this card doesn't look too fancy there were a lot of layers.  The sentiment is heat embossed in sliver embossing powder.  The snowflakes are punched from a Sizzix Snowflake die using a white paper with silver specks.  On the inside I printed out Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I used MS Word to format the sentiment on the inside.  I also signed it from Scott, Emily and myself.  That saved me from having to hand write our signatures on 50 cards.  It's not as personal but I think that the handmade card makes up for the fact that I didn't personally sign it.

Julie, this is a really beautiful Christmas card. Fifty in two days??? Gosh, I cannot imagine getting that many done in that length of time. I am sure the recipients will love them.

BTW, I believe that is a new photo of you. It's very good.
