Last night, it started snowing right after dinner time here. It was the really big, gorgeous flakes....the kind that not only sticks, but accumulates pretty quickly! It definitely helped to put me into the Christmas card making "spirit"! I don't know about you guys, but I make several different types of Christmas cards. Some, I make pretty elaborate (which also equals time consuming)...some are fairly simple (easy to mass produce)...and others are somewhere in between. Well, last night I was working on the easier ones. I wanted something that could be easily mass produced, but still "pretty"! :-) As I was in the middle of creating...my DH came over to see. I could tell right away that he wasn't too pleased...hehehee. He was trying so hard to find a way to tactfully say, "Can't you make something a little less 'girly'"? So, I started another one...definitely less "girly". I do plan on using both types. (I will share the "girly" one with you tomorrow)
I had the hardest time making this card!! I kept trying to add ribbon...then talking myself out of it (after all it was supposed to be "manly"), then trying to add ribbon...then talking myself out of it. LOL!! Finally I decided on the two brads. I still think it would look "prettier" with ribbon! ROFLOL!! My DH was pleased, though. I can promise you that the "girly" card I'll share with you tomorrow definitely has some ribbon!!!!
Because this is a pretty simple card, the stamping is pretty straight forward. If you do have any questions about anything on this, please email me.
Have a wonderful Friday!!! ~Laurie
