My friends and family should have received their cards by now so I can share this with you....
I told you all that I thought this snowman was cute. And even after using him on so many cards and projects - I STILL like him.
This is what is called a "joy fold" card - I don't know how it got the name - maybe someone named Joy popularized it? Whatever - it worked well for me this year.
The blue part lifts up to reveal the sentiment. The wish big circle element is on dimensionals and it holds the focal point down until you are ready to open the card. This gave me space to have a cute card front, record my holiday message, include a short note about our family AND include a wallet size photo of my girls.
I am not good about getting cards out during the year, but Christmas Cards are MY THING. I know lots of stampers make a variety of cards at Christmas but for me that creates the AGONY of deciding "which card goes to who?"
It is much better for me to mass produce one themed card. And I make a layout with the card, photo and letter which serves as the "divider" in our chronological Christmas scrapbook to indicate the change in year.
INFO: College girl should arrive home today or tomorrow so my posts may not be daily during the holidays. You need to be finishing up your holiday preparations and enjoying your family anyway - not surfing blogs! (grin)
I'll be here - just maybe not everyday. Have a great weekend!
