Okay, I am still contemplating this as my Christmas card… I say ‘contemplating’ because I have yet to actually take action… and since it is about 10 days from Christmas (and even fewer days before *mail* will arrive to people in time for Christmas, I think I’m in big trouble, LOL!
But I promise you that this card is simple… and it is hard to tell from the picture, but the card is Whisper White and there is a second layer that is 3 3/4 x 5 and then a third layer (raised embossed with the Finial press folder) on top of that (popped up with Dimensionals). The white ribbon is across the seam of the top layers and the bottom–and the greeting is on the bottom. Any horizontal greeting will do, and I think a good ‘Happy Holiday’s’ may suffice for my non-religious friends (if I can locate one!).
I do punch the ornament opening and then stamp the pinecones through it… it isn’t hard to do, but if you mess up, you can stamp it on a 2 x 2 inch white square and slip it under the punched layer (no one will be able to see!). Takes the pressure off of getting it right each time… so what do you think?
