Merry Christmas!


This is the last Christmas card I'll post this year. I'm going to try to make some every month next year because I suddenly have many co-workers to give cards to. And I need to get better at making man-cards because most of my department is men. Okay, specifically, I am the only female teacher in my department and the other 8 teachers are men. I really need to improve the man card thing. Really.


I love this sentiment from Whipper Snapper and I used Platinum Stickles to give it a bit of sparkle. I am pleased that the distress inks I used are such a close match to the designer paper. Sponging makes almost everything better, in my opinion, and it brought this sentiment to life and brought the whole card together.


I had an idea in my head about this snowflake flurry going on here, but I am not sure I executed it as well as it looked in my head. The idea is there, but my imagining of it was much cuter and fuller... I'll have to give this idea a go again in the new year.

I sincerely wish all my faithful friends and readers and peaceful Christmas and a joyful New Year!
