FFC01 - Jesus is Wonderful


There's a new Christmas challenge called Festive Friday. The challenge this week is a colour challenge:


I love this colour combination for Christmas and decided to get started on my Church Christmas cards - I'm making 300 this year, so I need to stay on top of them. This new challenge will be a good bi-weekly reminder for me to make at least 40 a month! I usually make 12 of each design, so that I can balance between the fun of designing new cards and the efficiency of mass-production.

I used a Stampabilities background stamp called Jesus is Wonderful and a manger stamp from Market Street Stamps, all embossed in silver and then matted on white and red.

Whaaaat?!? That's like a Christmas card a day from here on out! You must have a lot of orders, right? I don't know how you do it. These colors are perfect for a baby Jesus card ... love him in the middle of your text band!
