Church Christmas Card Project Day 9 - Merry


For the past number of years, I have made photo Christmas Cards for a friend. She has decided this is the final year, so we wanted to design something really special.

When she showed me the photo for this year, I loved the black and white and the length of the layout. I suggested that we take advantage of that and make a long card that would fit into a red, No 10 envelope.

We decided on a rich red, sparkly silver and white colour scheme. I made 80 of these - the most labour-intensive part was the tag, but using a MISTI made it go fairly quickly.

I used
-Papertrey Merry die
-MFT stitched tag die
-Concord & 9th Perfectly Penned (which already had a 'from the' as part of another stamp)
