During the year, I make about 350 Christmas cards that are sent out by my church (and my parents' church) to members of the two congregations. Click here for more information and a link to my Pinterest board for more cards I made in past years.
Because I make so many of these cards, they are simple in design and usually very flat. You know that I love to make square cards, but for the purposes of this project, the cards are 4.25 x 5.5. I generally make multiples of 4 (either 24 or 28) because I usually have a mat on the front of the card, and you can get 4 from a sheet.
Over the month of December, I'll show you the ones that haven't been blogged previously during the year.
For today's card, I used my favourite creche stamp - an old retired image from Market Street Stamps. I stamped it in early espresso and grounded it with a Paper Smooches Shadow stamp in Crumb Cake. I need help remembering where the sentiment came from (anyone?). I cut the image panel with a Papertrey die from Sending You to echo the 'shine' from the manger. For some colour and warmth, I dug out some very old Basic Grey Fruitcake DP and cut it with an Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die.
