Christmas in January


I meant to post this in January, because I actually did get in done within the month of January. I challenged myself to do at least one Christmas card a month, so I'm one for one at the moment. I used Flourishes ornament set that I actually didn't get until it was too late to make cards with it in '08. However, I saw so many gorgeous cards made using that set that I knew I would use it in '09. I also used my Snowflake Embossing Folder and my SU taffeta ribbon, and my MS punch for the top and added the half-balls in the silver. It really perked it up. This was simple but I really like how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a wonderful week-end.

Christmas elegance at its finest!!! I love ALL the gorgeous details, and the striking placement of the silver half balls on the border punch is genius!!! Someone's holiday is going to be so much brighter when he/she receives this beauty!!!

Hugs!
