it’s beginning to look alot like Christmas….
As this summer continues on its path to set new records for heat and humidity, my thoughts turn to last winter when it seemed like the snow would never melt. Before I know it, it will be time to shop for Christmas presents and get those cards in the mail. In the spirit of trying to be prepared for the holidays, here is my very first Christmas card for 2010.
Although these are not exactly traditional Christmas colors, I love them and think they will make someone happy if they get this card in the mail.
All the sentiments are contained in a digital graphic I designed months ago when it felt like winter. Would you like it? Please be my guest. Here is a PDF file to download.
In case you’re curious where to get the textured magenta mat I used, it is from the American Crafts Foil Collection. The silver snowflake was created with my very first Martha Stewart punch, a gift from a crafter friend in Texas. The 1″ sparkly navy and silver ribbon is from my stash (bought at Michaels last year.) Just for fun, I added a purple jewel to the snowflake. Why purple? I love purple.
This is the type of card that would be very easy to make in multiples. Once I created the graphic, the rest was easy.
Now, if only buying all the presents for my friends and family was that simple.
