Merry Christmas to all...

WOOHOOO! My Christmas cards for this year are finally finished and they went in the mail today ~ all 90 of them! This is the initial sample card I made, but my final card didn't change too much. I am so thrilled with how it turned out this year.

On the outside of the card, I used the Holiday Script and Fancy Flourishes sets from Lizzie Anne Designs. I also used this pretty paper from My Minds Eye. I trimmed the edge of the card & then used my EK Success scallop punch so you could see the row of photos on the inside of the card.

For the insert on the inside of the card, I used Photoshop Elements for the photos and sentiment & had them printed on a 4 x 8 photocard at an online printer called VistaPrint. The nice part about using photos like this is that we all didn't have to be perfect in the same picture.

And here are a few of my stacks during the assembly process. Thankfully, since the inside was all on one piece, everything went together pretty fast.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

What a great card - I love that row of photo's that included the furry family too. I'd need a huge card though since we have 6 cats and a dog!
