40 Cards!

I made 40 cards for our cast and crew to thank them for doing such a great job in our Christmas play at our church. We performed a play called "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever". It was a hoot!! Everyone in the cast had to play kids, so it was a great excuse to goof off and have a lot of fun. I wore high pigtails, a cute little skirt, freckles, false eyelashes, and LOTS of dark pink (kind of like this Rose Red paper).

This photo shows some of the color combos that I used for my cards. The ones with the Rose Red and the Not Quite Navy cardstock base are probably my favorite combinations. I started out by using the Flannel background stamp, but when I used my Print Patterns background stamp, I liked the playful look it made better. After stamping the snowflake from the Perfect Presentation hostess stamp set, I inked the entire 1-1/4" square of paper with Versamark and heat embossed the paper with iridescent ice embossing powder. It added a touch of glitter, which just seems to make a Christmas card complete.

Now I have to get my butt in gear and make another 50 or so Christmas cards to send out to my family! I better get a move on!

Even though it's such a busy time of year....I LOVE Christmas!!!
