Merry Christmas

I created a lot and I mean  a lot of Christmas cards
for the Tutti Design store (though they aren't up there yet ...sigh)!

This one is another favorite of mine....
not only pretty, but an easy mailer.
I like that, I do make loaded cards and it's not too bad to mail
those out when you only have a few to send here and there,
but Christmas is another matter
as one year I made those folded Christmas trees
and sent out a bunch and each one was $2.34 to
live and learn as they say!!

For this card I used a red card stock base,
then used a snowfall embossing folder.
I die cut from a foil paper 'Christmas Night'.
The sentiment was SU Four The Holidays stamped in SU real red....
that's it easy peasy!

Wow! Diane, this is so delicate and incredibly elegant! Your expertise in cutting foil CS and adhering it is no small feat! I love this card (and yes, now the price increase is $2.54) I don't understand when it is only 1-2 ounces. I wish the limit was 1/2 inch. LOL Wishing won't make it happen. Beautiful card! xx

It's always a kicker when you have to pay extra postage....but for some reason that never stops me from putting buttons on cards I have to mail. :-) Lovely card! The shiny die cut is fantastic.

The foil really adds a lot of glam, very pretty. Thank you so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge

This is soooooo pretty! I'm all about the one postage stamp Christmas cards. I wonder if some of mine might go over, but I sure hope not. This card just goes to show you don't have to load it up to make it beautiful. Live and learn, for sure!
