Christmas Card '08

I'm back! I have been lost without my computer this week! Those problems are hopefully behind me, because I have quite a few things to share with you.

I finally managed to come up with a Christmas card design for this year. I always struggle with this, because the card must be easy to mass produce, not cost me an arm & a leg to buy the supplies or mail the finished cards, yet still look cute and festive.

This card is all SU except for the rhinestones. I couldn't help myself--Christmas cards just have to sparkle, right?

Stamps: Snow Swirled (SU)
Paper: Old Olive, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon (SU), rhinestones (The Paper Studio)
