Here are the Christmas Cards that we made at my Stamp-a-Stack last week. Each person made 3 of each design and we also had matching envelopes.
I will try to get some pictures up of the "stepped up" version of these cards. A few pearls, some glitter and ribbon can really add a lot to a card.
These cards I kept very simple for a couple of reasons; 1. Some people make and send a lot of cards. I didn't want to bog them down with too many layers. 2. When you go to send these in the mail, some post offices are very particular and you end up paying a lot of extra postage when they feel that ribbon knot or brad on your card. 3. I had some new stampers and didn't want to overwhelm them with too many tools or techniques. 4. My husband wanted to come home at a decent hour that night so time was also a factor.
