I managed to get a round of Christmas cards done today. Four of "Holiday Happiness" cards and all but the final assembly on eight of the Manger cards.
I really wanted to use puffy stuff on the windows to look like snow but the transparency I used as the glass in the window wouldn't hold up to my heat gun. I used Stickles instead and while it doesn't show up well in the pictures, it looks nice.
It seems like this is version 37 of this card. I've tried different mediums to color this, different papers and different embellishments. When all was said and done, I decided less was more. I like "bling" as much as the next girl but shied away from it on this one so that the stamped image of the Baby Jesus was the star. I should be able to assemble the rest of the cards in less then 20 minutes. I would have finished them today but I had an impatient six year old waiting to decorate our Christmas tree and put out all of the other decorations.
