A Special Christmas Card

We are busy at the home office making this year’s Christmas card (thanks, Holly and Sharon!), and when I was deciding which card to send out this year, I fell in love with this one.

It’s an elegant, warm holiday greeting, and I was tempted to do it, but we send out several hundred cards, and while this card is simple, it’s not easy. How’s that for an oxymoron? As I’ve played with the Expressions Thinlits Dies, I’ve realized that, while they’re wonderful and fun (they feature the words love, thankful, and merry), they’re a little bit time consuming. It would definitely be overwhelming to be making hundreds of these. . .

That said, if you just need one or two Christmas cards for someone or something special, this is your card! So I thought I’d share. . .

Beautiful card! I agree, too time consuming! I recently rolled-out 25 Gold Foil "Merry" for a customer order - took me 1-1/2 hours. Can't even imagine a couple of hundred!! Maybe SU should start selling Wax Paper for these dies, lol!

Hi Shelli, maybe you should send a family photo for your Xmas card this year! You could use a.break! I see why you love that card too! Happy Holidays!

A great card. When I first started going to stamping classes there was a gal (Kelli Clark…you might know her) who said there are 3 kinds of cards to make for Christmas. The few are for the special family/friends who love to display and keep Christmas cards, the most are for those on the list that are happy to receive a card, and a hand made card at that. Then a very few ones for those who will look at it once, put it in a basket, then throw it away after Christmas. Your card is for the few, not only because of time needed but because of special-specialness of it. Happy Thanksgiving.

Shelli: I noticed in your post about Liam's oxygen and nasal cannula. My grandson was in the NICU for many weeks when he was born and had to be on oxygen. Evidently the nasal cannula coming across the face can break down the tissue on the cheeks after a time. My grandson now constantly has red, irritated cheeks. Just FYI there is a company that is now marketing Nasal Cannula covers. They adhere with Velcro and help protect the face.
The site is OXYCOUTURE.ORG I wish I had known about this before,
I hope this is of some help.
Prayers for Liam and I am glad you are doing so much better.
