Here is the Christmas card design I liked so much I made seven identical cards to send out. Tonight I am addressing them and sending them off. I always include a Happy New Year greeting inside just to cover off the lateness of (ahem) Canada Post.The sentiment is gorgeous hand-lettered calligraphy that Suzanne at Quietfire Design turns into rubber for those like me who are penmanship-challenged!
I mounted the entire front panel onto a piece of thin foam to uniformly lift it up off the white back panel. I edged the raised panel with gold ink and included a few spatters of gold amongst the red to tie it all together.
I originally was going for Clean and Simple (CAS) for this mass-produced card, which would have made it ideal for the Christmas Card Challenge, but they are pretty forgiving over there, so I will enter it anyways!
Speaking of mass-producing (7 of one design is a record for me, I think) my MISTI (Most Incredible Stamping Tool Invented) Precision Stamper from My Sweet Petunia has been such a joy to use to enable me to stamp crisp, clear images and serial stamp. After 25 years of stamping, I did not think I would find a new tool as useful and clever as this. Works with unmounted, clear and cling-mounted stamps. Watch the MISTI designer's videos on YouTube and you'll soon see what I mean!
Thanks for stopping by!
