Flat cards for Christmas

Hello lovely bloggers,

My heart goes out to all those affected by Hurricane Sandy... and there is a hurricane in the South Eastern coast of India as well. Mother Nature needs certainly needs to calm down and be kind to her children on earth.

Here is a Christmas card I made for a friend who wanted flat cards. Now I have to own up that I find it rather boring to make such kind of cards even though they are envelope friendly. I had this divine looking tissue paper with silver poinsettias which I carefully stuck on cardstock,  ran it through my Cuttlebug and put silver ribbon on the top. Added silver glitter glue on the edges of the Spellbinders diecut and stamped a Merry Christmas sentiment (kind courtesy dear Lynn). I went over the sentiment with a silver Sakura gel pen.

And guess what? My friend loved this card and bought it at first instance. So I kind of feel good that she liked what I created for her.

I am going to enter this card for the following challenges: - festive - Christmas - anything goes

I could not visit you for the past two days - just been a bit caught up. But will catch up for sure.

Thank God it's Friday!

Of course she loved it! The embossing 'almost' makes it look layered so it's perfect for mailing!!!
