A Quickie Tip and My Christmas Card

I am behind with sending out my Christmas cards this year, so I thought I would post this cool idea so those of you who have to send some still can use it, or if you are not a mega procrastinator like me, you can remember it and save it to use next year.

TIP of the YEAR: Use your aquapainter to "lick" envelopes when stuffing cards for any occasion. It makes you not have to taste it and it works AWESOME!!!!

So, there you have it! Here is a of what I am sending out today -- a few days late, but better late than never . . . *grins* You can see the Lily Kate Card I made here.

This card has handsome hunter stamped with canvas layered on a white background. Then I stamped and embossed the holly from SU "Happiest of Holidays" and then layered that on white after cutting it out. Then I punched three holes and set three eyelets (all using my silent setter from provocraft and done while my kids and hubby were sleeping -- that thing is a Christmas miracle if I have ever seen one. You can buy it here.) I used real red on some and these ones were baroque burgandy. I was really happy with the simplicity of this card, but how pretty it looks in real life. I think the gold cord helped spiff it up!
