2014 Christmas Card for In-Laws

by Donna Okoniewski
(Gaylord, MI USA)



First of all, I'd like to thank Christina and everyone who made such lovely comments on my white on white 96 year Birthday Card. I'll be sending that to Auntie in the next few days. By your response, I'm thinking she's going to love it! Thank you all again for your kind words and encouragement.

This Christmas card is for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law. It is a 5x7 hinged card with a cream card stock base.

The inside is lined, with the edges embossed using my small Martha Stewart scoring board and the gold accent in the corners are from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Lace Hearts.

The front of the card I used all Spellbinders dies - 2010 Heirloom Ornament; Fancy Lattice; Fantastic Flourish One; and Layered Poinsettia. The ribbon and two gold buttons were in my "stash'.

The bling I purchased at Hobby Lobby by K&C Company. That Bling, by the way, is very flimsy and difficult to use.

The gold mirror card is from Hobby Lobby in their Art Dept. The package says poster board.

The colored glitter card stock and the cream card stock were from Hobby Lobby. The brand was Paper Studio. And, I used foam tape between the layers.

While I enjoyed very much making this card, I had spent all afternoon on it. Every time I thought it was done, I'd go back and look at it again and add something else or I thought Oh why didn't I emboss that before I put the lattice work on. But, in the end, I thought it turned out well and I hope you enjoy it too.

Christina says ...

Well I think the cards is lovely and they will be really pleased with it when you present it to them for Christmas.

I am sure that it will take pride of place on the mantle and will be treasured for a long time.

I love the traditional Christmas colors and you must be really proud of your design

Good morning Donna

Your card is very appealing and it does not look as if you should have had any after thoughts about what if i should have done this or that. Colours are right for the season.
