Fleece Navidad – a humorous Christmas card idea
So . . . here's my first Christmas card post of the season. Obviously, I'm not an early bird. For this card, I've used the Fleece Navidad digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles. This stamp just cracks me up. I love a funny Christmas card.
The Basic Gray Eskimo Kisses paper comes from a crafting buddy of mine, Fanny Diaz from Scrap de Fanny DG. We were blogging buddies for quite some time and my last visit to Paris in June, we finally met. It's great to have someone to swap supplies with in the same country! I sent her some of my overstock (and you know how we scrappers are – plenty of that!) and she sent me some of hers, this great Christmas paper among it.
I've used the this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #213. This sketch works up very nicely for a lightweight, easy to mail card. I know I've griped about mail prices, but I spend on average €2.00 a card to mail to the States (about $2.13), so I really do have to keep them light, especially when I'm mailing a lot at one time.
