Christmas Blessings (Lynn Mangan, Guest Designer)

Here is yet another card in our monthly holiday card series, posted on the 25th of each month...

Christmas Blessings
by Lynn Mangan

We mail out a lot of Christmas cards and whenever I can come up with a relatively flat card to mail out I am super pleased!  I made this card several weeks ago and decided it was time to make about ten of them to jump start my Christmas card stash.  To give the card a little extra finish, I matted a gray piece of card stock with a thin border of black card stock.  I love the way the square card base and gray/black mimicked the square outline on the fabulous intricate die cut.  To finish off the card I added a simple sentiment and one little gem to highlight the holly in the die cut.  So nice to finally be getting a dent in the Christmas cards...December is right around the corner!

    Your card is really beautiful. I love square cards even though I'm usually charged more to mail them. Your clean style appeals to me, too. I cannot get into the holiday spirit just yet, but I am taking notice of ideas for when I do begin my cards and tags. TFS your beautiful card. Jan D., FL
