I LOVE Betsy's design but tweaked it to make it easier for mass production. Instead of ribbon & bows, I used diecut felt ric-rac and a diecut snowflake. The turtle doves image went on a separate pieces of cardstock, just in case of stamping mistakes :). I added texture by running it through a canvas impression plate, then inked the edges since I was not about to sew (did that last year and won't ever do it again).
I cut Pine's Rustic Snowflake paper into strips that could piece together as unique cards, even with a production line of 55.
Man, do I love seeing them all lined up! It was a labor of love - especially when interrupted with a surprise move on December 3rd. (We had our house on the market but never expected to sell so quickly. Luckily, the timing was right to get us into our perfect home for Christmas!)
This message and the fonts from Inside & Out: Holiday just blew me away. It's exactly what I wanted to say. These cards were a lot of fun to make... and I've already got some cute papers stashed away for next year's creations!
