Season of Joy

I love making Christmas cards! Well, for that matter, I love Christmas and everything about it. Am I the only one that listens to Christmas music while making my Christmas cards? I don't care if it's 105 outside, I'll be singing along with let it snow lol. I really need to get a move on! I make all my Christmas cards different, so it takes me forever!

Anyway, I was looking at the new catalog the other day, and noticed the card on page 52 where the bottom edge is folded up and torn. I LOVE that look, so or course I ran right to the stamp room. I cut my cardstock to 4.25 X 9, then scored at 4.25 and 8.5. I would recommend stamping on that little edge before you fold it up though. My first two attempts were very smeared! Then I just tore it and folded it up. I used mini glue dots to keep in in place, while still giving it a little bit of dimension. I'm gonna be so sad when I run of this gorgeous DSP cry.

Love this card! It would be easy to make it non-Christmasy too. (Is that even a word??) I LOVED that paper. The new holiday paper just isn't quite as good, IMHO.
