With an 85-Christmas card list, I vow every year to keep it simple. And I try . . . I really, really do. I start out simple, and then it just grows. Still, I think I did better this year than most other years . . .
I smooshed the blue and purple inks onto the shadow stamp, misted twice with water, and then stamped. That was the fast part. Then came the die cuts: the ornament, the glittered bow overlay, and the "Noel". All were tough to get out of the dies in one piece. But I'm happy with the misty colors and the timeless message:
Christ is born . . . Glorify Him!
