I tried to avoid the glare but I think this Martha Stewart cardstock ( from my stash) has a slight sheen. Anyway I wanted to do a quick post to show the kind of card I am including with my Christmas gifts to out-of-state friends. (Had to keep it simple because time is running out.) I spent quite awhile searching through my Xmas papers to find a print that looked both Christmasy and Hawaiian to match the Dandelion Design people. The 'Happy Holidays' oval is a little squished at the top but I didn't want it to interfere with the opening of the card.
Once the card is opened, the mini Vippies calendar is revealed. There is room inside the card for a message. Pictured below is the DD stamp set which includes several other stamps that I did not use on this project. By keeping the holiday greeting on the top-half of the card front, it doesn't show when the card is set up so the card doesn't seem out of season during the rest of the calendar year. Oh, I forgot to mention that the die used to cut the base of the card is a Sizzix product (which I showed in a previous project). The Sizzix die and DD stamp set were purchased at the best craft store in Hawaii, House Mart Ben Franklin Crafts. Okay, that's it for today....gotta go make more card calendars. Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your interest in my blog.
