First Christmas Card of 2012

I got the My Favorite Things Inspired by Christmas set rather late in the season and frankly I was so burned out on the whole Christmas card process that I just did not have the heart to make any more by the time it arrived. So I decided to save it for 2012, which is my first Christmas card of the year. I followed this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge (MFTWSC60) for the layout although I did reverse it. The patterned paper is all Echo Park. I kept it as "unlumpy" as possible for mailing purposes.

Products: My Favorite Things stamp and Die-namics, Echo Park dp, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers
Copics: Skin-E000, E01, E11, R20; Beard/Hat trim-W00, E81; Santa Suit-R24, R46, R59; Shadows-BG0000

A Sunday Driveby:

  • not sure what happened to winter here but it doesn't bode well for a pleasant summer

Thank you for stopping by.


  1. Beautiful Christmas card Nancy, love the colors! It will still be awhile before I pull out any Christmas papers...I just got them all put away! ;)
    It will be interesting to see what kind of summer we have this year, our winter was the mildest I can remember and that followed a mild summer.

  2. That card is beautiful... Love the papers and the layout!
