Well hello there, and happy 4th of July weekend! I finished my July set of Christmas cards last night, and am now up to 54 Christmas cards that I've made in 2011. My goal was to make 5 a month, having 60 minimum to use by December - so I'm a little bit ahead of schedule!
This batch of cards is based on one I made for my DH back in November of 2005. It's been updated a little with a sentiment on the front and white organza ribbon instead of silver cord. I used Craft White ink and embossed with white embossing powder on tree 2 and 4, then used Silver Encore ink and embossed with silver EP on trees 1 and 5. I used Gold Encore ink and embossed using a retired SU! product, Hologram Highlights EP for the center tree. I hope you like them!
It's hot and muggy today - we've got some tropical moisture coming in courtesy of Texas, they say, so we might see a little lightning over the local deserts tonight and tomorrow. Temperatures have been hovering near the triple digit mark for the past couple of days, but the forecast is for a slight cooling trend over the next week. Could be worse, so I can't complain too much - we had a VERY mild spring (here's hoping summer will be mild, too).
Happy 4th of July to all!
