My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Christmas Fence

Hi Everyone,

Today's card was made in opposition of a birthday card I made a while back. A friend asked me to make a birthday card for his 82 year old aunt, and I proceeded with a bunch of layers, flowers, ribbon and gems. It was lovely, and he was pleased, but I quickly said, "If you're going to send it through the mail, you need a padded envelope and more than one stamp!"

So, since that's not realistic when sending 50 holiday cards, here is a simple, flat card that fits the one stamp criteria :) I stamped and die cut the Family and Friends Greeting, from DRS Designs, adding a bit of sponged ink and layered it on some sticker paper that was die cut and coated in a multi colored glitter named Victorian Christmas. 
After I stamped and colored the Christmas Fence on on my background, I punched my corners and added a red layer before adhering everything to my card base.

Have you started on your Christmas cards yet? No time like the present! You can see what's new at DRS Designs by clicking right here!

Thanks for the nudge to get started on Christmas cards Karin! This is so pretty. Love the idea of the little Christmas fence as the focal point with the sentiment. TFS
