I have a Beautiful Christmas Card for you today. This looks so pretty and elegant in person, I’m hoping the video will show you just how gorgeous this card is. I did this same layout for my Coffee and a Card this week and the ladies liked it so much I thought why not turn it into a Christmas card. I do not have a name for this type of card I just call it a Double Front.
I used every stamp in the stamp set and it is the new The Sounding Joy #121967 $24.95 wood or #121979 $18.95 clear. This is a wonderful stamp set I think a must have to your Christmas stamp collection.
In the video I had a couple of bloopers but I left them in; might as well see I’m not perfect and have troubles just like you. In the end the card still came out beautifully. I also have included all the dimensions below the video as I had a lot of them and you might not hear them all in the video.
