2014 Christmas Cards

This week I managed to make and send my Christmas cards.

I CASE'd this card from here. I loved the idea of using the Wondrous Wreath stamp & die set and really liked the idea of using the wreath to hold the card together. In hind sight I should have made the bottom panel higher, as I didn't realise until I went to write in the cards that that would be the space for the writing to go. It made it a little squeeze to try and fit much in there. 
Base is 5 1/4" (scored at 4 1/8")x 5 7/8" 
Bottom panel should be 1 1/2" x 5 7/8" (mine is 1" x 5 7/8")

The 2-Way Glue Pen is great to use when gluing word die cuts as you just write with it like a pen and get the glue exactly where you want it to go.

These cards were a lot of fun to make and I look forward to hearing what my recipients think of them.

Until next time :o)
