Christmas Card

I know Christmas is long gone now but I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all my customers for the many lovely hand made cards I received this year. They were all so lovely and it means so much more to have 'hand made' ones.
As many of you know I opened up a store on RAF Mildenhall in November 2009 and so I have been keeping super busy getting it up and running. I have been made to feel so welcome and am getting to know and entirely new group of crafters.
I wanted to share one of the cards I received from a lady who claims NOT to be very good at card making would you believe! I found her card stunning and I was so thrilled that she felt she wanted to share it - and photos of her lovely family with me.

It is actually an album card made from a paper sack - the kind used to take a packed lunch in. I just love the red, black and white colour scheme.

The card opens up to reveal pockets that hold individual photos of her family members. I like that she's used a Martha Stewart border punch to decorate the edges of her pockets. It's also nice to see stamping 'white' on black.

This is the tag from the front and just behind is the insert where she wrote her Christmas message. The jingle bells are a lovely touch and the whole thing looks amazing!

I am inspired!
