Our Christmas Card Design and a NEW Favorite Tool...
OK - so I know I am really early for Christmas cards -- but since I work full time, keep up with two very busy kids and this was my first year to make my own Christmas cards -- I thought I should get a jump on things.
I knew my daughter would LOVE to help -- and my son could be bribed to do some assembly -- I wanted to do something unique and personal. I saw the i-Top tool from Imaginisce in a magazine and thought how can I use my trusty HP printer to personalize a brad... so off I went to design my own brad. So I just printed our family name on a plain sheet of paper, used a colored circle (looks like an ornament) and my new i-Top punch and tool. Once I had the brad - then I put Diamond Glaze on it -- and it looks like a bottle top... very cool !!! Then of course I HAD to use my Amuse paper, ribbon and stamps (love these too) -- and off I went. Again - our words on the inside are printed on my HP printer. Now just to make 75 of them... I will post photos of the assembly line and the really cute help. Thanks for looking.
