Playing around w/ Christmas ideas!

i was challenging myself to come up w/ something 'different' for Christmas and this is what i came up with today!
Start w/ normal size card 5 1/2" X 8 1/2"
Score one end @ 1 3/4" and flip and score the other end @ 3 1/8"
Picture inside is 3 1/4" X 4 1/2" and matted that on a piece just slightly larger 3 1/2" X 4 3/4"
I like to add a tab to the pix and just 'tack' it in there so they can pull it out and display w/ the other xmas pix!
On the outside i just wrapped a basic black belly band around it and tied basic gray ribbon around that! So to open the card they slide that off.

paper: crushed curry, basic black, old olive
ink: old olive, basic black
tools: crop a dile(to punch holes for brad), stamp a ma jig(for stamping the ornaments on front and making sure your words are straight on the inside), 2 way glue pen
accessories: basic gray ribbon, dazzling diamonds(on ornaments to make the sparkle!)

Happy Stamping! Melissa
