Design Project | Fun Christmas Card

You may recall that I did portraits for this couple a couple of months ago. At the end of the photo session, they broke out their “ugly Christmas sweaters” and an antique sled for some fun Christmas card photos. Unfortunately (or fortunately, since it was October) there was no snow on the ground. After a bit of work in Photoshop, this is the card I developed for them. I love their fun-loving spirits and creativity!

Day 62: Make-n-take

Thanks to a couple of my crafty coworkers, we’ve started doing a monthly ‘make-n-take’ craft project over lunch. Yesterday we made four cute birthday cards. We even got to try an embossing technique where you stamp clear ink on the card, sprinkle some black powder over the ink, and dry it with a special dryer. I’m sure I didn’t use the correct terminology, but I’m not up on my scrapbooking jargon.
