Lovely as a Tree-Christmas Favorite!

When creating handmade Christmas cards, Lovely as a Tree is one of my favorite stamp sets.  This card was inspired by one of my club members, Jana, who is doing a similar card for her personal Christmas cards this year.  Maybe when she gets back into town, I can get a photo from her so I can show you both versions of this handmade Christmas card:  a study in browns.

So how can a brown card be Christmassy?  All that glitters IS gold on this handmade card!  And the evergreens in Lovely as a Tree make gorgeous Christmas cards in any color.  All the gold touches and sponging make this card seem very elegant and special.  This handmade Christmas card was one of 6 designs we made at my August Christmas card class.  We made 2 each of 6 desigs for a total of 12 cards…all to the strains of Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole singing timeless Christmas tunes.  Getting into the Christmas spirit!
