A Very Merry Christmas

Well Christmas is practically here!  We have just two more days to get everything done.  For me its just one more day since I do an Open House for Christmas.  And although I really don'e feel like I am ready, I know that everything will get done.  I need to remember to try to keep things simple.  In the spirit of that idea, I am sharing with you a simply, yet elegant Christmas Card:

I will be totally honest, this card came to me after realizing I was running low on Whisper White and Crumb Cake envelopes, so I knew I need to make something from Very Vanilla.  I grabbed my favorite color, Mint Macaron and decided to accent it with some Copper Foil.  I love the Santa's Sleigh bundle, and am so glad I bought it.  I believe it is being carried over so I hope it makes an appearance in next year's Annual Catalog!  Between the layered trees and the cute copper deer, I love how this card came together.  I finished it off with some of the Striped Mint Macaron ribbon.  And of course I had to stamp the envelope as well!  

This was one of the many Christmas Cards I sent out.  I ended up sending over 70.  Unfortunately I had only 60 family picture printed.  For those who didn't ge a family picture, here is a look at it:

We decided to go with a fun family selfie (us-ie) that was taken this past summer at a local carnival.  It is one of my husbands favorite pictures of us as family!  

For more Christmas cards, head over to SSI where we are all sharing some of our favorite cards!
