A normal Christmas card

Hi everyone!  Just a friendly reminder to finish up your package of cards for this month's OWH challenge (half fall or winter/half anytime).  Cards are due to shippers at the end of the month, so you have just about a week before you have to mail your cards.  I don't think I'll have enough to make it worth my while this time, but I'm consistently working so that I'll have a nice box to send by mid-August.  

The last Christmas cards I posted were (by my description) weird!  Here's one that follows a traditional color palette.


Funny story:  I was in the middle of making this card when I noticed I had a FB message from a friend I hadn't conversed with in about a year.  I responded and then looked back at my card.  I about fell over when I noticed the card I had nearly finished is almost an exact replica of a dress my friend made and wore to our college's ball.  I dug through my photos and found a picture of my friend wearing her dress.  It's like photo inspiration in reverse!  How unlikely!  

Embossing Folder: Lace by Darice
Paper: cardstock from stash
Ribbon: Offray (thanks to Mommom's stash)
Stamp: Michael's
Punch: I don't have a ticket punch, so I use a 1/2" circle punch on the corners
