Christmas in April...why not? We had snow...

Here's my fourth submission card for the Christmas/Holiday category. This one is actually a trifold photo card!

The tree is from one of my favorite stamps ever, Grown with Love, which I thought was still available, but it seems to be MIA from my now I'm thinking retired. Could it be?  The little hearts are stamped in Cranberry ink, then I stitched the little ornament "hangers" with colonial white floss.

The Cricut banner is separated by Bitty Sparkles, and stamped with "A Typeface".  I loaded the branches of the tree and outlined the card front with Stardust Glitter Glitz gel.

Here's the inside of the card, which has enough room to fit lots of photos of the little guys and still handwrite a message to loved ones. Man was this a heavy card - lots of layers! I wouldn't mass produce something like this, but perhaps as a special thing just for the grandparents...

I figured that a holiday card was appropriate as we're supposed to get some snow again. In April. To prepare us for the 70 degree Easter weekend they've predicted. Gotta love living in the Pacific NW - may you always carry 3 light layers just in case!
