My Gnome-made Christmas Card

I wanted to take a moment to wish all of our blog readers a Merry Christmas from me and my family!


I created our Christmas card this year with the Gnome for the Holidays Hybrid Photo Card set. This set features a few different pre-made digital cards; all I had to do was pick a photo (or photos) and drop them into my chosen design. I still like to write in my cards, so I printed these out onto 4x6" photo paper, and adhered them to a 4-1/2 x 6" card base to make a more traditional-style card for mailing.

Of course, I had to be the proud momma and chose pictures of my three children: Hunter, who is 16 and a Junior in High School, Emma Rose, who is 14 and an 8th grader, and Max, who is 12 and a 7th grader this year.

Wishing you many blessings to you and yours in the new year!

Creatively yours,
Karen
