Photo Cards for the Holidays

By With 1 Comment

Photo-cardThis was my most recent 12 weeks of Christmas sample – but I couldn't resist sharing it here.

Many people choose the holidays as a time to send out family photos – here's a way to combine a photo with a handmade card (they're not mutually exclusive!).  I used the Big Shot Top Note Bigz die to cut the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper.  I saved the middle portion to use on other projects (alternatively, you could use it on the inside portion of the card!).  I used the leftover piece as a frame, and highlighted it with the words Peace and Joy from the Join the Cheer Big Shot Die.  My paper snips came in handy to separate out the words I wanted.  (the words on the die are Peace, Joy, Love, Cheer).

This design is not exclusively for the holidays – it could be used to send a photo greeting at any time of year!  Change out the designer series paper, or use cardstock and stamps, snip out different words from the strip – imagine the possibilities! 

There's still time to be included in the Twelve Weeks of Christmas – sign up for my email newsletter to see what week six holds!
