The Christmas cards were a hit with the fam... and being able to share Mom's voice in a recording was the highlight at our family party. These 5 x 5 cards are actually a triple fold with an EZ Sound module with a recording on them. We were able to get Mom to record a Christmas greeting -- we finally got a usable one after 3 tries. We thought it would be a perfect touch to the cards we were sharing with my siblings this holiday season. THEY WERE A HIT! The image is one taken by a friend of ours and I purchased the rights for commercial use. Printed on glossy photo paper and trimmed to 3.50 x 3.50 for the 5 x 5 card version. The foil quill was the perfect tool to use to apply the foil on the vellum. Trim the vellum as desired and using some vellum tape, adhere to the card front. I used Print Shop to create the insert for the inside of the card.

It's been a busy couple of months -- hopefully, as things slow down a bit now that the BIG work projects has been completed there will be more craftiness to come in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
