This is my daughters Christmas card for this year. They usually come on Thanksgiving and on the Friday after turkey day we pull out all the christmas stamps and she decides what her Christmas cards will be. When she saw this set Holy Night form Amuse it was a very quick decision for her, we were able to make 25 in about 2 1/2 hours and she was very pleased with the results. We used white cs, French Roast ink, French Roast brown cs and w bit of white ribbon for accent. She made an "opportunity for embellishment" so we added 2 tiny brown pearls to offset the "oops". After using the ribbon on the first one she decided to use the bakers twine in place of the ribbon to save on "bulk" postage, the twine will go through the postage much easier than the ribbon. The twine worked equally as well. Mom had to tie all the twine as she cut the tip of her index finger off about a year ago at a well known chain restaurant (on the chair) and has no feeling now in the end of her finger, so Mom was happy to tie all the twine/ribbon.
