Merry Christmas cards
All of the Christmas cards are done!
I don't have any in-process photos because I was so focused on finishing them that I forgot to take any photos. These started with a ribbon package from Renaissance Ribbons. I don't see this pack available anymore but I bought it for the reindeer. I like to give a deer-themed card to our hunting friends. This is pretty subtle but it's the best I could come up with this year.
The "Merry Christmas" is a silk screen that I made several years ago. It took up a nice hunk of real estate on the card so that I could feature the ribbons. The dotty material is Punchinella that I've had in my stash for YEARS and never used. Punchinella is also called sequin waste. This is what's left over when they make sequins! Around the time that I bought it, Punchinella was the new hot item in the crafting world. Scrapbookers and surface design people loved it. Like many of my supplies it's just another thing that I bought and never used. With this year's cards I set a goal of using some of those "special" supplies and I might have made a teeny tiny dent.
I made 17 of these cards for a total of 78. Now it's time to start addressing all of them!

Fabulous, gorgeous, stunning, beautiful, and on and on. Vickie, these cards are so unique and the people on your Christmas Card List are very lucky indeed.

Thank you for explaining how you got the words on there because I was curious. Punchinella - there's some in my stash too and every once in awhile I haul it out and use it on something. I sometimes use it for stenciling - gives a nice effect and I imagine you could use that technique on fabric too.
