A Family New Year's Card

Here's a little Card with Kitchen Sink Stamps. Something simple and pretty...

To be quite honest, you would not be able to mail these in the lined envelope I created; with the ribbon and all... but just in case you are among the .25% of people that have their New Years Cards hand delivered by courier... here is the fancy envelope.

The Envelopes are from Paper Source... they are lovely... 4 1/8" x 9 1/2" and made of a shimmery paper. Referred to on the PS website as a #10 Open End Envelope in Stardream Quartz. They would make wonderful wedding card envelopes... or envelopes for hand delivered cards. Of course you could mail them... without the ribbon.

I wish I could tell you who made this paper... to be honest I have no idea. But it's a sky blue and charcoal tone. The card base is Sky Blue. The ink is Adirondack Black. The ribbon is by Basic Grey. The stamp sets are Playful Numbers and Never a Loss for Words. Don't you live the "blah, blah blah" sentiment on top? I think at a glance it just looks like a pretty scroll pattern.

I also want to add that the photograph is in black and white, not blue and white. In person it looks great... I guess it's just one of those things that doesn't photograph well.
