Simple Christmas Card

Hello Crafty Friends!

Last December we were expecting a baby so I did not make any Christmas cards. This October our family moved and I still don't have all my craft stuff put away (baby's 1st birthday party took priority) but I  missed being crafty for the holidays and really wanted to make cards this year. I was running out of time but I was able to scrounge up a few supplies from my stash to use and I am happy with the finished product - what do you think?
I also wanted to share with you a little fix I had to use on some of the panels that were no-so-greatly-embossed. Take a look at the photo below and you'll see what I mean...the "joy" is there, but not embossed so well. Quickie Glue Pen to the rescue! I love my Quickie Glue Pens, they are great for gluing small areas (like on diecuts).
The glue goes on blue and dries clear, but the best part is you can put your embossing powder over the glue when it's wet or after it stays sticky after drying until you put something on it. Great for when you need to do a few things at a time.
I let the glue dry clear and added another sprinkling of Fantasy White EP , heated it to melt and viola! all fixed! This EP has a sparkle to it but I didn't get a good photo of it.
We hope that you and your family have a wonderful Christmas! Here's a couple of our favorite holiday photos:
