Yep.. this is the first Christmas card of 2010. I figured I might as well get a head start since I haven't been producing as many cards as I used to. I really loved Kristina Werner's MACM back in June (http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/?p=3407) so I decided to change it up and turn it into a Christmas card.
Unfortunately I had gone through my last sheet of red cardstock while practicing this card. (I tend to have a hard time going from sketch to the real thing so I have to play around with it in real life before I get it just right) I ended up having a 8.5"x3" strip left so I had to make due. It actually worked out in my favor. I found that the card worked better on a smaller area. Sweet!
If you haven't seen A Christmas Story (my favorite Christmas movie of all time!), you probably won't get it. It's from one the scene where the family's Christmas dinner is ruined cuz of the neighbor's dogs, so they have to go to a Chinese restaurant. The waiters try singing Deck the Halls but totally mispronounce the words. "Fa-la-la-la-la not Fa-rah-rah-rah-rah".. I'm sure I'm not spoiling the movie for anyone so don't get mad at me!
