On the 3rd Day of Christmas Cards...

I had a hard time with this one. I liked the sentiment on the velum star and liked it with the image stamped of the holy family, but then I knew I need something across the top. I tried ribbon, rafia, twine, paper and didn't like anything. Finally I thought of those cards that remind me of shop window overhangs (or whatever they are called) and thought it might remind me of a stable, so I tried it. I still am not totally satisfied with it and wonder if it would have been better had I not scalloped the edges, but it is okay, better than anything else I tried and I still like the sentiment and image together, along with the colors. Thoughts? Suggestions?

So far this is my favorite, just because I LOVE the stamp of the family, and the sentiment very classic, yet cutesy! I think you did great on the placement, I like the brown across the top. The other cards are nice too, the 1st day (blue & green) has a very crisp, formal holiday look. The 2nd day (white w/ red & green) is just fun... I like the hugs & kisses on it. Very nice!!! I'm impressed with your ability to get so much done, with so much going on! You are amazing! Oh and I love teh FHE box ideas, can you email me the box content info??? lizpresley@yahoo.com THANKS!
