xmas in july :: christmas card

Yet another Powers Christmas card... As you can, see we used a play on words with a "peace" theme. See the puzzle "piece". Enjoy!

We bought several packages of the postcard sized puzzle mailers you can get at Michael's, broke them all apart and covered each piece in red glitter. We then traced and cut the matching shape puzzle piece (there was several different shapes in each package) out of the front cover so the picture would show. Attached the matching puzzle piece with an envelope closure and bakers twine. And finally, we stamped the "peace." on with little alphabet stamps to finish it all off.

As I'm writing this, I'm realizing you could buy a cheap puzzle at a tag sale or goodwill and probably save some money - Darn! Why didn't I think of that!? Since we completely covered the pieces (a time consuming task by the way) it doesn't matter what's on them.

More Christms cards still to come...
