Make a Large Christmas Card

I was so excited when I found the perfect envelopes for our client who prefers to send out big Christmas cards.  What I mean by "big" is that he prefers the cards to be 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" instead of the usual 5-1/2" x 4-1/4".  I came up with this card, which is based on a card that is featured on page 20 of Stampin' Up's 2012 Holiday Catalog.
He was thrilled!

his mother-in-law passed away a few days before I was ready to mail out the cards.  I immediately realized that the Santa scene and the "Happy" tag were not appropriate to send due to the new, terrible, circumstance.  I decided to replace the Santa scene with a trumpeting angel.  I also replaced the "Happy" tag with a tag that says "Cherish."

I love the combination of the Cherry Cobbler paper with the More Mustard yellow.  Throw in the Gumball Green, and you have created a brand new twist on Christmas colors!
