Christmas Card & Recipe 2010

Christmas Card & Recipe 2010

This year, I thought it would be fun to make my 4x6 photo card have a dual purpose, so I included our favorite new recipe. Even though you think of pumpkin recipes as fall/Thanksgiving fare, we love this latte so much, it's stickin' around all year. Thanks to Becca for the original by-the-cup recipe. We have adapted it to make it in bulk (to last a week), plus we have used the pumpkin mixture with Tazo Chai Tea, as well as mixing it only with extra milk for a third variation. My brother said, "It's like drinking pumpkin bread!"

Everything in this LO is from Brandy Murry's Jingleberry Collection. Thanks, Brandy, for such a beautiful batch of goodies. I love the icy blue and cranberry combo.

The blue letters are Bernard MT Condensed with a PSE default style added (Simple Noisy), and I played around with the Style Settings (Bevel, mostly). I figured out how to adjust drop shadow colors in this little LO--what a fun breakthrough!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

    I love the idea! I'm using it next year! I love how you used the collection and included the photos.
    I really love the layout. It makes a lovely recipe card.
    I'm trying this one! YUM!
    This is awesome! Great idea that I may just steal next year too! Love, love, love the card. Great job!
    That is the coolest card..I would love if everyone sent me one of those. Yours is exceptional!
    I love this! Such a fantastic idea for a holiday card! I would definitely keep this one in my recipe binder (course, the recipe is memorized in this house... LOL!)

    Thanks for sharing, Cindy!
    This is beautiful Cindy & thanks for sharing such a great idea :)
