Our Family Christmas Card

Hello friends.  I wanted to share with y'all a very different Christmas card.  I wanted something different for our family this year.  Something that represents our family in a different light.  I tried to come up with something that would reflect all three of our personalities.  What did I come up you ask?

Yep, that's right..a card reminiscent of Duck Dynasty.  All three of us absolutely love that show. Si is Kierstynne's favorite.  I like Jase and Willy and Tim likes Phil.  Of course, we all love Miss Kay. 

I have to admit that I didn't come up with the tree idea.  I watched a video on YouTube by Kristina Werner showing how she made fingerprint trees.  I just took it a step farther and made it a camouflage tree and cut it out with pinking shears instead of doing it on a white card base.  Kierstynne helped me with the inking.  It took quite a while to get them all done.  For the background, I ran pieces of brown Recollection card stock through my Cuttlebug using a Darice Wood Grained EF.  I cut down some camouflage paper and added to the left side.  I used pop dots on the tree and start.  The sentiment is printed out from my Word Processing program.  I didnt' want to add too many embellishments to it because even though us rednecks like bling, the Duck Dynasty crew is kinda plain.

I hope y'all get a kick out of this card as do the recipients of our card this Christmas.  Have a wonderful day and God bless!


  1. I adore this card and I love Duck Dynasty! Michael's Arts and Crafts carries Duck Dynasty figurines and bobble heads :)

  2. How cute and creative, Em! LOVE the fingerprint camo! Captures the spirit of Duck Dynasty, for sure! xxD

  3. I am not a Duck Dynasty fan - however love the way you made that tree with the zig-zag edges. Very clever and creative!!! May have to copy that idea.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog. I truly appreciate it. God bless you.
