Every now and then, I find a product or stamp that is perfect for someone I know in real life. When I found wood veneer paper at Michael's, I knew instantly that it was perfect for my aunt Linda, who has amazing woodworking skillz.

It's kind of a cool story, so let me share. My grandfather was seriously handy, and he had an extensive workshop in a detatched garage behind his house. After he died, my aunt would sit in his workshop because she felt so close to him there. Finally, one day, she asked my grandmother if she could have his woodworking tools. Of course my grandmother said yes, so Linda moved all the tools into her basement and took a bunch of classes at the community college.
She now makes museum-quality furniture.
My boys have the very best rocking horse in the world.
Anyway, this is my aunt's Christmas card, which uses two shades of the wood paper and an awesome Christmas tree punch. The trees are so big I had to use a larger card base...5"x7".
Do you ever make custom Christmas cards for people? If so, what product or stamp makes you think of them?
