Here are a few of my Christmas cards from last year ……….I’m not 100% about this angel! She looks like she’s got jam all over her face!
Everso simple….. topper made using wavy layers of white glitter card, Christmas tree brads and tiny silver stars on a on a long thin blue card blank.
I make all my own card blanks using my trusty Coppernob scoring board and always put a blank insert inside them.
Think these are “Dress Up” buttons from a huge bag I got from US EBay. The snow flakes are table confetti, sorry I can’t remember the name of the paper.
This pathetic little snowman is actually a china cake decoration I got from Penkridge Market (Staffs), think they were 30p each.
This is one of my favourite cards ever! The bulbs are from Crafts for Christmas. I threaded them one at a time onto crafting wire, winding the wire round a cotton bud about four times before adding the next bulb, then tucked the surplus wire behind the base card and finally mat and layered onto silver mirror card.This card is a reject, as the tree is ever so slightly squiffy.
This snowman card was a lot of fiddle fart…. with a lot of mat and layering and faux stitching. The snowman and star were from a big double pack of 3D stickers from Poundland. When I saw them I filled my basket, because if you don’t buy them when you see them, you never see them again!
My son works in Forensics and likes to give his friends a forensic themed card each year!
The H’s were cut out on my Cuttlebug (now traded in for a Big Shot), the fingerprints were taken from Google and glittered with translucent micro glitter …… and would you believe it someone in his office identified that the fingerprints were actually upside down!
Finally this is the picture I put on my cards, for my kids, as we are all quite Monkey mad! (If you haven’t already, have a look at my other blog by clicking on the monkey picture at the top of this page , it’s quite, quite mad!
Well that’s some of my cards from Christmas past!
Now all I have to do is make cards for Christmas present!
