Hobby Craft Wooden Christmas Card

I have Marc to thank for my renewed enthusiasm for using glitter, until a week or so ago all I possessed was my beloved diamond/fairy dust translucent glitter, used for the odd titivation, anything I may have had in the past had been sent to the local charity shop a while back.  But seeing Marc’s vast array of glitter and playing with it again ….. made me see the possibilities.

The only think I added to all the glitter was a few flat backed pearls for the mistletoe berries to add a little dimension and a different texture.
Hobbycraft Wooden Christmas CardThe only thing I am not too keen on is the “Happy Holidays” sentiment …. it’s a little too “American” for me ….. I would have much preferred a Happy/Merry Christmas.  I admit I didn’t notice it until I got home, had I, I probably wouldn’t have bought them ….. but I daresay nobody else will notice, it’s just a me thing!

Hi Helen. Great cards. I am not a lover of glitter, except at Christmas when I will use it on lots of things. I saw these cards (love the idea)in Hobbycraft but didn't like the holidays word. I suppose you could glue a different greeting over the top though. Take care.

Love the idea of adding the flat back pearls to the card. I really need to get to a hobbycraft soon and pick up a few of these (I have a few different colourways in mind for this design). It's just a shame there isnt a few more designs in this style the other ones they have seem a little too cartoony for my taste.
