"Rusty" Christmas Cards for 2013 – Snowmen

I have to admit to feeling very rusty as far as making cards is concerned, but I began to feel the old adrenalin flowing as I was making these ….. but I have to admit they are VERY, VERY basic….. I feel my lack of mojo has forced me back to basics and square one in a lot of ways.

I just love the “snowy” card I have used, from Payper Box (fill a plastic wallet), as soon as I saw it I thought snowman and Christmas. The bubble snowmen which contain small seed beads came from The 99p Store last year, which I didn’t use in the end but was determined I would use this year.  I have however seen them again in the pound shops again this year if you fancy some too.  The metal Making Memories eyelet plaques came from the Hobbycrafts Show at the NEC years and years ago cost me 50p a pack, but again have never been used ….. well this year, is their year!
