Christmas Cards

I’m still here – just. The last few weeks have been crazy bonkers. I suppose it’s that time of year. I have never know so many school Christmas activities that needed so much parental input. Different activities for each child on different days, various birthdays including mine and the usual round of paediatrician appointments. The last few weeks are a bit of a blur!

I have made the last few Christmas cards I need. I thought I’d share the last 4 in one post so I can hopefully move on to other crafty makes.

This one uses some old Woodware stamps. I stamped the carol singers on two different pieces of card, coloured them in with polychromos and cut around them carefully with a wavy, snowy edge. I partially die cut a circle and layered it all up. The snowy background is distress in and white ink through a stencil.

This card is very basic but I love the look of it. I used Tim Holtz tissue tape and Martha Stewart twig punch. The greeting is a Trimcraft stamp from the set ‘The Night Before Christmas’.

This card uses the same tissue tape and Martha Stewart twig punch as the card above. I love the fact that I’ve made two different cards from the same products.

This card uses my Tim Holtz blueprints stamp and I’ve paper pieced over with different colour card. The card on the tree is raised up on 3d foam for a little dimension.

I have one more card to show but I will save that for another day. I’m writing this at my Mum’s house as she has taken my kids out for a few minutes but now her kitten is fighting for my attention!
