So, I finally got round to starting my Christmas cards yesterday. I didn't think inspiration would strike as I couldn't feel less like Christmas if I tried! Anyway, once as I had spread out my papers and embellishments things started to happen.
I am using last year's papers from Craftwork Cards called Trim the Tree which I bought in the sale. I have two colourways - the first is the pink and black that I have used below, and the other is purple and lime green which I will use when I have exhausted the possibilities of the pink/black.
I'm using different sized cards this year. I usually use a 12cm square or a 15cm square. This year I have decided to use a 10cm square and the standard A6 sizes.
I have gone for simple styles, I don't like anything too fussy. I love the modern, contemporary feel of these papers - I have never been very keen on the traditional style with red, green and gold, or the really cute images either.
Altogether I managed to make 17 cards - not a bad afternoon's work. I made 2 of each design where possible. Some designs have not been scanned yet, waiting for the glitter glue to dry. So more to show you another day. I have to make around 70 cards, so still a way to go. That will keep me quiet over the next couple of days!
Have a great Sunday.
