Today I am sharing a card that I made for my post at the weekend for It's a Creative World. Last year I made some Christmas kits up that didn't get used. It therefore made perfect sense as they're cut out and ready to go, to use them before embarking on another style of card.
I tend to do Christmas cards in batches that way it doesn't become a chore!
This card isn't made as I had originally planned in kit form....of course, I've changed style just a tad over the last 12 months so it has been tweaked.
For this project I have used Spellbinder Heirloom die 2012 together with embossing folders Pine branch by Tim Holtz and Dot swirl by Hero Arts. I have added clear rock candy to my branch....it wouldn't be Christmas without a little sparkle. Sentiment stamp is by Paula Pascual's Large Christmas.
I'm much preferring clean and simple lines just now especially when we have so many Christmas cards to rattle through.
But first today I have a couple of bespoke orders to do and a class to sort for tomorrow. Then time permitting I might get some more Christmas cards made up.
Did you all have a good weekend?
I had a good day at work on Saturday, getting busier now as the run up to Christmas is in full flow. Saturday night spent chilling watching Strictly and I'm a Celebrity, a lovely M and S meal and drink.
Yesterday I got up to date on my ironing and made some Christmas decorations as well as all the usual Sunday activities.
This week my intention is to get ahead of the game for Christmas with my cards, presents and baking. Mind you my kitchen is in the early stages of being decorated so that might need to take priority.
Have a good week folks, back tomorrow. x
