Quite a few crafters have been busy making Christmas cards. Here are a few I have spotted in the craft room.
This first card is by Michelle Hobbs and uses a cute penguin from one of her Woodware clear stamp sets. The beautiful border is made with a Spellbinders holly flourish border die.
Michelle has also been using the metallic flitter and created this stunning card. Love the stamped verse Michelle has added which is a Molly Blooms sentiment stamp:
Janice Kempster has used the Woodware sketch for her lovely creation. The background has been stamped and embossed with snowflakes.
ingredients: Woodware clear stamp set of Christmas elves, Martha Steward snowflake punch, plus Spellbinders fancy oval dies.
Denise Hutchings has made her very first large 8×8 Christmas card – those larger cards take some filling!
ingredients: Stampendous cling stamp of little bird, Craftwork cards shaped 8×8 card blank, Cheery Lynn Merry Christmas die.
This is another card lovely by Denise and also features a robin.
ingredients: Robin Redbreast clear stamp by Little Claire.
Julie Staves has had a productive weeks holiday. Here are a few more cards that Julie has created.
ingredients: Woodware clear stamp with robins, Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish die.
Julie has made another poinsettia card using the Spellbinders Poinsettia die set. This time with a sparkly paper and die cut fancy circle behind a pink poinsettia.
Julie has also made two Christmas pudding cards. The Woodware clear stamp set comes with lots of different little stamps plus borders. Julie has used the holly and button to create a pretty background and added a clear stardust pen for added sparkle.
Another of Julie’s cards that feature the Woodware robins, this time in a little row. The pretty corners have been punched with a Martha Steward snowflake corner punch.
Finally Julie has paper pieced this new Woodware patch and Angel image. The papers are from Wild Rose studio. I like the way that Julie has positioned the angel so it looks as if she is flying!
Michelle, Janice, Denise and Julie have kept all their cards quite flat to minimise postage costs. Definitely something to consider this Christmas when making cards!
Thanks ladies for letting me take photos.
