christmas starts here...sadly

hi world ,
well its no good, Christmas has to done !
and as i have to make about 150 cards . . . for kids , hubby etc, i have to make a  start sometime. so now is the time.
actually i did make some in January, but not many.
so here are the first ones of  this season.
i am trying to use up a lot of stuff that i have had for a while.
the background is stamped through sequin waste. the ribbons are woven together and then the topper greeting on foam layered on top. the topper is cut from some old Christmas cards and stamped ontop. quite pretty! i made a few of these.

i think this card is cute, the stamp is from butterfly kisses. it is stuck onto acetate and the reverse of the stamp is stuck on the back of the acetate, he is holding mistletoe behind his back. Rudolf is coloured with aqua pro markers. i just love his expression, there is a reason he has a red nose (too much red wine. . .  is there such a thing!) 
happy crafting

  1. Jill would be very proud of you using all those ribbons!! They look great, I haven't managed to get the knack of stamping through sequin waste yet.
