Its Christmas Time

Well it is time I show some of my Christmas cards for this year. I have not made many just a few for a shop and them some for family and friends. I just find that people will buy Charity cards, which is a good thing, and they can be bought for such a great price, at Christmas. Some of these cards are lovely and cute though I do find that people will commission a card for that someone special in their lives.

I got most (if not all) of my inspiration for this years cards from Path of Paper. Deneen is so creative and I just love her style, simple but elegant. You should hop over and just see what she can do to a sheet of 12"x12"paper. Marvelous in my opinion. (No money changed hand for this endorsement, hehe) in second thoughts wait until you finish reading this. lol

This first set is very simple, I printed out the sentiment from my computer using different fonts on top of an A6 piece of Card Stock (CS), I then embossed the lower part of the CS with some Cuttlebug embossing folders. Than I added a ribbon between the sentiment and the embossing. This was then layered onto coloured pearlscent paper and then onto the main card. I left the inside of these cards blank.

In the second photo the cards are made in the very same way as those above, except, I have printed the sentiment in Irish, which is the official language of Ireland. The sentiment says "Nollaig Shona" meaning "Happy Christmas"
The card on the right is embossed using a Papermania embossing folder.

Since I photographed these cards, I have added some sparkles but I never updated my photo's - naughty me, tut tut.

Hope you like,
