I woke up yesterday morning and realised that I did not have anywhere near enough Christmas cards made (I live under that rock remember, it’s called Bev’s Denial hahaha). So, after doing a quick whip round the house with duster and hoover I was on a mission to get a heap of cards done. I managed 20 in just over 3 hours, making two different styles using only the one paper pad with minimum stamping. Quite pleased with myself, seeing as the mojo has gone in a huff again because I have been paying way too much attention to my Kindle. (edited to add – card blanks were already pre-cut and scored and the flowers were already pulled apart so all I had to do was cut the card and papers, then the die cutting then spray and assemble the flowers. It was all done like a factory assembly line. The things we have to do hey? Not my ideal way of making cards, I hate duplicating cards but needs must).
The paper pad is Basic Grey Aspen Frost, the stamps I used are Whimsy Stamps – I just used sentiments from the Tis the Season Nobables 5. The poinsettia is from Wild Orchid Crafts, I pulled it apart, spritzed it with a watered down mix of Aged Mahogany Distress Stain and put it back together with a spacer and pearl brad. A couple of die cut corners, a bit of ribbon and job done. They are just A6 cards but great for a girl on a mission lol. I will post a pic of the second style (with a bit of stamping and colouring) tomorrow.
