A very, very...

...busy week.

Lots of cards made.

The week started with me making a card for my sister's birthday - she isn't overly into papercrafting so I tried to keep it fairly simple but I wanted to play with my Martha Stewart Heart border punch. This I did on the edge of some handmade paper that I used as a wrap.








Wednesday was Dawn's card workshop "Christmas in July". The cards we created were lovely and very enjoyable to make. The first one here was a cute little Angel card in its own box - everything was made as part of the workshop including the box. To help show off the Angel a little more clearly I took a pic with some white paper behind it. The Angel was printed onto acetate and then decorated with glitter and some netting.
This one was an outside-looking-in card and again the box was made to fit the card to make it more of a gift.





I'm going through a phase of making Quad cards at the moment - they look so complicated but are really very easy. I just loved the way we decorated this one.





More printing on acetate and a bit of rubber stamping...Santa & Sleigh are actually stamped on the card behind the printed scene on the acetate.




I have loads of ideas for more Christmas cards but it is getting the chance to sit down and put them into practice. Still, at least I've made a start - how many days to Christmas?................................

Chrissy, some of the bits were fiddly but nothing was terribly difficult. There was a lot of measuring though (probably my least favourite bit LOL)
