How are those homemade Christmas cards coming along?
I used to make all of mine, til time and sanity kicked in lol. These days I still make a few but not the 30 or so I used to make! Just a few special ones. I did get a bit of stick for sending out bought ones ;) but hey, in my defence there are some gorgeous cards out there to buy!!
Today I have a couple of cards to show you using BoBunny's Christmas Collage. I love that it has a distinctive heritage feel to it, but also a bit of a modern twist to it too.
The idea for the first card I found trawling through Pinterest for some ideas, I was wanting to do something a bit different. Course it makes posting………… interesting!
To create the cluster in my fold Ive just layered some of the new petals with BoBunny blossoms and tucked in some Noteworthy pieces, a little chipboard banner and fussy cut some ivy from a tag. it need something to finish it off so I added some lace, muslin, string and a button and then splattered some gold glimmer spray, and my fav stitches stamp.
Heres a of closeups so you can see what I mean.
The second is simpler and much more postage friendly ;) and Ive used some Leaky Shed chipboard. All I did to alter it was painted it with gesso, randomly stamped and then inked with pinecone. Really easy but effective!
The poinsettias are Spellbinders and the leaves are part of the Tim Holtz Pinecone die. Heres some more close ups for you :)
Thanks for popping by!
