Hope you had a great weekend - only 3 more until Christmas :)
I managed to get most of my holiday cards done as I have to post so many of them across the Atlantic and like to make sure there's plenty of time for that journey. I almost forgot about the extra postage for non-regular size cards - I like to make 6"x 6" cards but they cost half as much again to send so I decided to go for something a bit different.
I used my Cameo to merge 2 tag shapes at their tops to make a foldover tag card and then stamped and embossed a Christmas tree image with black embossing powder. I then inked over the tree with a hot pink and stamped some background text - forgot to mention that I used a torn piece of paper to cover the bottom of the card to keep it white and look like a snow drift (hopefully!). Finally I added a few gems to the tree and topped the card with some pink bias binding.
Nice and simple and will fit in a regular size envelope! I would like to put this into the challenges at Visible Image , Addicted to stamps , Corrosive challenges , One stitch at a time and Quirky crafts .
Thanks for stopping by!
