Merry Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone!

The thought run through my head today that I don’t make enough cards, and it is true.. I had a look back through my blog and it is sparse in the card department, so I intend to get back to my roots and make more of them…. starting today!

I got stuck into making Christmas cards, and I made a trio (all the same)

I want to make more in the coming weeks, then decide which one I like the best,  so I will hang off mass producing them until I choose my favourite 🙂


I did record a youtube video of this card being made too, which I will upload shortly


I used 3 x lovely distress inks for this card… Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood and Broken China


The leaf die and the sentiment stamp are from Clearly Besotted Stamps, I also used some bazzill textured cardstock in a lovely blue colour as a mat between my layers

I hope you enjoyed today’s card, and I hope to be back with more cards very soon

Thanks for popping round
