Where has the time gone???? I was meant to post again on Thursday … and then I caught that cardmaking virus which makes you forget about everybody and everything 🙂 lol. I had to prepare for today’s Make & Take Class … 8!!! Christmas cards I promised everybody we’d do in 3 hours, it meant a lot of prep work on my part … I think in future I’ll be more careful about what I promise.
Well one of these cards is one we made today:
Well it is the one on the right, the tree decorated with sequins. The one on the left is the card I want to enter into this week’s ‘Music’ challenge at ‘Out of a Hat Creations'(http://outofahatcreations.blogspot.co.uk) as it has the musical score of ‘Silent Night’ as a background. Singing Christmas Carols on Christmas Eve was a big part of family tradition when I grew up.
The trees are made from a sort of left over from making the following boxes:
The boxes were made using the Crafter’s Companion Ultimate Pro after watching their Christmas DVD. I really liked the look of them. Their pyramid shape looks like a simplified Christmas Tree. The shape I used for the Christmas Trees on the cards is the bit from the windows I cut out and covered with acetate.
Hope you like them:
What I used: Crafter’s Companion Ultimate Pro Christmas Embossing Board, Darice embossing folder (snowflakes) both from www.crafterscompanion.co.uk, Sizzix Ornament Framelits, jewellery tag punch, tiny tags stamp set and Baker’s Twine from Stampin’UP!; red ribbons from Fantastic Ribbons; Penguin stamp came with the Creative Stamping Magazine; seam binding ribbon from The Ribbon Girl; Budding Vine embossing Folder, Marianne border die, Nestability Die, Promarkers, jewels, sequins, glitter glue, acetate, patterned paper, peel-offs, Zutter corner rounder and card from my own stash.
