Cards for the Neighbours !!

Hi Everybody,

I had a little play the other day when it was cold wet and windy and these cards are what I came up with

I made six Christmas cards all the same and used my Brusho Crystal Colours to get the background

The  Sleigh and Reindeer stamp was free with Simply Cards and Papercrafts and everything else was in my "Stash" already.

They all have ribbon and Bakers Twine on them and I have added in two gold bells to each bow.

I think they turned out quite pretty and the neighbours don't visit my blog so they won't see them until they get them !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  15. Hi Christina the cards are really pretty and I am sure your neighbours will love them. I have just revisited your tutorial from July 28th, it's the one about using the scraps we normally throw away and I found it really interesting. I have had some of that double sided sticky paper for a long time and wondered what to do with it, well now I know and can't wait to have a go. Thanks for the inspiration. xx

    What lovely cards you've made with the freebies. Must remember to look around Christmas time to see what stamps are on these books.

  18. Morning, Christina,
    These are terrific! I need to move up to Blackpool and become one of your neighbours, they are going to love these :). I'd already done my neighbour cards before my Brusho powders arrived, so they are getting a die cut Rudolph with a red crystal nose this year lol. I'm still trying to sort out my craft room so not too much being created in there apart from a right mess just now lol. I really need to get my act together and try to find my work top and get something done.

  32. Hi Christina
    They look great and I'm sure your Neighbours will be thrilled to receive them.
    I have a question and was wondering when you do your mixed media what type of paper do you use?
    I have just bought the beautiful Spellbinders die The Regal Victorian and its beautiful In the process of making a card with it but thought it would be lovely if you could design a card with it and use it as one of your tutorials.
