Christmas Cards for Friends

Here are a selection of the cards,
that I made this year.
I didn't have an awful lot of time and I
will tell you the reason why in the New Year!
I needed quick, simple designs and as
always, fit the design to the recipient.

I got some excellent "free" stamps with a few
craft magazines and they proved a God send!

Some incorporate Tim Holtz dies
(above & below)

This one above, I made specifically for all the girls
at Queen Bee beauticians because it was an
idea I got from their Christmas window display

and the one below, I mass produced for
all my craft friends.
It is not as simple as it looks.
The background is Brusho with
Heavy Gesso through a Lace Stencil (TCW)
Then snowflakes with light modelling paste
through another stencil
painted with pearl paint

The Kraft card itself, was painted with pearl paint
and so was the die cut word snowflake.

I will share some more later & one of them (for my sister)
gave me the idea for this simple snowflake one.
