This has been the best idea ever for encouraging me to get on and make my Christmas cards this year. In fact it has worked so well that I think I will end up with a few spare cards..... maybe a start for next year.
As part of the Red Ribbons Cyber Crop a few weekends ago we were asked to create a piece of mail art and send it to someone, I decided to try and make mine Christmassy themed... this was the front of the envelope ...
all very arty for me! Thought I would try something new totally inspired by someone called Lynda who I met on a recent crop. She was using a similar technique (bubblewrap printing then lines with a credit card) I added stamped stars and a Christmas greeting with snowflakes punched from a vintage book and lightly painted white, a quick misting and I was done. This then lead to the creation of a set of co-ordinating Christmas cards...
and another set of 6 cards had been made!
The last 2 sets I created were from ideas I had seen on pinterest here
and adapted to make 2 sets of cards
As you can see I used the negative and the positive snowflake shape and tried several ideas with both...... these are my favourite cards of the 5 sets I made this year.
Thank you Sarah, Louise, Jennifer and Lisa Jane for all your Christmas card inspiration over at SJ Crafts
and I am keeping my fingers crossed you do this again next year!
