Christmas Cards

This blog entry is a bit late but I didn’t want to show these until they’d been delivered. I didn’t make many handmade Christmas cards this year, just those for immediate family & a few of them are shown below – the rest are in my Picasa gallery.

VERY easy card – freehand cut the hill, edged it with Stickles & mounted using foam pads .  The trees & greeting were purchased and the snowflakes stamped to finish.
Free backing paper (from madaboutcards, I think), image stamped & coloured with Promarkers.
Recycled image, free backing paper, baker’s twine by Creative Expressions.

My 15 seconds of fame!

My 15 seconds of fame (yes, I know it’s supposed to be 15 minutes but that’s never going to happen!) came on 4th June 2011 when Create & Craft showed a birthday card I made for my sister on my Craft Robo.  I designed the backing paper myself using a free dingbat font.  I just did this as a test of how to get videos on my blog!
