Christmas Wrap-up

A picture-heavy post to finish the year’s Christmas cards. First, the card I’m probably most proud of: the one to our son who adores West Highland Terriers but unfortunately this is the nearest he’s ever likely to get to owning one!

The Westie, coloured using cheap coloured pencils from W H Smith, is a free download from Bird’s Cards, which is an amazing collection of free resources for cardmakers. The reason I’m so proud, though, is that although I’m not an artist I in fact drew the tree by hand after watching a Youtube video!
My second card is the one for my husband, the word art having been cut on my Sizzix Eclips:
The kisses were drawn in white gel pen and the stamped “Husband” is from Little Claire. Next up is an image from Mo’s Digital Pencil, coloured in Promarkers with a sponged Memento Summer Sky background:
And last, but by no means least, the one to my father-in-law which uses Perfect Pearls on a stamped image from IndigoBlu, a chipboard word which I’ve coloured in gold & added some Anita’s Clear Gloss. The remainder of the greeting is also from the IndigoBlu set. I’m entering this one into the current “Family” challenge over at Less is More:
