Gosh, I really don’t know where this year has gone – I am starting to think about Christmas presents! And I still seem to be stuck on making Christmas cards:
I came up with a simpler version of this card first, using a notelet, as an idea for our recent craft retreat. We gave our attendees a take-away goody bag and as there was optional free crafting time at the end of the day, we wanted to give them some ideas they could use if they wanted to. The simple wrath was made sing the Swirly Scribbles framelit – it’s in Emerald Envy. The skinny layer and the sentiment (from Merriest Wishes in the Autumn/Winter catalogue) are Real Red – I love this bright colour combination for Christmas cards! A bow tied in gold twine from the Baker’s Twine trio pack (A/W catalogue again) and adhered with a glue dot finished my clean and simple project off.
I added some layers and turned this into a full sized card for a class I gave for a friend and 5 of her friends on Sunday – she provided bellinis (mimosas if you’re American), nibbles and an amazing chocolate gateaux and we all had a great afternoon! If you’d like to host a Christmas card party for me please get in touch – your friends pay £10 for four cards and you get the class for free as a thank you for hosting. If four cards just aren’t enough we can also do a stamp-a-stack (4 cards each of 4 desings) – I’m running one of those at my home on Saturday 3rd December – again get in touch if you’d like to attend.
I’m really pleased with this card – hope you like it! See you on Thursday.
