I thought I'd show a couple of cards today that I've made for my Mum's friends.
The first one is quite traditional. I've used a Kraft card 6x6 blank and added a piece of quite vintage looking paper to it. I then stamped a greeting all over the paper in random places that says 'Wishing you a Merry Christmas'. I used a metallic bronze ink for this as I think it's very subtle. Then I added the journalling card and coloured a cardboard bauble with promarkers to match the colour scheme. I attached a length of ribbon to the top and finished the card off with a fancy staple and some holly.
The next card is quite different. Much brighter and a bit more contemporary!
For this one I used a stamp from Crafter's Companion and coloured it using their Spectrum Noir pens and some metallic promarkers. I mounted this on to a piece of Christmas paper and cut a frame from a co-ordinating paper using a new die I have bought. This one is called the Romantic Song frame and is from the Die'sire range.
To finish it off I added some rolled flowers which I coloured to match and some flat backed gems. A few sprigs of holly and some glitter and all done.
Hope you like them
