Making Christmas Cards!

Hi,

     I have been so so busy!  This time of the year is always a challenge especially when you work in a school!  Christmas Plays and Fayres and all the other fun and exciting things that go on.  I have managed to make some more Christmas cards in the middle of all this and I have some other projects to share with you once they are complete!

    These are the cards I have made this time with a "ho ho!" theme.


I began by using some white card stock I had in my stash and used my circular hole punch to punch out two circles on the outer side of the front of the card.


Then I used some pale blue paper from this lovely "Silent Night" paper pad that I bought from Hobbycraft to cover the circles



I then used a snowflake die from this Spellbinders set to cut out two snowflakes using some of the white glittery effect paper in the pad of paper stock.  Next I attached these on top of the "o's".


Then I added some snowflake stickers on top to add a little more glitter!  


Finally I cut some "H's" from some poinsettia patterned paper I had found in my stash to complete the "ho ho."


All done!  A nice easy but quite effective Christmas card.  I have made a few of these.  Just need to write them now!  Looking forward to Christmas I hope you are too!

Bye for now

Von xx
