So, as another week flies by ~ I've finally managed to make a dent in that "to-do" list ~ the tree and house is all decorated and resembling a winter wonderland, cards are all written and in the post and most of the presents have been bought. As for crafting, I think I can finally see light at the end of this very long tunnel and with only three more crafty commissions to make before the end of the year, I will finally be able to pack away the crafty stash and at long last see my dining room table again!! Yay....
In the meantime, I just wanted to pop by to say a big hello to all my new followers, here and over on Facebook and I wanted to share a couple of Christmas cards that I made for the December issue of Making Cards Magazine.
For this set of cards, I created a chalkboard effect on black card and added elegant hanging ornaments, together with holly leaves and bows and kept the colour palette a gorgeous pale aqua and white with just a hint of green and red.
Card 1 ~ 'Tis The Season
To create the chalkboard effect, I stamped the message onto black card using Versamark Watermark Stamp Pad and then lightly dusted a small amount of Ranger Perfect Pearls over the top to reveal the message.
Card 2 ~ A Very Merry Christmas
Thank you so much for stopping by today and if you still have some Christmas cards of your own to make, then I really hope you'll be inspired by these cards. I'd love to see anything you make, so never hesitate to get in touch to share your projects with me!
Have a great day and see you all soon...love Emma x
