Ready for a change from Christmas and it’s only October!

Well for the last two weeks I have been making Christmas cards to take to the shop where I work, hopefully to sell.  I can’t believe how long it has taken me to make a small pile of cards!  I’ve tried to do different cards, some cute, some traditional, with a mix of verses inside.  It has certainly taxed the old brain keeping coming up with something different.  Anyway it’s work tomorrow so I’ll have a few days off card making until next week when I think I’ll see what cards I need to make for birthdays which are coming up!

This is the last card I made today, and I decided to do a step card.  I measured up and cut out the card to fit the Woodware stamp which I coloured with ProMarkers and used some peel-off gold spots on the bauble.  Previously I had only used this stamp to paper piece because it does lend itself to that but I think it looks really sharp coloured in too.  I used some of the holly off the stamp for the side panels.
