A Crafty Christmas

It would be so easy to pop to the shops and buy a pack of Christmas cards.  In fact, that is what I usually do.  This year though, I am going to endeavour to make as many of my own cards as I can (I will still be using shop bought too:-)

Inspired my my lovely new set of wood block stamps, I created background papers using up paints in my stash and recycling old papers, writing, music sheets etc.  I then used acrylic paint to print the message and added some glitter.  I cut around the images and stuck them onto linen card stock.

As a fan of the clean and simple style of cards I am quite happy to leave a lot of white space around the central image.

Well, I'd best crack on now.  I hope your week is going well.



  1. Clean and simple works out just good. Greetings!

  2. fun, fun, fun, Simone... enjoy the process and the result.

  3. Charming cards. I'd be thrilled to get a card like this from a friend. Have fun! xo

  4. Elegant and stylish.
    A terrific crafty success.
