Eight Cute Christmas Cards

Hi My Crafty  Blog Friends

I hope you are enjoying the weekend. This is the last day of my holiday it is back to work tomorrow but only in the mornings. Unfortunately my husband has to work today but he has promised to take me out for a meal when he gets back. So no cooking and lots of crafting that isn't a bad way to end the holiday.

Talking of my husband he set me a challenge. When we were getting ready to send out the Save the Date fridge magnets for our daughter's wedding we had a sort through my envelopes and we found a lot of C6 ones. They weren't quite right for the Save the Dates but he challenged me to use them for Christmas cards. This is the first eight I have made that fit that size of envelope. They are also nice and flat for posting.


I started by cutting down some card blanks so that they would fit the envelopes. I found the red spotty card in my stash and the sentiment too. 


I found this cute little stamp in our local charity shop for just 50p. It was all dirty and I wasn't sure if it would stamp okay but after a good clean it was fine. I used black archival on water colour card so that I could use my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens to colour the image. I used them to colour the background as well. 


Just to prove that I did make eight. 


I hope that you have a great week. I am back to work tomorrow. There are some things that need sorting out with my job so I am not sure how it is all going to work out - watch this space. 


Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
