Quick Christmas Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going?  I have had a very busy two days. I am hoping today will be a little calmer. There are so many thing I want to do.

I am still making Christmas cards. This year I don't really have any idea how many I will need. This card was really quick to make.

Last year I got the member's gift from Create and Craft it was a stack of A6 Christmas images called Cosy Christmas. I did use some of the sheets last Christmas but I have struggled with ideas for some of the sheets. The background is one of the sheets. 

I added an image that I got in a little packet of toppers from the Range. This is the last one. I am trying to use things up. 

Earlier in the year our local craft shop had an enormous sale. I picked up this IndigoBlu Christmas stamp for just 50p. Yesterday I used it for the first time. It is a rubber stamp and it worked well with my Tim Holtz stamping platform. You can flip the top so it can handle clear or rubber stamps. I did quite a bit of stamping yesterday while it was out. The results are very good. Some stamps I had struggled with before stamped first time.  It is also very good for batch stamping once you have everything set up. 

This is another card for the Christmas pile which is getting bigger. 

Enjoy the rest of the week 

Happy Crafting

  5. Hi Jackie. Fab card...I used a lot of these topper things for my card. Made life easier for those cards for what I call normal that I mean not my special family ones. You've reminded me that I've got so,ex left...thank you x

  6. Great card Jackie. Using toppers and pre-printed backgrounds is the perfect way to build up a Christmas card stash. Full marks for using things up, I always end up with oddments that I never know what to do with. They usually end up at school in the make and do corner.
