First Christmas card of the year...
I was going to do the garden, but that got washed out. Then I thought I should do housework, but my craft room was calling to me instead. Today, I thought I would go through my stash and make a card with what was already available without too much effort.
And what was available was the remnants of a Kanban christmas kit, some toppers that I printed off last year from the Create and Craft Triple treasures cds I bought some time ago, and some snowflakes that were the bits left over from a memory box border die.
I used the card blank from the Kanban kit and stuck the snowflakes down the panel with pinflair gel. In the inside, I distressed an embossed piece of card from the Kanban kit with tumbled glass distress ink around the edges and mounted it onto some blue shiny card to leave a very thin border. I then ran the topper though the 'Bug using the biggest of the large labels die and mounted that in the centre of the panel using pinflair glue. Lastly, the Merry Christmas sentiment also came from the Kanban kit, but I used the tumbled glass distress inks to take the stark "whiteness" off of it.
One card done - many more to go... Especially since this is the first year that my mum won't be helping me make them. I suspect it is going to take me a long while to do them all... :(
I was going to enter this card into the CD Sunday challenge this week - Cute Christmas but like a twit I didn't realise that the deadline was 1pm on Saturday.. *sigh* let that be a lesson to everyone - when you enter a challenge, READ THE RULES!!!!
