Christmas cards

Well check me out, I'm organised for Christmas already!  OK, so that's not strictly true as I've done nothing else to organise, just made my cards, but that's a good start.


I used my Sizzex Big Shot to cut out the Joy, tree and stocking motifs from funky foam.  I did a set of each in two different colours, then swapped parts of them over.  


Each motif is backed with a square of patterned paper and the tree has some tiny jewels added.


I used some of the cut out parts to make a square card using three complimentary colours of tree and a single joy.

Simple, quick, done!  Now I just have to remember to write in them and actually post them...

It's the writing them I always have to wind myself up for!

What a great idea, to swap the bits and parts out - and also, to add the little bling jewels!

what a good idea, I sold my sizzix though as I needed the cash for more fabric!

You are way more organised than me, Wendy. What a great idea for Christmas cards - very effective and SO much better than commercial cards.

Oh that's lovely! Wish I had festive dies for my sizzix and oh foam! Well done on being organised I've been planning to do some embroidered designs but so far not out of my head yet.
