This year I thought that I wanted to make some quick and uncomplicated cards but in the end they took just as long as last year. I just do not seem to be able to make really quick Xmas cards.
The background paper is a perfumed card that has a cinnamon smell and I bought some of this from last year’s show at Ally Pally but could not remember what store I bought it from. When I came to make my cards this year I realised that I did not have enough of the background paper and after searching on the web, found that I could get it from Art of Craft Ltd.
I used Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Squares for the shape of the card and used the 6” size for my card with the 5” for my background. I used the 3⅜ x 3⅜″ Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Squares LG for the verse insert.
Onto my background I mounted a Holly Flourish by Cheery Lynn and then to that added a Christmas recipe card. I had made the recipe cards from LOTV Christmas recipes set. I had stamped the card, coloured the border with copics and then distressed the cards with Aged Paper distress ink to get them that used look. I used a die from the Spellbinders Holly Accents at two corners of the card and added a greeting from either Cheery Lynn Happy Christmas set or Cheery Lynn Merry Christmas set.
For the stopper on the card I used the two smaller pointsettia leaves from Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia.
