Christmas Wishes

Hello Everyone

I love this one! Perfect for sending those Christmas wishes. There’s a nice contrast between the spotty green paper and the tartan paper, but both still made us of those famous Christmas colours. Looking at the card in more detail you can see the 3 white snowflakes down the side, with green droplets in the middle. Another lovely card to show off Christmas in August!

Seasons Greetings

Evening!

I’ve made another Christmas card! And I loved making this one. I used the most popular Christmas colours, red, green and gold, to make this lovely card. You can see the shimmer of the Metallica line used on the green background and you can just about see the slightly different shades of green between each line. I made a simple gold leaf reef with some coloured droplets to add a pop of colour. I can’t wait to send seasons greetings with a card as lovely as this.

Love & Thanks

Good Evening All

Autumn is almost here so here is a card showing off those lovely autumn colours. I love the colours on this one, the greens and oranges work so well together. It’s not too fancy and not too simple, it’s inbetween and I think it’s lovely. I know anyone would be more than happy to receive this card, with much love and thanks!

Oh Christmas Treat

Hello Everyone!

Another Christmas card for you all to enjoy. Not a traditional Christmas colour but I love how bold and bright the pink is. White dots for snow on the background, then with a layer of snow flake paper which all nicely frames the tree in the middle. The lovely little Christmas tree stamp contains the working ‘oh Christmas treat’ again with a snowflake background. I then added a sparkly bow to tie it all together.

Happiest Christmas Wishes

Good Afternoon

It is Christmas in August again as my latest card is this lovely Christmas card. It has a wood effect background which works so well with the lighter gold and brown colours. Slightly different to my previous Christmas cards which have focused on red and green colours, but it makes it more unique. The love the layering of the paper, especially the square that is off centre. Finished off with a beautiful reindeer stamp and wishing you the Happiest Christmas Wishes.

Autumn

Evening Everyone,

Today I am posting an seasonal themed card seems as though Autumn is almost here. The paper used in this card is gorgeous, framing the wildlife. This type of paper is used a lot for autumn themes as it shows off the animals we associate with the season. There is a lovely spot board around the edge which has a subtle colour change for each side, only lightly saturated so it doesn't draw away attention from the centre of the card. Down in the bottom corner is a circle which holds the text 'Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile'

I'd Slay A Dragon For You

Hello Everyone 
What a lovely afternoon it is!

Today's card is definitely a cute one which I'm sure you would love to give to someone you care about. It has the cutest knight and princess in the centre of the card with an adorable strip pattern hearts paper. With the wording 'I'd slay a dragon for you' it just gets better. The nice subtle stripe background adds more details and colour without drawing attention away from the main focus of the card. Who would you slay a dragon for? I'm sure they would want to receive this card.

Noel

Good Evening, 

Third Christmas card in a row! Except this one shines! It’s a great metallic shimmer centre piece with the individual parts cut out to make the mistletoe leaves. Using gold, red and green it ties in nicely with the Christmas theme, as well as the snowflake paper around the edge. I’m sure this is a Christmas card you’d want to send out, it looks amazing and stands out from the crowd.

Merry Christmas

Good Evening Everyone

I have not posted for a while so here is a fantastic post to start back with! You have to get making those Christmas cards early and here is one of my first ones. The card itself it a beautiful snowflake stocking with a little bow, it has an oval behind it to make it strand out from the textured white background. These cards come in a snowflake patterned box, with a deep red boarder which ties up with a matching bow. I feel its an amazing starting Christmas card and the box gives it a beautiful finish.
