BIG Cards

Had a request to make some big cards. Panic! I don't do big cards.Any way came up with these-
This one above is my favourite. A lovely picture of an old car outside a house in the snow. Backed on to some swirly paper, all from craftsuprint.

This next one, again from craftsuprint, is simply an A4 image backed on to silver mirri card,
glittered, and a bow and greeting added.
The third attempt is another craftsuprint image of Father Christmas flying through the sky.
Put together as a side stacker, some printed paper and velvet ribbon to finish.
The next 2 use Kanban products.
To ring the changes
I decided to do a foldback design. Printed off a background image to cover the inside,
used gold linen and decorative paper for the foldback and a lovely Robin topper
as the main focus.
Finally a snowman topper from Kanban.
I found some lovely papers in a download kit from nitwit collections
for the background. Used silver mirri for accents and red card for contrast.
This completes my selection suitable for men.
Watch this space for some more girlie varieties.

More Christmas Cards

Have really enjoyed making these cards using Penny Black images. This one reminds me so much of Reg running riot round the garden.
This little cat hugging a mouse is another cute image.

Used watercolour pencils to colour both of these.

This image of a hedgehog and robin was
also watercoloured, then I punched some snowflakes for decoration.
This next card is my first attempt at an easel card which seem to be very popular.Again another Reg lookalike.
Probably a little more angelic than Reg! I thought the title for this had to be
"Oh Christmas Tree"

Molly's School Sing-along

Is it really that long ago since I visited my blog?! Anyway this morning we went along to Bugle Chapel for Piccolos Christmas Sing-along and it was beautiful. All the children are 5 and under. This is a hanging they made to hang above the stage. The children came in all dressed up as angels, shepherds etc. Molly was an angel. Her Mum thinks this will be the only time Molly will look angelic! She was joining in with the songs and shaking the jingle bells.   Then to finish the morning off, Father Christmas turned up with chocolate for all of them.
