Mum's Christmas cards

2 posts in 2 days, thats pretty good going for me! Not quite sure what has happened to my background, will have to find out what's going on, time for a new one maybe!

Here are the Christmas cards I made for Mum, I did make special cards for Dad and my In Laws but forgot to photograph them before I sealed the envelopes :-(

The first one is from the children to their Nanny. The image is a Magnolia courtesy of my SBS21 sister, who sent me a stash of images with my birthday card, thanks Heather you are a star, really love this image. Coloured with Promarkers, which I used to colour the mulberry paper, organza ribbon and scalloped circle. The charm is from Ebay, I found a local seller who sells them in batches of 10, so I was able to buy a selection and could go and collect them, so no waiting for the postman!

I dusted off my medallion stamps for this next one..... using Petite Holly, with 3 different coloured card, dark green, pistachio, and red, I stamped and cut 7 layers, glittered with crystal art institute glitter. I used gold holly embossed card to mount the medallion on and finished off with some organza ribbon and peel off greetings. Just noticed detail not too clear in the picture - better get some photography tips off of my daughter!

Wishing everyone a Healthy & Happy New Year.
