More Christmas Cards

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.  So lovely that you took the time to visit at this busy time of the year.
Hope all your preparations for Christmas are going as planned.  I'm pleased to say that all our gift shopping is done, I only need to worry about the food now, and that's a worry enough all by itself!  LOL!!

Anyway, I am here to share another of my Christmas cards.  I didn't make many this year.  We have been so busy over the last few months and we've also been away.  Then, when we got back from our Cruise, I ended up with the most horrendous cold and had no interest in doing anything much.  Most days it was hard just getting out of bed.  Hate colds with a vengeance!!  But, I did manage to make cards for my family so here I am to share another one with you.

As in my last post, I haven't used Christmas papers with this one, I have again used paper from the Gentleman Collection from Meg's Garden.  This one is called  'A Gentleman's Auto'.

I love these papers but, of course, the image of the car was not really suitable for my card so I made sure I cut my papers around that.  I will use that image on something else.

The chippie below is a piece from the 'Bubble Grid Panel' by 2Crafty Chipboard.  The quote is from Kaisercraft's Christmas Carol Collectables.

I simply cut a small piece from the Bubble Grid  Panel, covered it in gesso and then painted the 'bubbles' with acrylic paint and coated them with Glossy Accents.

The inside was lined with the same 'Gentleman' papers.  I gold embossed the edges, did a little stamping and stenciling and created a pocket on the left to hold a tag.

The quote on the tag was found as a free printable on the net.  The back of the tag was left blank for a personal message.

One again, my cards are all very similar this year.  When you have to make a lot of cards for the same occasion it is simply easier to use a design you like and simply change the embellies.  Especially when you've left things as late as I have.  LOL!
