The last of my Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog space.  So happy you could drop by at this busy time of the year.
Can't believe it's only three more sleeps to Christmas.   Is it just me, or did this year go by even quicker than the last??
I have the last of my Christmas cards to share with you.  Well, the last for this year anyway.  Once again these are very similar to the previous ones I've shown you.   Same ingredients, just a little different in the arrangements!

Kaisercraft DP for the first layer and then Meg's Garden 'A Gentleman on Time' DP torn diagonally and placed over the top.  Added a bit of texture with Crackle paint through a stencil and dry brushed randomly with gesso. 

Used some gorgeous 2Crafty chippies again.  A Card Word Circle from the Christmas Set (coloured with Scarlet VersaColor and coated in Glossy Accents) and one of their cute little Mini Reindeers which was simply covered in silver glitter. 

A little bit of gauze  (coloured with watered down red acrylic paint) was placed under the cluster and the flowers and that gorgeous little piece of lace ribbon are all available from Meg's Garden.

Once again, the inside was lined with more of the Gentleman papers.  The two pockets were created to hold Gift Cards and a tag for the verse.

On the second card I've used Meg's Garden 'Correspondence' papers.

Distressed the edges as you can see and, again, randomly brushed everything with gesso.  I also added some dry wall tape and sprayed over it with watered down acrylic paint.

The bit of gold chippie you can see is a piece from 2Crafty's  Bubble Grid Panel.  It was cut from a piece which I used on one of my other cards.  I don't throw out odd bits of chipboard like this, you never know when they might come in handy

The flowers are all available from Meg's Garden.  The green one started out white and was a semi opened rose.  When I coloured it with watercolour paint it opened out as you see here.

The inside is also lined with the Correspondence papers and this card only has the one pocket for a gift card.  I will print the verse on a tag and simply attach it to the other side.

That's all folks!!!  The last of my Christmas cards for this year.
This will be my last post before Christmas so, from me to you, I hope you have an absolutely wonderful Christmas.  Lots of love and laughter around the tree with friends and family and lots of the things that matter most to you.
Blessings and joy to you all.

Thank you so much for visiting and enjoy the rest of your day.

  1. So Beautiful Margy.... I am always inspired to create when I see your cards.
    Just wondering what the little red ball are and where did you get them...they are gorgeous.
    Thank you for all your beautiful comments on my work....always much appreciated. x
    Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year. xx

    1. Hi Janice, Thank you so much for your lovely comment and I really love your work it is awesome!! The little red balls were part of a Christmas decoration I purchased from Ned's. I don't know if you have that store where you live but the decoration is just a really long piece of paper wrapped wire with tons of these little berry like balls attached to it. It was very cheap and I simply cut all the balls off to use on my cards. Hope this helps. oxox
