Oh Christmas cards, oh christmas card

all made and written just got to buy the stamps and seal the envelopes, one of my least enjoyable craft things of the year.  This year I went for the same card for everyone, just a slightly different method for the snowflakes. . .

From left to right the methods were, 1) stippled luminsce arts paints  2) ferro texture paste  3) irredescent embossing powder  4)  mica paint, which bled too much so traced in white Inkssentials pen 5) ferro paste  6)  Inka Gold.   All done through a Crafters workshop snowflake mask.  The photo was a tree in our garden in last years snow.

Big sigh of relief, just three more special ones to do for my men, and then I can forgot about it, and move onto presents and food.  We make a rod for our own back dont we girls.

What a nice idea to have an actual photo. Great how you made them all 'the same but different'. It's always a good job done when the cards are in the post! x

These are fantastic, well done. I've bought mine, lol.

How sensible to go for variations on a theme. I didn't, so have made a rod for my own back. One more to go (she likes traditional and glittered - so not me!)
