More Christmas Cards

Having given my box full of made up Christmas Cards to my mother for her to choose what she wanted to use, and having it returned with just three cards in the bottom – and me not having sent out a single card – I’ve had to get back to making up some more Christmas cards the end of this week.The first card I’ve got to show you today was one I made for a card swap last month.The 18 below are ones I’ve managed to make in a hurry for me to send out.  Still need to make another batch for hand delivering.  I’ve dipped back into my stash of Hunkydory die cut Christmas toppers again, as there’s no way I could do a lot of printing and cutting out of designs.  Of course, I’ve played around a bit with different cardstock and card sizes to give them a bit of individuality, and made them as Welsh “Nadolig Llawen” cards rather than use the greetings panels that came with the toppers from Hunkydory.

  1.  Away in a Manger by Judith Flavel (I only used one layer of the decoupage, not the main square background image, on this card, which I made for a card swap last month. Some intricate cutting out was involved in making the card, but I have made other cards using just the square main image, which, of course, didn’t involve any intricate cutting.  I must say that I’ve had a lot of use from this particular design this year.)
