Some English Christmas Cards
Anybody who’s visited my blog before will probably have noticed that the vast majority of my cards are in Welsh. I do however make a small number in English, mostly when specifically asked for them.
To be ready when asked, rather than making after being asked, this year I decided to make a few assorted English Christmas cards and put them in a big plastic bag where anybody can choose 1 for £1 or 6 for £5. Again I’m donating a percentage of any money made to our Sunday School.
I’ve not made a lot to fill the bag yet, but here are the first few.
Made using items from this year’s Hunkydory Christmas collection. It has a greeting added to the inside as well.
The next two were made using the same Peter Rabbit topper from my box of old Christmas stash, and therefore look very similar. I therefore made them slightly different by adding holly peeloffs, to the corners of the topper on one and the corner of the foiled background on the other. Both had small inserts added which were made using different Peter Rabit backgrounds.
The next three cards are again made using Hunkydory toppers. Not sure whether they are from this year’s collection or leftovers from previous years that were in my box of Christmas “makings” that was out the garage.
These I have kept very simple, thus keeping the cost and dimensions dkwn. I’ve just stuck on toppers onto a scored and folded, hammered, cardstock of a suitable size.
Each one has an insert inside that says “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year”
So that’s it for this blog post. I’ll have some more Christmas card, both Welsh and English, to show you over the next few weeks, so please do pop back to have a look.

Genuine comments will go live when I’ve checked through the list – usually a couple of times a day.) (Thank you to every body who’s left comments on my previous blog posts. I really do appreciate them all.)
