A Christmas Card For A Swap
A Christmas Card or Decoration swap was organised on the “Chronic Crafters!” group on Facebook . I decidèd to put my name down and was allocated a swap partner.
As soon as I put my name down, even before I knew who my swap partner was I started thinking about which card to send. I decided not to send one I’d already made, but to make something new.
I got out some of my Christmas consumables. I have got quite a bit left despite the large number of cards I’ve already made.
I took a base card, that was pre-foiled with some baubles and a Merry Christmas. I think it was from a Create and Craft collection, the kit certainly came from C & C.
I chose a topper from one of the Hunkydory Christmas kits. Not sure which of the Hunkydory kit though as I have some bits left from several kits, including ones from previous years. The topper was one that came with a frameing element.
I used a roller glue tape on the topper inage itself and 2mm deep, double sided, foam tape around the back of the frame.
These were then stuck onto my chosen card front.
I used some sticky back faux gems to decorate the card.
I printed a greeing onto good quality paper, trimmed it and stuck it inside as an insert.
I received a lovely card with a penguin on back from my swap partner Avril.
It has decoupaged layer dimension to the image.
A big thank you to Avril for my card which is now on display in our sitting room.
So, I’m hopeing that I’ve shown you all the cards I’ve made for Christmas this year – but something tells me that I nay have missed some. I’m going to go through all my crafting photos over the next week or so, and if I find any that are not up on my blog I’ll be back with more to show you in the new year. Now I want to concentrate on makeing an assortment of everyday cards that I want to give various family members and friends as Calenig – New Year’s Gift – not really started yet, so it may be a project on a quiet day between Christmas and the New Year. I’ve also got several other crafting projects I’ve either planned or have started on. So no telling what I’ll have to show you next.
