Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog
Hi all! Time to show you some more of the Christmas cards I’ve made so far this year.
What I Did
This batch of cards is different to the previous batches, although I do have some more of the Hunkydory ones to show you again, but I thought I’d go for something different this time.
Each are based on a 6″x6″ square card with a border drawn around about 1cm in from each edge in a fine Sharpie pen. I printed out the greeting “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” onto perleascent paper – some in red and some in green.
These were then trimmed and stuck onto corresponding cardstock and the mat trimmed to around 0.5cm or 1cm before sticking onto the base card.
I had bought a pack of die cut decoupage which I spent an afternoon popping out and layering up using Pinflair Glue Gel. These were left for a while – OK, quite a long time as I wasn’t feeling up to much at the time – then I stuck the decoupage onto the cards.
I finished off by putting a simple insert with the same greeting printed in black onto 120gsm paper on the inside.
I stamped my details onto the back to finish.
Althoug not large, because of the decoupage, these cards will not go through the post using a standard letter stamp, so either hand deliver, in with a parcel, or a large letter stamp for these.

As I said in a previous Christmas card post – I’m numbering the Christmas cards I’m blogging this year so that I’ll know exactly how many I’ve made in total by Christmas.
The inside of each of these is the same –
As well as many more Christmas cards made from Hunkydory cardmaking sheets I’ve also started working on other types of Christmas cards, including some decoupaged ones, so keep an eye out for a lot of Christmas card posts over the next few weeks.
