Christmas Cards – 007 to 012

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Christmas Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you so much for poping over for a look, and a big thank you to those regular visitors who have left such kind comments on my various posts of late. I realy do appreciate you taking the time to do so.

I did start showing you my Christmas card makes a good while ago, and had a couple of dozen already made ready to photograph and show you, but things like an emergency operation got in the way.  So now I’m going to, very slowly, get back into blogging and crafting, and sooner or later I hope to catch up with things – at least I hope to do so before Christmas – no rush is there?!

Like the first ones I made, the cards in this batch have been quick and easy ones made using components from the latest Hunkydory Christmas Collection, and, as I was so late doing my cards last year and didn’t use up all my stash, I have quite a few bits added from last year’s Hunkydory Christmas Collection as well. As the cards became all jumbled up when I was putting them into a storage box I’m not quite sure which year’s collection the cards I’ve got to show you in the first few posts have been made from.

What I Did

Have a look at the first batch I showed – Here! – if you want to know what I did.

What I Used

I’ve decided to number the Christmas Cards I’m makeing this year in my blog posts, going on from one post to the next. That way I’ll know exactly how many cards I’ll have made by the end.

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.

Christmas Cards – 001 to 006

Christmas Cards

Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).  Thank you so much for poping over for a look, and a big thank you to those regular visitors who have left such kind comments on my various posts of late.  I realy do appreciate you taking the time to do so.

Well … I’ve officially started my Christmas Card Making!

Just a few at a time in small batches, but hopefully it will mean I’ll have ones ready to sell at the chapel, etc., in a couple of months time (assuming the COVID-19 virus is got under control and lockdown eases so that we can return to worship in the autumn).  I suppose I’ll have to try selling some online or over the phone to friends and family if the lockdown continues.

The first ones I’ve made have been quick and easy ones made using components from the latest Hunkydory Christmas Collection, and, as I was so late doing my cards last year and didn’t use up all my stash, I have quite a few bits added from last year’s Hunkydory Christmas Collection as well.  As the cards became all jumbled up when I was putting them into a storage box I’m not quite sure which year’s collection the cards I’ve got to show you in the first few posts have been made from.

What I Did

For this first batch of cards I simply went through the collection picking out matching background cardstock and inserts that went with the various die-cut toppers that were in the kit.

Each sheet of background cardstock was scored and folded in half.

I wanted to keep these first ones very simple, with very little dimension, so I only used glue, fingerlift tape, or 1mm deep foam tape to do the attaching of toppers and greetings banners where these were used.  This way I hope that all these cards will go through the Royal Mail on a Standard Letter stamp to save on postage.  I’ve got a “letter ruler” to check each card in it’s envelope so that I can be sure before I either post myself, or to tell anybody who buys the cards.  Peel-offs were used on some of the cards instead of banners.

I set up a greeting “Nadolig Llawen A Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” (The Welsh equivelent of Merry Christmas and a Happy New year, though not a direct translation) in MS Publisher on my laptop.  This greeting was printed onto the matching inserts before they were trimmed a bit and stuck inside each card.

I then use my stamping platform to stamp my details on the back of each card.

Note – Although the We R Memory Keepers “The Works” bit of equipment has the ability to cut, score and stamp, when I’m batch makeing I don’t like swapping the plate up and down for scoreing and cutting, or adding the stamping platform every time I want to stamp the details, so I do use separate bits of equipment for each job.

Cards As Gifts – J

Hi and welcome to my blog

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Cards As Gifts – 10th Batch

This batch is larger than my previous batches of half a dozen cards I showed you from this series that I made to give in small packs to friends and family. If you haven’t seen the first post explaining what I’ve been up to then you can see it – here .

You can see previous posts in this series of Cards As Gifts by following these links – 1st Batch; 2nd Batch; 3rd Batch; 4th Batch; 5th Batch; 6th Batch; 7th Batch; 8th Batch; 9th Batch.

10 packs have gone out, one having a few more cards in it.  I should say that they haven’t gone out in packs as per the batches I’ve been showing here – I actually photographed them as I was going along, I then put all the cards in envelopes and separated them out into bundles at random, so I have no idea which cards went to which people – other than the two A4 sized ones which went in the larger batch of eleven cards.

What I Did

Have a look at my previous post – here – if you’ve not already read about what I did to create the cards.

These are not in batches as they were sent out, just as they were made and photographed.

All 10 packs have now been received by the randomly chosen recipients from our Christmas card list.

So that’s the end of these series of posts showing all the cards I made to give away to friends and family.  As I showed at the start of the month I have used items from the collection to decorate the May page of my mother’s calendar, but there are still a lot of elements left from the collection that I haven’t used, so I expect you’ll be seeing more of them used over the next year or so.  In the meantime, I’m working on a few other things that will be appearing on my blog before long.

Cards As Gifts – 9th Batch

As I said in my 1st post of these series – here – I can’t do anything much to help anybody during this COVID-19 pandemic, but I did decide to help out a few friends and family members by makeing some cards and sending some a small pack of cards so that they had something in the house to send to people while they could not go out to shop for cards or go and visit people in person to give them birthday good wishes.

I also explained why I chose the theme I did for the cards I’m gifting.

The image is flat matted to the black layer, but that has foam behind it to give the matted image a bit of dimension off the card without makeing it too dimensional for a C5 envelope.

I do believe that all the packets of cards have arrived with those that have been chosen to receive them by now.

An A4 sized card, very similar to one I showed previously but with greeting in different place.

14.

I used a plain, white, base card and put on a foiled, wrap around, acetate, before sticking the topper on.  Acetate is attached behind the topper.

17.

Slightly different angle to try and show that the frame is lifted up a bit using foam tape.

18.

One of the special “concept” cards from the collection.

Hopefully by now some of the packets of cards will have arrived with those that have been chosen to receive them.

Thank you for coming over to have a look at my blog

Cards As Gifts – 2nd Batch

As I said in my last post – here – I can’t do anything much to help anybody during this COVID-19 pandemic, but I did decide to help out a few friends and family members by makeing some cards and then sending them to a few so that they had something in the house to send to people while they could not go out to shop for cards or go and visit people in person to give them birthday good wishes.

I also explained why I chose the theme I did for the cards I’m gifting.

What I Did

Have a look at my previous post – here – if you’ve not already read about what I did to create the cards.

Finished Cards

These are not in batches as they will be sent out, just as they were made and photographed.

One of the concept cards in the collection.  For this one I haven’t stuck on any greeting panel.

The back of these special cards have a panel where a greeting can be written.

This is the simple insert that’s inside the Welsh cards.  The English ones have greetings from the collection stuck inside on the insert as well.

The cards have now started to be delivered.
