3rd Batch Of Christmas Cards For 2019 – English Cards
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before).
A few weeks ago I showed you an assortment of Birthday and Sympathy cards I’d made, ready to send a box full to the boss of our carers who wanted to buy a few, so she had plenty to choose from. She’s now phoned me to say she wants to keep the whole box full so will be totting up the total and sending me the money. That will be a nice portion towards the cost of this month’s crafting goodies as I think I’ll need some more various sticky stuff to make all the Christmas cards I need to make.
She also asked me to make her another 60th birthday card and a retirement card. So, while I’m still going to try and keep working on a few batches a week of Christmas cards over the next month or so, I will need to set a little time aside in the next week to create these requested cards.
Today I have my 3rd batch of Christmas cards to show you, this time a pack of 6 very simple English ones, and one more ornate Welsh one.
What I Used
- 6″ square, ready scored, kraft card, base cards with envelopes
- 120gsm white printer paper onto which a greeting was printed to use as an insert for all the cards
- Hunkydory Christmas Cardmaking Collection – cardstock, toppers, decoupage, square little books, etc., used as main components of cards
- Fingerlift Tape
- Greetings Banners
- Foam Tape – black and white of various heights
- Pinflair Glue Gel
- Pinflair Bookbinding glue
- Paper Cutter – Cutterpilar Pro
- Score Board – Hoogie Board
Pack Of 6 Cards
I used a page from the little square book from the Hunkydory collection stuck flat for each card, adding a greeting from one of the die-cut sheets for some of them. Each has a printed insert inside.

As well as working on my Christmas cards I have a small number of other projects on the go at the moment, so my next post might be more Christmas cards or might be something else – keep an eye out.
