More Christmas Cards With A Bit Of A Variety

-oOo-

As anybody who has viewed my blog posts over the last few weeks will have seen, this year I decided to make up packs of Christmas cards, which I’ve been putting into cello bags with a bit of paper with the bag price and my details. These cards have mostly been quick and easy cards, around a half stuck completely with fingerlift tape to keep the dimension flat, with some using recycled cards as toppers.

But I have made some more dimensional cards, and some more ornate cards, which I’ve individually bagged and priced.

These most definately will not go through the UK post using a standard letter stamp.

This first one is a decoupaged one made using a Hunkydory decoupage sheet and layered using 2mm or 3mm deep foam tape.  I used a greeting banner, also stuck using foam tape, and some sticky back gems, to finish the card off.

I should have gone a bit at an angle for this close-up of the decoupage as the fact that it is heading on for an inch deep doesn’t show in this photo.

Here’s the card.  It has a matching insert with a peeloff greeting.

For this next card I used a Kanban 8″ square foiled border base card.

I used the Kit N Caboodle Circle Cutter to cut out the circle the image is sitting on as well as the white and silver circular frames.

The Nativity scene cuts were cut from silver mirror card using this year’s Tattered Lace Christmas Nativity dies.

I used my Brother ScanNCut to draw the greeting and the holly leaf cluster in glue onto parchment before I foiled them in silver.

I cut a strip of white cardstock the right size to go behind my greeting, cut the greeting a little longer than needed so that it could be wrapped around the card and attached with tape on the back, so that no glue would show on the front. Another, longer, piece of silver cardstock was cut out and trimmed at the ends.  I firstly glued the backing circle to my base card, then glued on the die cut Bethlehem scene. I glued the white frame circle onto the silver one before attaching them to the card front with 3mm deep shaker foam tape.  The same tape was also used to attach the layered greeting.  As it was a single element I just hand cut the holly, rather than getting the ScanNCut to do it, and used a dab of glue behind a berry to attach it to the card.  A dab of glue was used behind the star and the camel’s legs to attach them to the frame.

This photo is taken at a slight angle and gives a bit of a better view of the dimension.

The next one is another made using some items from Hunkydory.  This time one with a Nativity scene.

It is decoupaged and very dimensional, as I’ve tried to show with these photos.

And this is what it looks like from the front.

.

So, that’s it for today – a small assortment of cards made up where a percentage of the money raised will go towards the work of our Sunday School.

.

I’ll still have some more Christmas card posts to come from the batches I made during August, so please do pop back to have a look.

One More Selection Of Cards

Another Selection Of Christmas Cards

-oOo-

By the time I am writing this post I have so many Christmas card photos on my camera I’m not even sure if I’ve shown you these already or not. I don’t think I have, but please forgive me if some from a previous post have sneaked in to this batch.

These are all made using items from the Hunkydory collection with some extra cardstock, banners, etc.

Rather than directly sticking the toppers to the base cards I have used some 2mm or 3mm deep foam tape to attach this time. It gives a little dimension, so will need a Large Letter stamp to post in the UK, but are great for hand delivery.

 All have an insert that says Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda (Happy Christmas and a Good New Year) on the inside.

 

Trying to get a photo to show some of the dimension of the previous card.

 

 

If I remember rightly, these have gone into a big bag of assorted Welsh cards where people can have a look through and select individual cards.

.

I’ll do have a small number more of Christmas card posts to come over the next few days, but I have now re-started on my sewing projects, so expect updates on how my Big Work In Progress is coming along in the near future as well.

Christmas Cards I Made Last Year

Christmas Cards I Made Last Year

-oOo-

The batch of 8 cards I’m going to show you today were actually put together around this time last year, but in the chaos when my father came out of hospital they were thrown into the garage by somebody, and have only just come to the surface this month.

These were all made using a Hunkydory Filigree Frames collection, and were made up last year more or less as intended, with matching insert inside. And supplied envelope tucked inside.

The only thing I hadn’t done was put a greeting inside and out.

I have two different sized “Nadolig Llawen” peeloffs (Welsh for Happy Christmas), so the smaller peeloffs went on the outside and the larger peeloffs went inside on the inserts . There wasn’t room for the larger peeloffs on the outside because of lack of space and the fact that the base card itself was printed.

The kit included enough material to make another batch of cards the same as these but I’ve not finished them off yet as one of our carers has expressed an interest in having some with English greetings for English family members.

So, that’s it for today – another pack of cards made up where a percentage of the money raised will go towards the work of our Sunday School.

.

I’ll have some more Christmas card posts to come over the next few weeks, so please do pop back to have a look.

Christmas Cards From Inserts

 Posted by at 08:00 am

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
A Small Pack Of Christmas Cards

-oOo-

I’ve set myself a bit of a challenge to make as many batches of Christmas cards as I can during the rest of August so that I can then put my box of Christmas card consumables back in the garage for a bit and get my quilting back out to work on that in September. I’m not saying that I’ll have made all I need for the year, but I’ll have a fair few to start off with, and can get stuff back out the end of October/November if I’ve had a lot of sales and need to make more for Mam and I to send ourselves.

If I get what I want made up I’ll probably have Christmas card blog posts to show you well into September.

For the cards I’m going to show you today I used different inserts from this year’s Hunkydory collection.  I also made my own foiled greetings on parchment.

I started by using the downloaded Canvas software to design the words Nadolig Llawen (Welsh for Happy Christmas) ar around 4″ in length. These I sent to my ScanNCut and used the foiling feature to write the words with a glue pen onto Parchment paper.

These were then covered with foil, some silver and some gold, before beeing rubbed and the foil sheet removed.  The greetings were then cut out in strips.

I took the bundle of inserts from this year’s Hunkeydory Christmas selection and chose some with an image forming part of the sheet.  I cut an image panel of 4.25″ x 6.25″ from each insert before trimming a quarter inch from the height of the piece that was left.

I cut various coloured and foil panels of 4.75″ x 6.75″ to use as mats for my images.  Before sticking the images to the mats I wrapped parchment greeting strips around each image, using tape at the back to keep it in place.  Double sided, fingerlift tape was used to attach image to mat, and then the matted image to a plain white, pre scored, A5 base card.

I then used the same tape to attached the left over bit of matching insert, gaving folded down a bit, inside each card.

I added peeloffs saying Nadolig Llawen to the inserts.

Here are the cards I created, together with the inserts of the first two, to give you an idea of what I did.

/

As you can see, the cards have a much softer look than the ones made using the same image toppers from the collection, but those who’ve seen them here have commented that they like the effect as it is so different to anything in the shops.

So, that’s it for today – quick and simple cards.

.

I’ll have some more Christmas card posts to come over the next few weeks, so please do pop back to have a look.

Recycling Old Christmas Cards

-oOo-

For the batch of Christmas cards I’ve got to show you today I have recycled old Christmas cards.

A few friends give me their old cards, both Christmas and more general ones from other occasions during the year, and any that are suitable I re-use to create cards that can be sold and the proceeds go the Sunday School.

For the batch I’m going to show today I used square, pre cut and scored kraft card base cards that came with matching envelopes. As most of the members of our chapel have mentioned in the past that they want cards they can post using a standard size letter stamp, I have kept the profile of these cards low by only using one matt to layer with the recycled image and sticking with fingerlift tape. I used assorted Adorable Scorable cardstock, cut to just a little larger than the trimmed recycled image, to mat each image onto.

I put an insert inside each one that says “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda” (Welsh equivelent for Happy Christmas and a Good New Year). And on the outside I stuck a greetings peel-off.  By not adding lots of embelishments I can keep the cost of the cards low for me to make, keep the price for the pack low, and pass on all the money made for the recycled cards to the Sunday School.

This is the paper with information that is in the package with these cards.

I’ll have some more Christmas card posts to come over the next few weeks, so please do pop back to have a look.

Starting My Christmas Card Making

 Posted by at 08:00 am
Jun 212018
 

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
Christmas Cards

-oOo-

A few days ago I figured it was time for me to start my Christmas card making for 2018.

I had decided to buy the Hunkydory 2018 collection. While I do have some Christmas stuff left from previous years I don’t think there’s enough to make all I’ll need for this year for my mother, myself, and the small number of family and friends who buy some from me. I actually gave some stuff that had English greetings away to my sister-in-law last year as I make very few English Christmas cards myself – only when specifically asked for them.

Most of those who come to me for cards express a need for the majority of the cards to be of a size and weight that’s suitable for posting as a standard letter in the UK – nobody wants all their Christmas cards costing more than is absolutely necessary to post.  The only time I’m asked for more ornate, dimentional, cards are when they will be hand delivered or when they will be posted inside a parcel.

As well as Hunkydory cardmaking stuff I’ve also got some old cards to recycle, some dies and stencils on a Christmas theme, and a few other Christmas cardmaking bits from other manufacturers.

But it was to this year’s Hunkydory kit I turned first.

I just picked one of the kit packs from the box and chose one nativity topper sheet from that kit.  I hunted out two backgrounds that went with the chosen toppers as well as three sheets of Adorable Scoreable that came in the collection.  From my crafting stock I collected an A3 sheet of white cardstock, some scalloped edge cards, some peeloffs, assorted tape, ink and stencil.

For this first card I simply chose a background sheet from the kit, scored and folded it, and stuck on a topper with 2mm deep foam tape.

Taking the other sheet of background cardstock I cut it into two topper pieces, which leaves me with one piece left to use again.

One of the pieces I matted and layered and made into an easel card using the scored and trimmed sheet of A3 cardstock and some of the Adorable Scorable.

The second piece I matted and layered  onto a base card I’d made with the left over bit of the A3 cardstock.  I used the Dreamees perforating tool to put a border around the card.

I used a stencil of the words Nadolig Llawen and some red Dinky Inkies and created a greetings topper.  The sheet of Hunkydory toppers had three very small images on it, so using these, my stenciled greeting, and a scalloped edge 6″ square card I made this simple card.

For this card I put peeloffs around the outside of a 7″ x 5″ scalloped edge card. Attached a paper ribbon from the sheet onto the card ftont using finger lift tape. And attached the topper using 2mm dee double sided foam tape.

For this card I took a 6″ square card, put on two pieces of green Adorable Scorable, stuck on the topper, and went round the edges twice with a fine marker.

So, there they are – my first batch of Christmas cads for 2018.

.

That’s it for today.  More crafting TO COME before too long, so please do pop in for a look again.

Sympathy Cards

 Posted by at 08:00 am
May 102018
 

Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
Welsh Sympathy Cards

-oOo-

Good morning everybody!

Last month I published a post about a sympathy card I’d made for a family in our neighbourhood and I said I’d have to make up a few cards ready for the sad times when such a card is needed.  Well a few days ago, over a period of a couple of days, I had a little cardmaking session and my makes included some sympathy cards.

So I thought I’d separate out the sympathy cards into a blog post of their own snd show you those today.

.

When I showed you the results of my latest screen printing the begining of this month I included a couple of floral wreaths printed in black, where the masking tape over the wording had come off when washing the mesh between colours and so I had printed them out with words I didn’t want in the centre.

Well the first thing I did was get my round Duo Dies and cut the centre out of the print, as well as cut the print itself as a circular panel.

I coloured just the leaves in green with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush Marker on one, and for the other I coloured the leaves using a green ProMarker and the flowers using the Sparkle Glitter pens.

Both are made on a 300 gsm white A5 card base and are layered with a white textured cardstock as well as using black cardstock for a layer and a strip over the white ribbon..

For this one I also used a piece of white ribbon (that came wrapped around some pillowcaces) on the card.

The greeting on the card above means A Word Of Comfort.  And on the card below  the wording Gyda Chydymdeimlad means With Sympathy.

The butterflies on this card were die cut using a free die that came on a tattered lace magazine and simply separated drom the rest of the cut.

After these two I went back to the same pack of crafting goodies from Hunkeydorey that I’d used for the Sympathy Card last month.

Both have a filigree frame and peel-off greetings.

This one has tge greeting Thinking About You and also has a matching insert with the sentiment With Sympathy on it.

This one simply has the greeting Gair o Gysur, which means a Word of Comfort on it.

But I’ve not added a greeting to the insert of this one yet.

.

I’ll do another post with the other cards in before long. Just want to make sure that the ones that are for a specific person have been received first.

Another Pack Of Cards

-oOo-

Time for another catchup showing you some more things I’ve made a while ago but hadn’t photographed and blogged.

 

Earlier this month I blogged a post about how I’d put together several packs of assorted cards to give to family members and friends as New Year gifts, but that two packs had gone undelivered because I landed up in the Bristol Eye Hospital the first weekend of the year rather than seeing the people who were to recrive the card packs.

In my earlier post – here – I showerd you one of the card packs. Today I’ve got the cards from the second pack to show you.

Once again the photos are at a bit of an angle because of glare.  I really will have to bet back to photographing in my usual location to get better photos, but still feel a bit wobbly to stand for long enoygh to photograph the batches of crafted items.

As you can see, like the last ones, I haven’t put any greetings on the cards. But I have included a batch of Welsh and English greetibgs so that the recipient can choose what language and occasion they want.  I don’t know if it is clear in the next photo, but I put double sided tape behind greetings panels which were not alreafy sticky so that they are ready to stick on.

.

Keep an eye out for a post showing the cards in the other undelivered pack before long.

Pack Of Cards

-oOo-

Time for a catchup to show you some more things I’ve made a while ago but hadn’t photographed and blogged.

Last Christmas I did make a lot of cards to send out to friends and family, as well as for two small orders I had. Most were made using Hunkydory kits to make it easier for me to batch make, even in bed, as well as some recycling of old cards. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of any of them.

As I wasn’t up to doing a lot of crafting hand made gifts I decided to make up small packs of cards as gifts as well.  Unfortunately I didn’t get enough done by Christmas, but did get them done by New Year to give as “calenig” (new year gift, usually money, but I sometimes give something else).  Those I made them for, that I saw over New Year, were given theirs, but there were two people, that I had planned to see the first Sunday of the year, who never got theirs because, if you’ve read one of my previous post – here – you will know I landed up in the Bristol Eye Hospital before then for an emergency eye opp.

Of course, the days and weeks following the opp I couldn’t drive and somehow the two undelivered packs got shifted and I forgot about them – until I found them last week while looking for something else.  I then decided that I might as well take some some quick photographs of them before getting them delivered to the recipients.

So, what I’ve got to show you today are the cards from one pack. Sorry the photos are not fantastic, but I had to take them at a slight angle because of light flare, probably because of taking them seated by the kitchen table under the room light, rather that in my usual spot.

The same card at an angle to try and show dimension.

.

As I don’t know whether the friend who’s going to receive this assorted pack will want to send them out in Welsh or English I’ve not put greetings on either inside or out. But I have included a pack of greetings in both language, most with some double sided tape already added.

.

Keep an eye out for a post showing the cards in the other undelivered pack before long.

You may enter the challenge with ONE entry per month. So why not consider joining in with us this month – go to the challenge blog and have a look at the rules and the inspiration created by my fellow Design Team members.

The theme for September is “Books and/or Paper“.  There are so many different directions you can go for this theme – perhaps you are into book folding, or perhaps you are into desiging your own background papers, or you may even want to make a card with books and papers, etc., on to give to a youngster heading off to a new school or college.  So many ideas to play with.  I can’t wait to see what everybody comes upwith this month.

Please join in and let us see your crafted creation.

.

CREATION:

This summer my father not only celebrated his 85th birthday, but he also had his autobiography published, so I decided that an Open Book Card would be a suitable birthday card for him this time. And, of course, an Open Book card is a card style that’s suitable for the DLD Challenge as well, so I killed two birds with one stone this time.

 

Dragons Lair Designs Item:

Equipment:

  • My Craft Studio Elite software
  • Tattered Lace Open Book Dies
  • Scissors
  • Joy Cutting and Embossing Machine

Consumables:

  • 250gsm Super Smooth white cardstock
  • Pinflair Glue Gel
  • Tonic Funky Glue
  • Matt Silver Cardstock

BookCard 01 01

Method:

I started off by taking several items from the DLD collection I’d chosen, together with a photo of my father when he was our town mayor, into the My Craft Studio software.  I played around with sizes and positions of the picture in a frame element from the collection, and also the greeting for the card.

Once I was happy with what I’d got I printed everything out and started cutting everything out.  I used one of the the smaller book shapes from the die set for the greetings, then drew around the outside of them onto white cardstock and cut them out to give a mat a slight bit bigger for each and sticking them together.  I used a series of the larger book dies for the main card shape.  I just cut out the frame and the “brad” elements with scissors.

I shaped all the “book page” layers over the side of a table before sticking them all together, and I used glue gel for dimension for adding the elements at the end.

This is a very dimensional card and I enclosed a wooden stand with it when I gave it.

BookCard 01 03I think that these pictures show how dimensional I made the card and embelishments.

(Thank you for reading this far. I hope you like what you’ve seen and read – You should find a box below where you can leave a comment if you feel like it, but due to the fact that, like many I’m sure, I’ve had some problems with Spam/advertising posts that are absolutely nothing to do with the content of my blog, I now moderate all comments before they go live. 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.
