Christmas cards done and dusted


Yes have finished my 103 Christmas cards, but as a little fed up with cream, gold and burgundy colours because of the wedding, I decided to go contemporary,...


And also to save time I made them in batches, so even though 103 were made they were divided into 4 different types of cards...


These were made using Marianne dies...



A cuttlebug embossing folder, which was one of the first I brought, some 8 years ago was used for these cards...



Spellbinder dies...



And finally I used some folded up docraft Christmas paper and Hunkydory Christmas sentiments, in fact all the 103 cards had Hunkydory sentiments, as they matched the colours of the cards just right...


Now for making my gift tags, oh and I've still got to write out the cards yet, lol...

Wow!!!! What a busy bee you have been, and have to say, the award for queen of cards goes to Maria!! Well done you!!! I adore the colours, so nice to break away from the usual red, gold and green for a change. The designs are wonderful Maria, just beautiful!!! Mr. Postie is going to be kept busy this year, lets hope he gives you a discount in postage, yikes!!
