It's been too long since I posted some cards, so I thought I'd better get posting! Mandy and I spent part of the afternoon on Sunday making a few Christmas cards. These are the ones we finished.
This is Mandy's card. I just love it! It seems like a simple card, but actually, doing the cords and bows are quite time consuming and very fiddly! It's very sparkly in real life! :) I thought the completed card was just adorable!
This is one of mine. I've seen button trees a number of times, but this one has pearls and bling added as well. The snowflake is all glittery, but it doesn't come through in the photo so well. I got the idea from the 'Bling Christmas tree' on the Hero Arts Site created by Shari Carroll- there's an instructional video, check it out!
This one is also mine. It was too simple to put together for words! It's one of Bo Bunny's papers...whose Christmas papers I really love!! All I did was cut out the tree, trim it down with my scallop scissors, and layered them...just a little crooked, because I like doing something different once in a while. I'm not sold on the sentiment cloud, but, oh well....someone might like it!
It looks like I'm ending the post here...I was hoping to add some more cards, but I started up my cutter to do up some socks and mittens and trees (oh my!), but I'm having trouble getting it to work. I think the problem may be with SCAL because I've reloaded the drivers, the computer recognizes it as there, but SCAL doesn't.
Good thing there's a couple of technicians in the family...hopefully I can take them away from their busy schedules to help me out!
