Christmas Card Challenge #2
This challenge theme was Christmas Baking, but I don't have a single thing on that theme at all, so fortunately,this year it also allows us to make a card on any theme.
I recently bought a new Sweet Poppy stencil, Damask Baubles, and had been making up some card fronts using stencil paste and laminating with foil. So my theme this month is Baubles.😁
I made a total of 21 in all, 9 on white card, and 12 on black. Story of my crafting, and why I end up with so many UFO's- I can't stop at one or two. While I've got the stuff out, I end up making loads.
I'm just showing a few here, I'll do a blog post on them all later today, or tomorrow. Photos don't really do them justice, the sparkle is gorgeous, and changes as the light catches them.
Some were done using one colour of foil, others I used a separate colour for the bow & chain- that was a real test of patience, lol.
I finished them by matting onto an opposite colour A5 card base, and adding the greeting use small peel offs.
Now I just need to do inserts, and they'll be good to go.
