Final Christmas Cards for 2011

Hi Everyone,

Yes I know – the big red suit has flown by already – however, I didn’t get a chance to post these lovely last minute Christmas cards that I made and I really think they deserve to be shared.


I have used all the remaining leftover bits to create another patchwork background, added a lovely sentiment that was free to use for a challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog but I didn’t get a chance at the time to do it.

It went perfectly with these lovely wooden silver hearts that were given to me last year and I topped the hearts with a bit of a Kaiser Rub-On from one of the Christmas sheets. Just a little holly, which added that Christmas feel to them.

I’ve used Spellbinders Nestabilities – Labels 4 to show off the sentiment and a lovely big silver Ribbon that was in my stash.
They turned out beautifully and made a great splash with those who received them.

I’ll share them at the following challenges:-

Thanks for putting up with just one more Christmas Card post and I hope you all are having a wonderful Holiday and gearing up for a creative and fun 2012 – I know I am!

Ciao for now Smile

Your cards are lovely! I love the big bows, and making the patchwork quilt type cards is a great way to use up small pieces of paper! Thanks so much for joining us this time at Friendship's Garden, and we hope to see you back again really soon! Happy New Year! Becky
