I really haven't shared many crafty projects since moving to Australia. I have really only made cards (quite a lot, in actual fact) but it all takes time, uploading and editing photos and then blogging. I am determined to do better in 2014 - I think it's all a matter of organisation, I suppose.
Well, I am finally taking an opportunity to share one of the few special cards I made this Christmas.
Mum's neighbour Jenny very generously donated some Christmas supplies, and amongst them was this lovely robust A4 red card. So that formed the card base.
Jenny has kindly lent me her Cuttlebug on a couple of occasions, so I borrowed her Spellbinders dies to cut some basic shapes, most of which went to make labels for Christmas presents for the family.
The lace was in an assorted bag of ribbon which has been gathered at Mum's for quite a few years. I cut the gathered binding off the top so it sat nice and flatly.
Cardinal Red A4 card
Kaisercraft St Nicholas Sticker Sheet
Dotted olive green Swiss Bazzill
The back of a red and white Christmas snowflake envelope for the deckle layer of the oval
October Afternoon Travel Girl journal card - (cream patterned paper on oval)
Glitz teeny Alphabet Stickers - red
Considering my dearth of craft supplies, I am really pleased with how this card turned out, and I think the recipients were too. I see the new 52 card challenge has commenced at UK Scrappers, so I look forward to joining in again this year, as much as I can .....
