November cardmaking - Christmas and all occasion
I had a few girls in for a cardmaking session last night and here a few examples of our first card. I made quite a few kits so everyone could choose what they wanted to make and I also made all occasion kits as well as Christmas kits. It was fun that these kits are all a bit different because they have different decorative paper as well as images.
I started with layering a piece of decorative paper over my card front and adding a piece of ribbon/seam binding that runs the length of the card with the ends adhered to the inside of the card using double sided tape. I watercoloured my images (poinsettia & kite - Birds Cards, trees - Black Berry Jelly) except for the first one which is a circle punched from an old greeting card. The colours were perfect with that background. I layered my images directly onto a scallop circle for two of them, the other two have several layers of circles before I glued them to the scalloped circle. I adhered the scallop circle element to my layered card front over the ribbon using 3D foam tape.
I am glad to have a few extra kits to make up. It should give me enough Christmas cards for this year and also a few all occasion cards for gift giving.
