My Christmas cards...sorted!

Evening peeps....
I started doing some Christmas cards in August and like a lot of you I did them for challenges and with new stamps but they were all one offs and very involved and and while they were great to go in my stock to sell at Craft fairs, the 100 or so that I had to make to send out were still looming over me and I hadn't found my groove with it! But after finding a pack of handmade cream paper I got to work with the images from Wild Rose Studio and now I have made a start!

The solution really is to keep it simple so I printed off some of the images and coloured them in with my promarkers...chalked the edges with a warm golden glow then added lots of glitter and layered them on coloured card before attaching them to the thick cream handmade paper.

The Angels and fairies are just so pretty.

The finishing touch is a colour matched flower with ribbon and the greeting.

I'm entering these into Danni's 'Flutter by Wednesday challenge' which is to use fairies or butterflies on your cards.
I'm looking forward to making the reindeer and mouse now.
Hope you have had a nice day today ...Thanks for dropping by!
