I made this real quickly for a male cousin of my husband’s, whose birthday is this week. Embossed on to brown card and used Treasure Gold for metal look. Used Forever Friends paper by Papermania for background and die cut a tag out of it. Message is from my stash.
I used Brusho Inks on water colour paper and then die cut the balloons and Message with them. I like the look!
Ok, I confess, I had embossed this paper with a leaf pattern and really liked it but didn’t know what to do with it. So I added these die cuts and words and leaves….hope it works for an unusual Xmas card….?!
I used Xcut build a scene house dies, Xcut word die and Xcut holly border dies.
Again, Xcut dies, these men’s suits are so cute, and take me back to my childhood of dressing up my Bunty cut out clothes! These cards are unadorned, but I may try and make an easel card with more space for embellishments. I used Mod Podge on the black lapels and pockets and pipe, and they came up like leather, so looked great!
Well February is here already! I haven’t lost my urge to make Xmas cards yet, so here’s another one! Some of the cards I received this Xmas were so lovely I just had to up cycle them! Here’s one that was formerly a concertina card. I call it Christmas in the City.
