When it's that time of year make sure the Christmas cards you send stand out from the rest.
It's never too early to start making your cards for this special time of the year... and nothing is better than a handmade one
I like to start round about October to avoid the panic as the season gets closer.
If you have a big family circle or lots of friends then you may need to get busy early.
And even more so if you make lots of cards for charities or to sell at craft fairs which are always popular at this time of year.
And the more you need to make the more simple they need to be.
This simple design is made by trimming some silver Mirror card into triangles and adding them to some Christmas text paper
These cards are made from a digital download that I bought, and they are so trendy.
Try the bright, funky colour schemes yourself.
Or the gentle pastels that are always so pleasing...for any occasion.
And if you want to add the appearance of snow to your Christmas Card then take a look at Flower Soft.
There are always lots of pretty papers around to choose from that you will be spoilt for choice.
The traditional reds and greens, are always a safe bet for making lovely cards.
But don't limit yourself to just these colours.
Be adventurous and see what you can create, because pastel colours also offer a really elegant look to your creations
Let the Colour Wheel help you pick out the schemes that you like, before you start cutting up your papers.
I added some Versamark to one side of the folder and then added the card.
Embossed it in my machine and then sprinkled clear embossing powder oto the Versmark area and heated the powder until it melted.
Very easy to do and such a lovely effect
I used the same folder here and then by adding some matching ribbon to a darker colour scheme, it rings the changes and make the card look completely different.
The trees on the toppers page are very easy to do, and yet have a modern feel to them.
They are suitable to send to any age group, male or female and would look good on any bodies mantelshelf.
Just a bit of added glitter around the tree trunks makes all the difference.
Christmas is magic, make your cards magical too.
