Three more Christmas cards made.

Everyone who seen my handmade cards loves the way I've used paint sample cards as above.  So far I've only made stylised Xmas trees, but I've seen other shapes on Pinterest, and hope to made some more cards using different Xmas icons.
The button card at the top of this page is the first one I've made using buttons.  Again, I have sourced Pinterest for ideas, and this was a quick easy design to start off my button cards!

Hand made Christmas cards

This year I am in a Xmas card exchange on a forum. In fact, it was my idea to have the exchange as I knew there were quite a few members who loved making cards, and I thought it would be fun for them all to swap with each other. I got so enthused, I looked up the card ideas I'd been saving on my Pinterest account, and made these cards all in one afternoon! Some of my friends said they were amazed at how quick I was, but really, once you have all the bits and pieces on a table in front of you, it doesn't take long to make up a few cards. I don't spend a lot of money on expensive cardmaking equipment; I'd rather recycle things like old sheet music, paint sample cards, and cutting up old Xmas cards. Then with some card stock and glitter glue - away I went!
