Beat the Christmas Rush

Christmas card time again - how are yours coming along?

Here are mine for this month - again very quick and simple which is what you need when you have to make a lot.



I've made my cards from the off cuts of the Order of Services I am making for Adam and Lucy's wedding.  I folded a piece of A4 card in half then cut off the top to make it square and I was left with a  bit of folded card which I was going to throw away.  They measure about 5.75" x 2.5".

These are the 5 I made.  Although you can't see very well, I used glossy card for the turquoise background, swiping a Blending Blox shades of turquoise ink pad across to get an even coverage then spritzed with water to give it a speckled look.  The houses and trees are a Memory Box die cut with a touch of glitter glue added.
