Christmas Cards Part 1

I hope you are all enjoying your Christmas preparations and are not panicking too much.
I did say I would show some more of the Christmas projects and cards I have made recently and seeing as now that all my cards have been mailed I am showing some of those cards.
I made a few different types of cards. These are some of the 'mixed media' ones.

All of these cards have been made using a mix of papers including Maja Design, Dovecraft and Paper Studio. I've used texture paste and paint to 'enhance' some of them. These cards all fit in 6" x 6" (15 x 15 cm) envelopes - just.

The vintage images were sourced from the internet. I printed them in colour and again in a more muted version.

I cut the die-cuts mostly in white and used Distress Inks to colour or shade them. I also painted some of them with Glamour Dust and added extra glitter.
The majority of the Christmas cards I made this year are this style and I really enjoyed making them. I have more to show so will be back in a few days with another batch.
I'm off to teach my last class for this year today. The ladies - and some men - are going out to lunch afterwards to celebrate. I hope you all have time to do something fun during this busy time.
