Christmas Cards

I have finished this year’s Christmas cards! My intention was to make 18 cards with their own unique design and here they are:

1.       This one has acrylic paint in gold on muslin, die-cut embellishments and a metal embellishment from Bo Bunny.

2.       Die-cut, fuzzy-cut, a frame painted with gold acrylic paint, and some muslin.

3.       Fuzzy-cut flowers, muslin, twine and a metal Christmas tree (in green).

4.       Die-cut snowflakes and embossed black snowflakes.

5.       Gold mist, die-cut embellishments, a poinsettia (flower) and bells.

6.       Fuzzy-cut flowers, a stamp and some Distress Stickles.

7.        White gesso as “snow”, acrylic paint (splashed and on the die-cut embellishment), and some bells.

8.       Mist in green and gold, red pearls as “berries” and a metal snowflake.

9.       Mist, die-cut flower and branch, poinsettia and bells.

10.       Gold mist, die-cut flowers, poinsettia and a branch with “bling”.

11.       Gold mist, die-cut flowers and a branch, a stamp and bells.

12.      Embossed stripes on the background, gold mist, a metal decoration and a trim between the two “cards” in the centre.

13.      Splashed acrylic paint, die-cut branch and bells.

14.       Die-cut embellishments colored with gold acrylic paint, bells and a rhinestone on the star in the Christmas tree.

15.       A lot of poinsettias and bells.

16.       Gold mist, gold acrylic paint on die-cut embellishments, a stamp, bells, rhinestones and Distress Stickles in the Christmas tree.

17.       Fuzzy cut poinsettias, die-cut branch, muslin and bells.

18.       Trims, a metal decoration from Bo Bunny and some rhinestones.

  5. Va fina julkort du gjort! Jag är ju inget stort fan av vintagebilder direkt men de här var jättefina! Kul att du har kört samma stil/tema på dina julkort! Och de söta små rosetterna med minipinglorna är ju sååå söta!

    Min favvo... fanns ett par stycken som jag tyckte var lite extra fina men favoriten blir nog nr 7 ändå, precis som Chantal så gillar jag gesson bakom motivet.

    Önskar dig en riktigt GOD JUL!!!
