Cardmaking: Christmas Cards

I've been missing in action, having fun working with Christmas cards (and others). Way too late in the year (and of course it'll never happen again), since I'd decided I wouldn't be making cards this year, and even had started sending store-bought cards.

Then I finally bought myself a Cuttlebug machine, after all other crafters have been using them for how many years? Some Nestabilities arrived next, as a result of online shopping from the U.S., and while learning to use my new-found treasures, I decided it wasn't too late to create for Christmas afterall!

These cards were created with About Art Accent stamps and backed with Peony Nestabilitie cut-outs. The Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder has been my favourite for backgrounds; it seems to mimic a snowy effect all so easily. Like all other Cuttlebug owners, yes, I totally love mine too.

... And then, paper napkins provided the basis for many cards similar to this one.
Happy Christmas greetings to all who visit my blog; I hope you'll stop by often in the New Year too. I love to share with you my photos of creativity, what's happening in the garden, and others when I can.


Note: You can find pictorial directions for making Christmas cards using Paper Napkins, in my latest Helium article here.
