Sorry - Yet More Christmas!

I know I'm probably over burdening you with all my Christmas cards, but it is such a good feeling getting them all made! Less than 15 to go to my target of 100! And I bet I end up adding to my target, so don't be surprised if it shoots up to 150 - there are still a number of months left to mid November!!

These were made using a digi stamp set that I bought from Tiddly Inks especially for the current challenge which is:

Inch My Way Along (Mini Cards)

I printed the 4 designs as the block digi so that I could make 4 cards from a sheet of A4 card. So they are approx 75cm wide and 125cm tall. I've coloured them all with Promarkers and followed the current Sketch and Stash challenge too.

You can see the strips of glitter glue as per the sketch (pretty pleased with how straight these are despite a few glasses of vino!) and I've attempted to co-ordinate the ribbon with the picture colours. I should have done it the other way around!

The images have been added with foam pads underneath so they stand proud a little. Oh, and I've doodled a black line around the edge of the card. I really do like these and I get asked for quite a few titchy cards in the run up to Christmas so I think I'll be making more of these!

I'd also like to enter the following challenges:

Christmas Card Challenges: Glitter
Challenge Up Your Life: No Patterned Paper
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Anything Goes option
Bah Humbug: Something New (digi images and glitter glue in a straight line after wine!)

  • Image: Tiddly Inks, coloured with Promarkers
  • Everything else: My stash
