My card making Craft Room is officially closed for Christmas, I made a couple of DT cards and made the decision since I was suffering from Sinusitis and got so stressed over last minute Christmas cards, I needed a break.
I finally finished my Not so Ugly Sweater Cal which I enjoyed receiving a part of the pattern each week till it was finished and unfortunately mine finished on the small size. Had to add some more candy stripes and another cross stitch band. I also personalised it with the year.
It was all made with Stylecraft Special DK on a 3 1/2 hook, the colours are Lincoln, Cypress, Lipstick and Cream.
Below are the cards I made and was disappointed in, don't worry they didn't go in the bin I had no choice but to send them.
I wanted to use the glitter card to see how the snowman looked, he turned out fine but I do wish the card wasn't so plain.
Another card I felt I cheated on but the two snowflake die from Simon says Stamp that was release this year worked better together than using a large one already in your collection. You can see in the example below thank goodness you never can have enough snowflakes.
I don't particularly like the yellow star a nice white one would've have been better but I had already made the star bauble and I couldn't afford to bin it.
I made the one above months ago and then I saw that a Christmas Card Class had made one similar so even though I made it weeks before the class I felt it wasn't my idea especially as theirs was better than mine. I cut out a circle mask to blend the colour in so it lacked spontaneous colour.
I felt I cheated here using it the same dies with penguins and then using a snowflake die.
If I don't get onto the PC I want to wish everyone a
Merry New Year.
If you don't celebrate Christmas I hope you get time to spend with your families.
