I love Christmas, but like to keep it firmly in December, where it belongs. Since I started teaching classes, I’ve had to begin my Christmas card planning a little bit earlier. I was finding it difficult to come up with designs, when we were looking forward to carving pumpkins and watching fireworks.
I got over it by adapting a previous design into a more seasonal version. This was a Thank you card I made some time ago. I took a different flower from the set and switched the soft vintage colours for a more traditional red, gold and green.
The final touch was the ‘merry’ stamped tag, hanging from the candy striped twine. I made a little gift box/treat holder to match. It’s very easy to make from half a sheet of A4 cardstock and I’ll share the instructions on Saturday. The first of three Christmas themed tutorials for December. I hope you’ll find them useful.
