Easy cards on another hot day

Once the sun had gone off the summerhouse and there was some shade and breeze through the windows, I took some crafting up there - and my iPad so I could watch some TV.

I didn't feel like doing much, so I took the easy option. I bought a couple of packs of Christmas card blanks in Hobbycraft sale earlier in the year - all I needed to add was some papers inside. I used papers from Echo park 'winter wishes'.

Here's a set of four cards:

The hardest thing with these cards is trying not to bend any of the delicate cut outs ... you can see that I have cut away a tree on one of the cards because it got a bit damaged - hope no one will realise that there should be a tree there.

I found up some silver peel offs that I've had for years and years, so I used them for the greetings.

These are for:

Facebook A card a day
Fab 'n' funky 180: make a set
Creative creations 15: anything goes
Bizzy Becs July: anything goes
Sentimental Sundays 164: Christmas in July
Cards for men 15: Christmas in July (think these are suitable for men)
