4 x 4 cards
In one of those moments when I thought I would use lots of them, I bought some small cards (envies included) thinking that I would use them to make up packs of 5 Christmas cards, but I confess that up until now I've had no enthusiasm for using them, preferring to work with a bigger surface.
However, I saw the sketch for Fat-tastic Tuesday 9: should have gnome and I thought I should use some of those cards. This is the sketch:
When I first saw the sketch I thought that I would never get all of that on to such a small surface, but, with a bit of tweaking that I hope is allowed, I managed to make five cards.
The pictures of the cats are decoupaged - I bough these years ago (another of those moments!) and thought it was about time they were used. I used scraps of silver mirror card to mount them. The bling gems were from Poundland, silver glitter border from Paper Cellar and the red and white snowflakes from Hobbycraft (no, I've never seen any red and white snowflakes either ... but I think anything is allowed when being creative!).
There are two of one cat and three of the other (didn't have five all the same):
A closer look at one of each:
Some of the silver looks a bit gold because of the flash, but the backing of the images are definitely all silver mirror.
