Stocking friends


This gate fold card is my third design creation for Christmas cards all year round December, where the theme is 'Christmas stockings'. The background card used on the fronts is from an old Kanban kit and the inside card and other elements are from the Hunkydory 'stocking friends' from the Snowy Days kit.

Simply Christmas stockings


My second design contribution for Christmas cards all year round December: Christmas stockings is a set of five very simple cards using images from Lili of the valley festive foliage art pad. The images have been layered on to green mirror card before matting on to the card blanks with the addition of peel off greetings (try to use these up from years ago):

Christmas cards all year round December: Christmas stockings


It's nearly time to hang up those stockings for Santa to fill them - that's of you've been good enough - lol! The December challenge on Christmas cards all year  round is all about Christmas stockings. This is my first design card, using elements from Hunkydory Classic Christmas 'Christmas stockings' set. I've used one of the remaining offcuts of the lovely glittery holly ribbon that I bought some time ago - it will be a shame when this has all gone (think I have just one piece left).

Oh Christmas tree


The theme for this fortnight's challenge for the Christmas Card Club is 'oh Christmas tree'. I've made five clean and simple cards using pictures from Art pad 14: festive foliage by Lili of the Valley. These were mounted on to offcuts of red mirror card, matted on to deep green 7 x 5 card blanks. The greetings are peel off stickers (still trying to use up some that I had years ago).
