I know it’s too early to think about Christmas but I want to make a lot of cards this year and so have given myself the aim of making a few each month. I hate to rush making cards so this way I get to play and experiment and make up lots of cards to then pick from nearer to the time.
I love making easel cards and this was good fun to make but I think the dark winter scene clashes with the pale whites of the two girls so I am unsure if this card will ever be used.
I may end up finding a way to save it by adding something, i hope i can at least save the Christmas trees as the fussy cutting took me a long time. It’s a good job I started making Christmas cards early as neither of these cards turned out how I wanted.
The second card again has a composition that clashes, the modern stamp doesn’t work against the images. This card may be easier to find a fix for however as I could cover the stamped area.
My photos haven’t really taken very well but the card used for the mat on the sentiment is a pale green not blue as it looks on my screen. I think a darker green would have been more festive so I may need to take more time on my cards so I am not so dissapointed with them.
It feels very strange to be making these cards now but hopefully I will end up with a good amount of cards to send to all my loved ones without any stressful crafting in December.
