They’re done at last, I wasn’t going to do batch cards this year but that’s what I’ve ended up doing with most of my Christmas cards. Next year I intend to make them as I go along and try and get some variation, I think I’m trying to convince myself here, we’ll see. lol
The backing paper for these cards is a digital image from Pink Petticoat – Large Snowflakes. I used the gold and the silver snowflakes as the background and I have images of various bits of sheet music, I can’t remember where I got them from I’ve had them in my digi stash for ages. I use Photoshop Elements to do my digi stuff like scrapbooking, card making, labels and tags, well lots of things really, so I used the ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ music and layered it on top of the snowflakes, giving it a drop shadow. I had sized the background to fit an A5 card front making it easier to cut out and mount on to mirri card. For the toppers I have used the Santa from the November Project Club stamp set from Dimension Fourth. I stamped him in various coloured inks, coloured him in using some watercolour pencils, others I used ProMarkers, but all are glittered around the cape, around his hat and not to forget his bobble. I finished off with a gold or silver snowflake. I did intend to do other designs for this years Christmas cards but really got carried away with these. The photo isn't very good, I'd lost the daylight by the time I'd remembered to take it but I think you get the idea.
