Good morning crafty friends! I’m at home today carrying on with my preparations for Sundays Docrafts demonstration. I have lots of ideas spinning around my head and I need to try and get them all organised into actual cards ready to demonstrate!
Before I crack on I thought I would share another couple of makes that I’m taking with me on the day….
This first one is a mixture of the fabulous new ranges Little Red Robin and First Noel. I kept the colours very traditional for this and inked all the edges in chocolate and orange ink pads to add a warmth. I used the First Noël Mini Decoupage pack for the main image in the corner, it was really quick an easy to build up and adds a great focal point and I think it makes a nice contrast to the intricate robin image.
My second card is made using mainly elements from the latest Christmas Goody bag and it’s a mixture of First Noel, Country Companions Winter Wishes and Spots and Stripes Jewels. I’ve just lightly inked the edges of this one and used Kraft card which I think enhances the traditional Christmas colours really well.
It’s been a real challenge making fairly simple cards that are effective but I think I’m starting to get the hang of it….
Best I get on with some more…..please come and visit me if you can on Sunday at Busy Bee Garden Centre, Ryde, Isle of Wight between 10 and 4, it would be fabulous to see as many fellow crafters and friends as possible!
