Oh boy, did I get a fright yesterday - I checked our Christmas Card list and I'm still WAY short of the target :( We've both moved around a bit so have friends and relatives all over the place and I really don't want to fall back on shop bought cards so am soldiering on.
By a stroke of luck (or forward planning which I'd completely forgotten about!) I found a box of KanBan goodies from QVC (Christmas backing paper/card, die cuts and sentiments) tucked right on a high shelf in my crafty room cupboards. Whew! They still need to be made but I had a quick go yesterday and here are some of the results.
I got two cards from the backing card, the Santa toppers are almost the same and the poinsettias are Papermania 'A Silent Night'. The flowers and leaves came in layers which I just assembled with small gold brads and sprayed with Tattered Angels Pearl Glimmer Mist - it doesn't show up so well in the photo but it's really lovely for a subtle shimmer.
This card..........blurry photo, sorry....... (I managed two from one lush turquoise/silver A4 sheet again) was just layered using foam pads and then a couple of toning snowflakes added. The beauty of this KanBan set is that so much of it goes together in 'themes'.
That makes another five done.......in between I have been working on other cards but these KanBan ones are just so quick they could well save my bacon! And there's still lots of cards I can get out of the box - thank goodness!!!
And as for my desk, don't even ASK how that looks! In fact, stuff is also strewn all over our bed - purely so I can mix and match stuff you understand!
