Sooooo, when I was scrabbling round looking for lilac backing papers yesterday, I'm almost ashamed to say I stumbled across yet another 'forgotten' box with some Kan Ban Christmas kits in - a couple of them totally unused as yet. What I like about this particular kit is that it's pretty easy to select a sheet of decoupage (today's big word?) and some backing card to co-ordinate and whip up half a dozen cards on a little production line - a production line is a sure sign of panic here :( There are poinsettias, chandeliers and reindeer in combinations of ruby/red and a sort of pink colour, along with teal. I made six cards practically the same using one of the sets of reindeer and here's one of them:
- DL card stock
- Kan Ban's 'Elegance' Christmas toppers and card kit - bought from QVC just after last Christmas, even the cream card that I stuck the reindeer onto (using 3-D foam for even more dimension) came with the kit
- red mirri card from stash
- Josy Rose nail heads
Bingo - six more for the box :)
I've just remembered that St Luke's Hospice are having a Christmas Fayre next weekend so I guess I'll have to put my thinking cap on and come up with something other than mass produced cards to pop in the post to them ASAP. Hey, ho - no rest for the wicked! But there again, at the North Pole it's probably 'HO, ho - no rest for Santa' right now :)) Oooer, that reminds me ages since we watched the 'Polar Express', almost a year at least - a must in the run-up to Christmas!
