Tee, hee - I bet many folk are totally fed up of Christmas cards by now, but needs must when the devil drives and I'm really going to try and stick to making 12 Christmas cards a month through January to November (which would be 132 of course). It was such a help this Christmas just gone, even though the last minute panics were just transferred to other things :)
Some of the cards will be 'batch bakes' but I do want to still join in with my favourite year round Christmas challenges - and this card is for Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenge where it's 'Anything goes' this week - and also for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra where it's always 'Anything goes':
- 6" x 6" square cream card blank - tent style
- the image from a 2013 Christmas card, carefully trimmed/fussy cut - I'm already eyeing up the shop bought ones we received this Christmas!
- a main frame of red mirri card to pick up the red foiled frame around the poinsettia image, topped with a piece of designer paper from the My Mind's Eye 'All is bright' paper pad
- the sentiment was from the same upcycled card, trimmed down into a pennant and then two Josy Rose nail heads added as 'faux fasteners'
Of course there's also Rudolph Day on the 25th of the month and Merry Monday every week so that (quick count up) could cover at least nine cards a month if I don't double up.
