I've been looking for some different (and quick) ways to make some extra Christmas cards this year and remembered that I had saved some of last year's cards that I received to 'do something with' - like you do - then don't - if you know what I mean lol
So I spent a day or two making new cards out of some of the lovely cards I received last year. I realise now that I should have taken before and fter photos but I can't do much about that now!
Here is one that I made with the challenge at
The theme is
The original card was actually just the black and white background with the trees and 'Winter Wishes' sentiment - quite pretty and sparkly but it could have been so much more..... see below for what I did.....
The challenge at MAWTT still has a week to run so you have plenty of time to enter your Winter Animals cards. Sorry to Wendy, our lovely host Jackie and my teamies that I'm a week late! I had a horrible ear infection last week and got totally mixed up about the challenge week - and I got no crafting or blogging done at all - thankfully after antibiotic, hydracortisone and seroid ear drops (7 times a day - there just wasn't enough hours in the day!!) I'm on the mend
Here's what I did....
I made a frame with black card using Sue Wilson pierced square dies
Mounted that onto champagne coloured satin card
I then cut a new moon and Stag with a Crafters Companion die using a thin gold craft metal that I got from a Create and Craft sale day a few weeks back - I love this it has a fabulous finish
and that - as they say - is that. It looks so much nicer than the original card and I was quite pleasd with the result - making a card like this was definitely a bit of a novelty! - I've made a few more now - series to be continued .......
Hope you'll join in with our challenge at MAWTT
