More to show....













I've been making some more Christmas cards (well, it has to be done...) Just going to show a couple here for now. The black and white one was made with left over bits from a challenge to make a card using black and white, with ribbon only adding any other colour. Hared than it sounds as I had to fight against adding a brad, or a flower etc! I can't count this card though as the backing paper, stars and pots add too much in the way of "extras"


Another card made for a commission, this one an egagement card. There is no blue on it despite how it looks - the light must have caught on the silver edge as I was taking the photo! I had loads of bother with this - it started off with a fuchsia rather than dark red colour on the B&W baackground but no matter how much stuff I got out I couldn't find the right embellishments to work with it. Went back to my favourite dark red and hey presto!

Love the cards.
Coincidentally I had suggested to one of my daughters that she uses the triangular christmas tree idea this year, which appealed to her. So now I can show her yours, for inspiration, as the modern colours may appeal to her, as we were probably thinking along traditional colours to begin with
