Before I begin, I apologise for the photo (it's slightly out of focus) and I hope you all had a great Christmas and are now looking forward to the New Year. I don't normally post Christmas cards because all the cards that I make at this time of year are for my workshops and then they go to the people on my Christmas card list. My last workshop was on 19th December this year so I've only just sent my last batch of cards (naughty, naughty me!)
I had a commission before Christmas to make three cards- for a weightlifter, domestic goddess and a high-maintenance girlfriend! You can probably guess who the card above was for. I reckoned that high maintenace girlfriends LOVE, nay DEMAND presents, so I created a present stack with a couple of gifts on show. The card base is an A4 and the papers are from Creative Cardmaking magazine. The boxes were created from different types of gold card, embossed and decorated with ribbon bows. I cut a handbag from red glittercard with a gold handle and a gold glittery shoe with red floral embellishment. 'Merry Christmas' & 'Stacey' were cut from gold glittercard and adhered to the card with foam pads. A trio of punched red, glittery stars completes the card.
Boxes- George & Basic Shapes
Shoe- Forever Young
Merry Christmas- Wild Card (RDS on)
Stacey- Winter Woodland
I'll be back soon with another of the trio of cards
Thanks for looking!
