Should really get started on next year’s Christmas cards now to avoid the stress, but at the moment, just the thought of Christmas cards makes me a bit sick…, LOLsignature

xmascard10bFor some texture, I added a piece of Maya Road burlap trim underneath the flowers and I used lots of  snow-tex and further shabbied it up with some angelhair. The seambinding is one of the seasonal ones; Autumn Leaves.

2 x Male

Only a few days left now until we turn page to 2015. I figured I better post the cards I’ve made over the last month before the new year is here. :-) This year was a race against time, like it is every year with the Christmas cards, but the worst so far. On Dec, 13th I still had 13 cards left to make, more than I had made throughout this year. :oops: Hence why I haven’t blogged them yet. Before getting on with the Christmas cards though, I made two male cards. Woaaaahhhhh male cards not exactly my favourites to make, but this is how they turned out: Elvis1 copy_miniThe 1st one is a 50th Birthday Card; I used the backside of the XVI paper, and also the clocks from the front. The Elvis image from Kort & Godt. Elvis2copy_miniThe second card is a “Get Well Soon” card: _getwell_miniAlso here the papers are from Maja Design; this time from the “By the Sea” collection. The oldsmobile can also be found on KOG’s male vintage image sheets; the smaller images are from the Memories sheet by Maja Design. PhotoGrid_1418665670464_mini BIRTHDAY CARD
