Ho Ho Ho


I normally make some Christmas cards to give to some of my workmates, so this is batch #1.
I've used my MFT Santa set and made them 3 3/4" square to fit some mini envelopes that I found in my stash ... absolutely no idea where they came from!  It's too boring for words to make any card the same as the last, so I usually change some of the details on each card.

Coloured with watercolour pencils.  Clear gloss and glitter added to Santa's hat.  Misc coloured sequins and silver stars from stash.  Doodled border.

These are based on the sketch at CAS Colours and Sketches #147
Share Joy #8 - keep it clean and simple
Polkadoodles #43 - sparkle, bling or glitter

  2. fabulous cards Lynne! Like you, I never like to make 2 cards the same, so find a nice design for 'batch' cards like Christmas ones. And these are fantastic design!

  12. I'm with you, I never make two cards the same. We don't normally swap cards at work as there are too many of us but your colleagues are in for a treat! Thanks for joining us at CC&S this week. Stef x

  15. I have a hard time making multiples of cards, too. I force myself to do it with Christmas cards because I have to make so many. These mini cards are great, and I'm certain your co-workers will appreciate them.

  16. Three fabulous fun Christmas cards. Love the santa images, and the variations. I agree about doing them the same being boring.

    Thanks for sharing in our T for Two challenge.
