Now it's approaching Christmas and time to make my cards as I have for the last few years. Often I'll use stencils for this process :
This year I have every intention of making another major batch, but for now, I have just made about 10 cards for some immediate giving, and more will follow once I finish work on Friday. I started with some gelli-printed papers from a recent session.Thought purple would be lovely with gold for Christmas. Tore these sheets up and applied to cardstock (sorry no step-by-step photos), then added a lovely tree stamp which I embossed, before adding a few touches of gold stamping, christmas washi tape, and purple stitch to finish. This was the first prototype
And then I went on to create variations

Starting to feel festive and looking forward to finding out what will inspire me for the next batch.
Hope you are finding time to create something that makes you happy.
