More Christmas cards

Hello sweet peeps,

It is indeed that time of the year when there is much happening... Christmas time seems to be here sooner than I thought which is a blessing I guess. 

I have been selling quite a few cards of late. I got an order of 12 cards for Christmas and prior to that one kind lady bought 20 cards from me. For the UN day at school, the charity that my daughter supports (Kids for Cambodia) sold 12 cards. So that is quite a decent number and to add to that I had people over and they bought six cards and I have an order for another five. Wow, so let me count how much that makes 55 cards and I am quite happy with that. 

Down below is a card which was part of the order. The ornament has been diecut with shiny metallic paper and I have layered foil under it. The foil came from a Christmas cracker so it is partially recycled. It was rather thin and the fact that it stayed intact helped me give it more body. The sentiment has been diecut from a yoghurt lid. The border embossing folder left a mark so I resorted to silver tape to cover it up. It looks far prettier in real life. The silver cord and little rhinestone gave a graceful finishing touch. 

Happy crafting,
