My first small batch of Christmas cards. I’m not sure how many I’ll make this year — I must sit down and work out how many I really need — but I think it will have to be fewer than I made last year. Either that or I need to get them all finished well before December. The last minute rush to get everything done in time last year completely killed my mojo…
This design is sort of inspired by all the snow globe imagery you inevitably see when browsing Christmas card ideas, but rather than go out and buy a specific die, I improvised.
I die-cut a circle from black card and the town scene from grey card. Then I die-cut the town scene again out of the lower third of the black circle so that the two pieces could be inlaid together on the card front.
The sentiment was stamped across the bottom, lots of snowy dots were added across the black, and a small blob of gold glitter added a touch of shine to the largest window.
The design is simple enough that I made a set of six.
