Are you starting to think about Christmas cards yet?
It’s Donna here, and I’m just starting to get onto mine. The thing about Christmas cards for me is that I make a lot, so I can’t spend an hour or two on each card. I want them to be unique, but I have to work smart.
Here’s what I came up with…
This card uses the delicious ‘Sweet Christmas’ stamp set, and masks which I cut with the matching dies. This leaves a little white border around the images, which is a lovely design feature, and saves a lot of time that would be spend fussy cutting masks.
Next I coloured just the highlight areas on the card. This saves time, but mainly it stops the card from being too ‘busy’. I used Copic markers in the traditional Christmas colours of red and green, blending in the larger areas, and just adding single colours in the little spaces like this straw.
I hope this gives you some ideas for Christmas cards of your own. I look forward to sharing more cards with you very soon.
