Simple Christmas Card

12 Comments

Hi bloggies!

I should be doing my bookwork … but am just stealing a few minutes (or more) to post one of the ‘bulk’ cards I have made for Christmas this year. I must admit … doing Q&E cards felt like I was returning to my card making ‘roots’. And … I think it is a good thing. I always overthink my cards … so it was good to just do simple and remind myself that “less is more”!

I bought some fabulous SU! Christmas paper this year called “Snow Festival”. I love the colour combo & sweet designs … and they were just what I needed as inspiration for my cards this year.

I can’t take credit for this design. Yes … I was in a hurry … and couldn’t rely on my tired, rusty brain! 😉 So … I did what all good card makers do … and found inspiration from the world wide web! 😀 Now … a bit of a puzzle. I have this card saved in my “to CASE” file as “Mel Sharp 6Jun11” … but … now that I am searching for the link to share with you … I can’t find this card anywhere on Mel’s blog!? HHHmmm … perhaps I named the file incorrectly??? I would love to share the correct link … and give the appropriate acknowledgement … but … sadly I am not sure now where I found it. 😦 Please let me know if this is your creation. I did some monochrome cards in this design … the original was done as a monochrome. Isn’t the paper lovely!? 🙂

ADDED TUES: Yay! I have the link … courtesy of Mel (creator) & my blog bestie Lynda! Thanks girls for responding! I did have it filed wrongly … should have been 6Aug11!

Take care … I really need to stop procrastinating and get to my bookwork! It is nice I can have the cricket on to keep me company! 😀

I tried so hard to find it on your blog … searched via “Christmas Classics”, “June 2011”, “Christmas Cards” … and still couldn’t find it. BUT … I did see lotsa lovely eye candy in my searches!!! I will pop the link into the post … thanks for your help! BTW … just added you to my reader, too! Hugs xxx

  3. They’re lovely. Wish I’d bought that DSP. I got the Festival of Prints pack and am not impressed at all. Not Christmassy, not even very nice 😦

    • Giggle … I would love to do that … but with only 3 months to go to get the incentive trip … I imagine it is a little late! (I am helping another SU! friend get to incentive … so perhaps you will get to meet her?) Thanks for the lovely comment about my profile pic. It was taken at Sheree’s hen’s night about 2 weeks ago!
