Christmas card

Hope you all had a good Hertitage Day Holiday yesterday! It was also National Braai Day, so we barbequed in the cool, wet weather. I also managed to finish my 21 "Boys" ATC's and will start on my next swap project tomorrow. Making up 30 Crafty Christmas gifts for our Advent swap and preparing for World Card Making Day.

More Christmas ideas... I participated in a Christmas in July ATC swap and I had a whole lot of leftover ATC's, this was really handy to quickly make up a batch of Christmas cards. This gorgeous stamp is a PSX one which I stamped in black on white card and glitter glued some elements. Sponged around the edges with black and mounted the image onto a silver layer. This was then matted onto the red ATC card that was also sponged with black and stamped with 'deck the halls' from a clear Memory box set. The ATC's were mounted onto different cuttlebugged backgrounds and then onto the folded black cardstock. As you have probably noticed by now I love using red for Christmas cards and I find the red, black and white combo very elegant.
Have a happy Friday and then it is weekend!

More gorgeous Christmas cards. Love these. They look so simple to make. Sometimes we tend to make things too complicated for ourselves and less looks best! Well done.
