Christmas Cards...

I always make my own Christmas cards, although I was a little late this year, posted them on Christmas Eve and crossed my fingers!  

I kept it simple this year, just card blanks with what are supposed to be paper chains stuck on.  The paper chains are from an Usbourne book called Decorations to Cut, Fold and Stick.  I just cut out along the lines then stuck them to my cards.  I also decorated the envelopes, 'cos I was feeling fancy!

I usually do something a little more elaborate, but I decided to be kind to myself this year, I have been super busy so needed something quick and easy.





My mum got this special creation, I made it at Rainbows!  Lucky her!

  1. Your cards are great - I love simple lines and designs, I think that they have more impact. I have never made my own cards, well not if you don't count making them with the children - think cotton wool snowmen and lots of glitter, more on the children and me than the cards!. I think that a homemade card is something special.

    1. Thanks Wean! Yes the bead shop is where I predict a lot of my pennies will be going to! So nice to have such a lovely shop round here :)

      Rainbows are the youngest age group of Girl Guides, aged 5 to 7, I've been helping with a local group for about a year now, I like the crafts the best!

  3. Very cute & simple. And thanks for the idea- I usually make ours too, but this year it just didn't happen. I'll remember yours and hopefully next year I'll be better!
