I only recently found this idea and made 3 - very time consuming but lovely for special people.

My personal favourite

Well, I made around 60 Christmas Cards this year and not many of them are the same! I get bored making multiples so – since around the middle of the year – every time I’ve seen a technique that appealed to me I have made one or two Christmas cards in that style. I have even got a jump on the cards for next year, made too many to send this time :).

I shall just show (most of) them below in groups of similar styles:

Seven Panel Card

These are the other two I made like the first photo – the idea came via the Joanna Sheen newsletter.

7 panel in teal

Steampunk

These are stamped with Chocolate Baroque’s Steampunk Christmas set:

Steampunk Joy

Steampunk Noel

Steampunk Noel 2

Steampunk Noel 3

Spellbinders Christmas Tree Die
The hardest part of this was sticking it down - it's very hard to get glue on all those little bits!

Simple

Tree

The tree is inside the card on this one, some snowflake-embossed acetate was stitched around the part-circle so it can be seen when closed.

Same idea as the previous card but with Create-a-Flake 4 dies.

This is the one I'd blogged about in an earlier post - it won 'Card of the Month'  for the Michael Strong group.

This was a real challenge to photograph - all those MicroBeads were so reflective!
