My Christmas card making is at full throttle right now. Despite the early months I still keep making my Christmas cards, bit by bit, pair by pair until a decent card collection arises. I always send and hand in lots of cards around Christmas time and I like mine to be hand-made. Therefore I always start early to make sure I will have enough otherwise I will be stressing over it. With some other xmas projects like cross stitch and knitting on the go alongside the cards, things need to be done in time. So here are my next 2 new Nordic cards but this time with kids featured on them :)
I thought combining kiddies dressed in cozy winter clothes with the Nordic theme would be a good idea. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out. They have been stamped and coloured with pro-markers. (a note to self: will have to buy some more promarkers with Christmassy colours!)
To stamp the kids I used Hero Arts Holiday Dolls stamps set and for the backing papers I used Warm Winter Wishes I blogged about earlier on. A few bits and bobs like punched shapes and doilies have been added too.
More Nordic kids on their way :) Currently working on one of these cards.
And what about you, my dear reader? Do you start your Christmas crafting early? Do you make extra preparations? Share your thoughts with me :)
