Christmas cards

The blog has been a bit quiet lately as I have been frantically making things, firstly for my fundraising effort at church (with crochet flowers and embroidered bags) and then as I had a table at a local craft fair. I've been sewing so much that I have just finished my second 1000m reel of cotton in about a month.

I made a selection of cards for the craft fair, with the idea that I could use the ones that didn't sell as my own Christmas cards to send out this year. I'm pleased to say that the fair went really well and I did have a to make a few more cards, as I did sell some.

Here are some of my cards...

This has a watercolour background with a star stitched on, with a stamp of the kings.

The background on this card was made with paint over a gesso background (for texture) with book text clouds.

This is one of my favourite Christmas stamps, which I added some sequins to for a little added sparkle.
