Hi, if you're anything like me, you will still be making Christmas cards at the very last possible minute......here is an easy tutorial for a simple set of cards, using minimum products.
I started by cutting 4 pieces of White Hemp Card, measuring 5.5" x 4", then 4 pieces of Black Plain Card slightly larger to matt & layer.

Next step was to stamp a lovely little holly image, using various shades of green ink, then a Christmas sentiment, both from Lavinia Stamps. I used a stamping platform to get the image & sentiment in exactly the same place each time......saves lots of work! (there are lots of different platforms on the market at the moment, ranging from £20 - £50)

I mounted the stamped piece onto the black card, then again onto a white card base. I made 4 card bases from 2 sheets of A4 card.

The finishing touch was lots of green and red Ranger 'Stickles' on the leaves & berries.

I made another variation by stamping directly onto the card base......much cheaper if you have a lot of cards to post, as this one is flat.

Well, hope you give this easy batch of cards a try......if you do, let me know how you get on.

Back soon,
