The very last of this years Christmas cards. Specials for my grandchildren. All safely in the post for them.
I recently saw this card shape on a blogging friend's (Carol 'Crafty-Stamper') page and thought what a perfect design it would make for the stamp I had in mind to use. I actually bought the stamp this time last year and have kept it to use now as I already had their cards made for 2020. Found a great tutorial for it on You Tube from Maximum. I have called the card 'On Point' as it reminds me of a row of ballerinas up on point but both Carol and Maxine are calling it a Diamond Point shaped card.
The yellow star paper is from Making Cards magazine Nov 2016 and the snowflakes design is by Alison Butler from Crafts Beautiful magazine. The stamp is by Clarity and comes with an assortment of stamped strips to make up your own design on the jumper . The Large letter is by my Daughter AIFaDoodles - CWSD331 from Whimsy Stamps. Fluff now has a whole range of Fadoodle stamps out and a new one coming in the New Year. (Mum preening her feathers here!) Coloured using Graph'it pens and then a liberal dusting of Pearlescent chalks for a subtle sparkle.
Again coloured using my Graph'it pens. You can see a little clearer on this one the doodles on the letter D. Each letter of the Alphabet in the set has Fluff's trade mark dooling on it.
My fingers do not like the cold weather and have not been crafting or blogging so missed out again for showing my cards in the Christmas Card group that I am in. Fortunately the theme is anything goes and is the last one for this year.
I am so pleased that I had managed to get the majority of my cards made in the summer months so only had the envelopes to make and decorate the past few weeks. Thankfully all in the post now and I even beat the deadlines for abroad.
Hope everyone has a lovely time this Christmas and all those due their boosters can get them done.
