Hello lovelies! A while ago I spotted some really lovely Christmas papers and they were on sale! I just had to get some :). These lovely vintage images practically jumped on me and I immediately knew that I wanted to create some Xmas cards with them.
I needed quite a few cards for a charity purpose, so I needed to make some extra cards this year. I have been invited to join an event, where the Finnish red cross collects handmade cards for people who are alone or in need. We are supposed to create the cards and write a nice sentiment on the cards, sign them and send them to the red cross department that collects them. They then put them into envelopes and give them to the people. The best thing is they take the time to check the cards and select a suitable one for each person, so that everyone receiving a card will get one that they will truly enjoy receiving.
I found the idea really great, so I gladly joined this happening. I hope my cards will bring a smile on someones face and give them some joy to their Christmas time.
For creating these cards I just used two sheets of patterned paper (one of those is from the sale here). Then I just added some glitter glue, a sentiment and a ribbon. Even though these cards are pretty simple in desing, I really like them alot. So how are you doing with your Xmas cards – have you already started creating them??
