The final Christmas card..

I've finally got on to the last card that I made for the Creative Cardmaking magazine.  I saved this one until last as it is my favourite, if you are allowed to say things like that about your own cards!

Once again I made it using the Christmas Tree  backing paper download available on my website and the Festive Fun digital stamp collection.

I hear from my customers sometimes that they are a little nervous about using the bold stripes that I usually add to my collections but, I say give it ago.  They can be great cut up into small highlight sections or used as the whole background like on this card. The great thing about striped papers is that you have two options with them, they can be used horizontally or vertically.  This backing paper when printed out is a vertical stripe but I decided to use it horizontally on this card. So, you could create the same card and it could look really different if you put the backing paper the other way around.

Here's a closer look at the topper..

I coloured the image first before cutting it up into three sections.  It's an interesting way to create a topper and I definitely think you should give it a go.  

Well, that's the end of my Christmas cards for a while.  I plan to share other things with you next time..and tell you some fun things that are going to be going on here with Funky Hand that you can join in with.

Speak again soon

  1. I love this one Anice. I love the three part topper. It's amazing how a little change like this really gives it punch. Looking forward to seeing what will come next xx

  2. I love stripe designs - I'd be lost without them! They are so useful in loads of ways! I'd forgotten about this cute image - love the way you've used it here - it works brilliantly with the striped paper

  3. I love the colours and the three panels set off so well against the background x


Thanks for taking the time to read my blog, go on leave me a message I'd love to hear from you!
