Red and teal

I usually do some stitching at my W.I. craft group....papercrafts take up too much space....or they do for me!! But this week I decided to make some christmas cards.....made myself a little kit to take.....and managed to make 4 while chatting and eating cakes....with another 2 made when I got home.
I used the lovely Carta Bella 'Bundled Up' papers in my favourite christmas colours....red and teal......with plain card to match. 
 The rest of my 'kit' consisted of snowflake brads, flowers and Craftwork Cards sentiments.
The images are all from LOTV art pads which I added some teal colouring to.

Your collection of Christmas cards is growing! I love the patterned papers you used in the first card; I'm wondering if I have those somewhere. I'll have to look when we get home on Sunday.

I will never cease to be amazed at your creativity with Christmas cards. Especially having "tried" to make my own cards this year... more work than I ever dreamed of!

So cute! You've definitely gotten into your Christmas card making groove.

I'm thinking about making cards at the next Crafty Tuesday - so I'm planning to kit up a few next week. Maybe I'll be able to finish the last of the Christmas cards I need.
