Creative Cardmaking Magazine

I have been neglecting this blog for a while, as I have been a bit "bogged down" with a cardmaking project.

I was asked to submit 3 cards for Issue 9 of the Creative Cardmaking Magazine. This is the issue that will come out in November or December (not sure which), and the theme is Christmas Thank You cards.

I have really been struggling with this one, as I find it extremely difficult to think Christmas before the middle of December, let alone to think of cards to be sent AFTER Christmas! The deadline for them receiving the cards is Monday 7th September, so I have been working against the clock.

However, I did manage (just, yesterday afternoon) to come up with 3 cards, one of which will be chosen to go in the magazine. The scans do not do them justice, but here they are. Hope you like them!

This one is made using the Pyramage sheet "Letters to Santa" by Hunkydory Crafts.

On this one I used unmounted stamp sheet "Holly", although I used the poinsettia. I coloured them in using Letraset ProMarkers (love them!), and I edged the teardrop with metallic gold ink.

Last, but not least, this one uses a Pyramide sheet from Le Suh. The background paper used in this one and the teardrop card is one I made myself from a poinsettia picture.
