I really hope that this year I will have made enough Christmas cards to send to our friends without a mad making session at the last moment.
At Less is More we have had a few challenges which had a Christmas slant to them to allow everyone the chance to make Christmas versions should they wish to. This week however is a little more difficult to get away from Christmas as the challenge is entitled Jingle all the way.
For the first two cards, I simply Googled 'Santa's sleigh' and found a downloadable, printable image. As this one was reasonably long I decided to make two cards from the one image.
The bells are from Memory Box and the sentiment cut with a Sizzix die, using white card which I coloured to match the image using a Spectrum Noir pen.
The frame was cut with a Sizzix Framelit square.
Here are the other reindeer!This time the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
A little Docrafts Rudolph, embossed in gold and coloured with Mirage PEns.The embossing is also from a little Docrafts border folder.
The sentiment is from Sizzix again.
This is the last example for this week, which I popped on the Less is More Blog. Details are there!
I shall be singing in a performance of The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins this evening in Portsmouth. It's to be synchronised with a film specially produced for the purpose, with footage from many conflicts over the years beginning with World War I. I think it should be very moving!
