Christmas Cards 2018-jan-14


Welcome back to my blog.  I've got a quick share this evening.  Was playing along Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #272 - Glasses but I am a little late to link up. 

I am inspired by the bokeh effect in the background.  Here's my card.

Christmas cards 2018-jan-04

Hi craft friends,

Today I share my first Christmas card of 2018.  Last year my resolution was to make ahead my holiday cards and it proved to be extremely helpful during the busy holiday season, so I'd be doing the same this year.

I am playing along a few challenges with this card.  Originally I wanted the string of snow flakes to be the connection of the front panels, but I miscalculated the width of the gap and the snowflake  barely connects them, so I added a piece of vellum in the back for support.  Also I glue two times the die cuts to make it thicker.
