According to the news, Monday was the busiest day of the year for the Royal Mail, as they had to cope with approximately double the normal volume of post - so I bet a lot of people must have been writing their Chrimbo cards whilst watching the X-Factor Final on Sunday evening lol!!
For me this was crunch time though, as I looked at my sorry stash of cards and could no longer deny the fact that I had made nowhere near enough!
So ... time for "Plan B" !! I visualised a simple card based around die cuts and a simple embossed greeting .... and I went for it major league!! 3 hours later I had made 16 cards that looked pretty much like this ....
Stamps: Pink Gem Christmas sentiment (heat embossed with gold powder);
Supplies: two shades of dark green glitter card, gold and holographic silver mirri card;
Tools: Marianne D Creatables "Fir Branch", "Baubles" and "Bauble/Star".
One Stop Craft Challenge #161 - Traditional Christmas Colours
CES #65 - A Traditional Christmas
Dream Valley #22 - Christmas
Crimbo Crackers #4 - Embossing
Cupcake #172 - Don't Look At The Light (sparkle & shine)
I also made another 12 cards based around other simple themes, but I was in such a rush to get them written I never took photographs - hey ho never mind!!
Back tomorrow with a new I ♥ ProMarkers Challenge - here's a sneak peek :-)
Have a great evening!
