Home-made Christmas cards….

Sorry, I know I’m terribly early but it is November now…and making your own stuff takes time, you’ve got to do it when you can.

The fact that my DIY skills on our house renovation are not needed at the moment has given me time to start planning this years cards.

I have been making my own cards for some years
and I  must admit sometimes I jus2015-11-19 21.18.44.jpgt can’t think of anything new to do.
I use the internet and Pinterest and books and old cards…. just about anything for ideas… this was last years..




Inspiration came this year after doing a couple of birthday cards for friends with significant birthdays, I chose to feature their ages and thus a plan came together for the 25 December.

I bought the blank cards from The Works.co.uk (the square patterned ones)

and Hobbycraft (the plain cream ones).img_0462


The gel for the coiled spring effect… could you tell it was supposed to be a calendar??? is created using a liquid gel which stands out a little, you may be able to see this from the photo.P1090809.JPG

Do let me know what you think…

Back soon,
Love Rosie
