Christmas at Easton

Morning all!
Happy Thursday to you - last Thursday, I did my regular spot at the Easton Craft group.  We made a start on Christmas cards....I know it may seem a bit early, but if you are sending lots of handmade Christmas cards, you have to get ahead or you will end up like me, scrabbling around to make a whole load at the last minute!!

I always like Christmas cards to be fairly flat, so you don't have to pay extra postage

For the first card, we stamped the baubles, then masked them and inked the pine leaves stencil over the top (I used three different colour greens)
Remove the masks and colour in
Draw a line to hang the baubles from
Add your greeting

For the second card, we used the starry stencil to create the background, then stamped and coloured the small, round Santa stamp

For the third card, we squished some versa mark ink through the stencil, then added perfect pearls.

The doves are stamped, cut out and matted on to a die cut circle (Not sure what the strange,white on the centre of the Doves is - it is not on the actual card, just there when I scanned it!)

Thanks to all the ladies for making it a fun evening and especially thanks to the cake-makers!!
Looking forward to the next one!
