Merry Christmas Cards

Good Afternoon!

Today I’d like to encourage you look at the SVGs in your stash to see if you can use them in different ways. I wanted to share how even one element from a collection could come in very handy in a pinch.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make all of my Christmas cards from scratch this year so I added some simple embellishments to shop bought cards I already had to make them a bit more festive.

Here are the 5″ x 7″ cards I purchased from M&S, they are a satin mirror with embossed writing:

For each card I used one frame and a few red gems:

The holly frame is from the White Christmas SVG collection, you will find it on the ‘Robin Card Layer 2’ page. I could have cut my frames at the original size but I chose to resize them to 6.5″ wide so my cards have a border around the outside edge.

Here’s how my finished cards look:

Hopefully next year I can return to fully handmade creations for the people in my life and in the meantime, I hope this years recipients will be happy with their cards :)

    I will look at cards in the shops in a different way now. I didn’t make a single card this year which is very unusual for me. Thank you very much for this idea – I will look closely at the cards in the January sales to see if any can be embellished in case I run out of steam too early in 2018 too.
    Happy Holidays and all the very best for 2018
