Fa la la la la la la la la

You're singing the "la"s and seeing whether I got the right number aren't you? :-) Here's a great way to make quick cards and use up some of those stickers and peel-offs.

Take a blue card blank and cut a piece of thin white card to size so that it would mat on top. Using scissors, cut a wavy line through the white card. This gives you two pieces of white card that are the right size to fix to the front of two blue card blanks and look like snow-covered hills!

"fa la la la la la la la la"

I stamped some birds from one of my favourite free magazine stamps last year and coloured them with distress markers. A sentiment, some tree stickers  and the star stickers finished the card off nicely!

N.B. If you don't have blue card blanks, you can use white card blanks and blue card to make the sky. You make the card just the same, but stick the blue over the white.


As you can see, I had so much fun making these cards...


... I made a whole bunch of them!


I never like to make two the same, so I moved the stamping around, changed the colours, used stars instead of snowflakes, added some snow to some with a white opaque pen, etc.


Some have more trees than others lol! See you again tomorrow for some more snowy scenes. Maddy x

  10. You have been really busy. This is a fab set of cards. I also like to work in little changes, so that no two cards are ever the same - I just make an exception for Christmas cards for our own use, as I just need too many,
