Some cards ...

Christmas wouldn't be complete without me making a dozen or so Christmas cards - it's sort of a bit of a tradition for me.  I used to give out many more but I came to realise that not everyone appreciates the time and effort it is to do handmade so now I usually send these send to like minded people and purchase charity cards for the others. Off the rails has a "Traditions" challenge this month with a sweet mood board featuring predominantly white, silver and red.


Here are 3 of the cards I made (there were 10 in total) using leftovers from a Christmas kit I have used to pre-make pages for my Christmas photos for 2016.  I love using up bits and pieces like this for cards.

I agree. I don't do a lot of cards but the ones I do are for very special people and occasions. I love your creations. They are a perfect match for the moodboard with great patterns.
Thanks for joining us at Off the Rails Scrapbooking.
