Craftwork Cards Christmas Cards

Good morning to all my fellow crafty bloggers and  friends. I hope you are all well and enjoyed your week. Today I'm posting two Christmas cards yes you read right Two !!. When I went to the GNPE I shared one of these Craftwork Cards pads with my craft friend Carol. I've made three cards so far using it and  have enjoyed making them so quick and also perfect for posting


Card Recipe

7x7 blank cards
Craftwork cards Christmas Candi pad Winter Botanicals
The bow is from the bow pad given to me by my Crafty friend Carol
Candi is from GNPE and my stash
Christmas ribbon from my stash
Sentiment stamp LOTV Christmas Wishes
Pearls from the Range and Green gems Michaels Florida
Kraft card Crafters Companion
I coloured the inside of the bow with a green promarker pen as I didn't like looking down on the white reverse. These are so different for me but I did enjoy them especially as I made two in a morning.  I'll be posting some more as there's a few more designs so watch this Blog. I'm going away tomorrow to the Peak District for a week relaxing and walking depending on the weather it might be more relaxing !! I have some posts scheduled though for while I'm away . I'll have to catch up with all your lovely Blogs when I get home as the cottage we go to does not have wifi. I'm seeing my Son and Daughter in Law they are coming for the weekend so looking forward to seeing them.  I'll be handing over the new roman blind. its all finished and looks very smart.
Thank you for the lovely comments you have left recently I really appreciate the time you take to look at my Blog. Enjoy the weekend Hugs Carole x

Hello Carole,

I just adore your cards, the simplicity of the designs are brilliant, and the various colours and placement of the card candy wonderful.

Enjoy the Peak Districts.

I can't wait to see your other cards.

These are so clever, the candi looks great, and adds some dimension without it being too bulky for postage. Gorgeous. Crafty Blessings. Tracy x
