I thought i had better make a start on the childrens christmas cards for their friends at school, i'm trying to keep them as simple as possible as there is probably around 40 children to make for, one down 39 to go lol, no problem....eek. Anyway, i am able to get 3 cards out of an A4 piece of card which is good and really all it is is a stamped image coloured, so i'm stamping them all out onto a watercolour pad and colouring them in front of the tv, then all i need to do is tie some ribbon around the card, matt the image onto another piece of card and add the stickles. I've kept a template of the insert, again i get 3 inserts from one piece of paper so its bit like a conveyer belt, stamp, colour, cut, stick, tie, stickle, print, cut and bobs your uncle. The image i have used on this little card is from Cuddly Buddly 'Oh Christmas Tree' and i have coloured it with my marvey pens and waterbrush. I am entering this card for the Cute Card Thursday challenge, this weeks theme is 'Lots of Sparkle'.
