“Merry Christmas from us”

Personalised Christmas cardPersonalised Christmas card

This is a card example for the “Make a mobile/magnet” class, and it happens to be based on Laura’s sketch (from 2Sketches4You), made for the Scrapbook News and Reviews‘ celebration of WCMD — see, I did manage to make a card (eventually)!

Close-up of Christmas cardIt is meant to be simple and easy to mass-produce as a personalized Christmas card. The photo is of my husband and I, wearing popped santa hat clip art 😀 [it cracks me up every time I read that sentence!] Neither of us are fans of “Christmas fluff“* (like those Santa hats for example), but I just couldn’t help myself — it works so well on this card! I used liquid pearls to make the woolly parts of the hats look 3D.
