Charity Christmas Cards (cont'd.)

Today, I'm showing you Norma's handmade Christmas cards from when my creative crew got together to make cards for the Southern Ontario Animal Rescue (SOAR) to give out this year.  Now, Norma has always told me that she doesn't have a crafty bone in her body.  I don't think that's true and I'll tell you this: she is resourceful!

Her cards were made from preprinted Die Cuts with a View cards.  Then, she dressed them up.  She is quite good at matching the colours and deciding how to alter the design to make it her own.  On the "Peace" card, she stamped the sentiment herself, added the holly stickers and put red sparkly stickles on the berries to successfully transform a non-holiday card in to a clearly holiday card!

For the milk and cookies, she used dimensional tape to pop up the centre design.  It's hard to see in the photo but the sentiment does have glitter on it like shiny icing sugar.

This card, with the swirly vine, she also added the red glitter stickles to make it pop and stamped the two little mice at the tea cup hanging their stockings for Santa.  Along the botton, there is a natural border to the bracket shape so she added ribbon across for a touch of texture.

Two more Christmas Card creators to go: Claire and myself!  Stay tuned!
