Christmas cards!


Recently I played around with Mama Elephant's Cozy Christmas, just for fun. I decided to make a series of one-layer cards coloured with Copics and SU! Blendabilities. I'm sharing a few here.

On this first one, my naughty yellow Copic splattered my card, so I added some unplanned stars, lol! Sentiment is PTI.
On this next one, I added a lovely pile of presents. Sentiment is from Mama Elephant Merry Greetings.
I added a shiny gold star to the tree for this next card. PTI sentiment again.
For this next one, I felt that the tree by itself looked a bit funny without a trunk, so I used the glass from the set to create one.
For all of these cards I used Simon Says Stamp #120lb card. Oh my goodness! This cardstock is my new love. I coloured directly onto the card, and there was zero bleed through, despite enthusiastic blending! I wish I could find an inexpensive way of importing it to Australia. In fact, I wish there was a supplier of ANY quality card stock in Australia, full stop! I'm wondering if I need to start a card stock importing business, lol!

I hope you liked my Christmas cards. Thank-you for stopping by to visit me!

I'm hearing you Michelle! I buy Papertrey Ink cardstock, but haven't tried Simon Says Stamp cardstock yet. The postage is a killer :(

Lovely cards! I think you should definitely start a cardstock importing business. Blue Edge Crafts have some pretty good 300gsm card (comparable to Neenah Solar white 110LB) but our choices in Oz are extremely limited. Please, please, please do consider it.
