Christmas Wrapping

Another Christmas card, there is no stopping me now, except I have four birthday cards and a new baby card I need to make, better get into gear. You can bet though as soon as I start on the birthday cards the christmas mojo will disappear.

I have also been enjoying paper piercing and the lovely effect but this time I decided to try piercing every other hole and running my pen along the lines afterwards and it really looks stitched and is much easier than learning to use a sewing machine lol.

It just needs some nailheads or candy dots to finish it off and I will add them nearer the posing date.

These images have been so much fun to colour and I have several others ready to go so maybe more cards will get made soon.

I still need to decide on my mass produced design though, at the moment I am thinking I will use the Papertrey Ink stockings but that may change.
