It's closer and closer... it's almost Christmas. When we get to November, we feel it's already Christmas... and the spirit starts to get into everybody. Most people even change behavior... Have you noticed? People is more kind... and tolerance is the order of the day... Since it's Christmas, some think it's a reason to be a better person, understand others and give in... yes... I know... It is what should happen all year around... but you know... let's enjoy the season and witness what the human beings are capable of... LOVE.
These are my first Xmas cards this year... I so needed to do something just because... and these are my first...
For this one I used a Santa sticker, which I placed in cardstock and then cut so it can be stronger because I wanted to place with square dots in 3D.
The "hohoho" message is from a commercial tag I had from a gift. I thought it was worth it to re use it in a card... why not?
I also had this Magnolia image that teacher Maribel had given me in a class. I painted it with watercolor pencils and used Xmas colors to make it suitable for the theme, since the image is not a Christmas intended one.
Just left it as simple as possible so the girl can be the star of the card.
I hope you like my first Christmas cards this year... More to come later on...
Have you started yours? Do you make cards for your family and friends, or for selling, or for fun? Share with me... :)
