6 on the 6th (or the 9th..)

I might be catching up with my projects but things like cameras breaking and printers breaking and my head breaking are preventing me from feeling totally on top of things.  

I did manage to complete another set of 6 Christmas cards for the S J Crafts series (see the new button in the sidebar) which is now offering a lovely box of stash for one lucky participant.  Here is the photo of my six...

Yes.. I know... shocking.  I was standing up and holding the camera up over my head but this was the best I could do.  I took dozens of shots of them standing on the desk but that wasn't any better.  My new lens is going to cost me at least £80 and will be a few days before it arrives so this is it for now I'm afraid.

All 6 cards are the same design and the only difference is the background paper and the colour of the brads.  There are 2 with white based paper, 2 with green based and 2 with a metallic version of the green based.

I stamped and embossed the reindeer and mounted it onto some tartan type paper.  I still love watching the powder melt!

I cut 6 banners on my Silhouette and added them onto the background using foam pads.  I edged everything with Black Soot Distress Ink.

Each one has a brad from some very old stash and some Christmassy gold ribbon.

They didn't really turn out the way I had them in my head but I now have 12 cards ready to go and I have been using up some old stash along the way!  Everyone's a winner.

Bye for now
