Family cards

This is the card that I have made to give to my parents and Mick's mum for Christmas.

It took a long time to make as I had to do the computer wording on scrap paper first then get it positioned to print onto my backing paper. The 'C' & 'W' were traced in gel pen using a light box and then glittered. Done straight from the computer the spacing was all wrong because of the different sizes.
I have only completed one so far but the next will be much quicker now I know what i'm doing and have the wording already done.


The A5 card is in soft cream and has the whole of the front covered in red holographic card. A green mottled card with rounded corners is layered on top of this. The greeting is on pale green paper mounted onto the same red holographic card, both with rounded corners. The words are printed in red with the first letters picked out in gold ultra fine glitter.


The flowers are fabric poinsettias which have been taken apart, glittered and put back together with a gold star brad and green sequin flower. The fern is cut from a much larger spray.
They have been attached using silicon glue.

I will have to make some kind of box to put them in, luckily they don't need to be posted.
