I made cards!!! Beautiful, beautiful cards and something I hope my grand girls will enjoy doing too. Here they are.
mulberry paper which we drew a line on and then tore very gently. I loved the look of it when I was done. Not perfect, but no tree is.
Top left is a two sided piece of paper that we could do what we wanted with. I chose the side the no one else picked. I also did the design differently. I think on my headstone it should be written..................I did it my way.
The middle one I'll come back to. The top right card, of course, is different than anyone else's. I put the top paper on point and then did a flower instead of a Christmas theme. I didn't think of the ribbon colour until too late. I should have done the colour of the flower red, but hey you live and learn.
The bottom right caused me some angst. I couldn't get the strips placed perfectly and it nearly drove me crazy. They don't line up properly along the top so I placed my ribbon there so no one could see the difference. Next time I'll draw a light line for placement. Other than that I do love it.
Okay the top middle one...................my favourite. I just love this one. We got to muck up our fingers and kids will love this. You put your thumb onto the ink pad and use that for the reindeer's head. You draw on the ears and the antlers and give them a red nose. I did my thumb, pointer finger and baby finger, hence the different sizes. Another angst for me as they aren't centred but I kept telling myself these are for practice.
