Little batch of Christmas


 
I haven't made any cards for a few days, my fabric obsession has sort of taken over my crafting time and I've been busy making things to (hopefully) sell at a small Christmas Fayre in a local nursing home next weekend.
 
 
 


For the little batch of Christmas cards I'm sharing with you today, I used some felt in red and green, my Cuttlebug, a Marianne's Craftable Tree die and star shaped button die from a set of Marianne's tag and button dies.  I was very pleased with the way the dies cut through the felt in a nice crisp and clean way on my Cuttlebug.
 
The felt trees were added over a small rectangular layer of bp from a pack I bought recently in Hobbycraft.  I'm loving the Scandinavian style designs which seem to be popular this winter and this pack of papers have different designs in red and white.  The sentiment is from a Molly Bloom magazine freebie samp set, stamped with Festive Berries Distress Ink. 
 
I shall take these cards with me to the Christmas Fayre but if they don't sell I'll keep them for my own use, which will save me some time as I don't have anywhere near enough cards made so far !  I'm not in too much of a panic yet, but the days are rushing by and I know I have to get my overseas cards into the post in the next few days.

These have a lovely Nordic feel to them Wynneth. I'm very into felt right now, just need to find some time to experiment a little :)
