Card clips

Somehow at this time of the year I'm filled with equal measures of excitement and trepidation… these month roll by at a pace I find difficult to accept. In preparation for the festive season I called upon the Etsians to find me some beautiful handmade greetings cards – something to whet the appetite – anyone who knows me personally will know how I love handmade cards… I've even tried doing it myself, but, hey ho, that's best left to these guys in my opinion!

Here's such a simple design by bluecricket, but the choice of colour elevates it to a new level - so clever!



Appleblossom has made some lovely pastel-coloured greetings cards



From SmallBlueThing this absolutely gorgeous card: the words have been printed onto card, cut into a heart shape and stitched onto brown parcel paper with red, wonky stitching. Punched heart shapes decorate the outside, with wooden button detail. The layering in this card really adds to it's "craftiness" and the colours remind me of things Scandanavian!



Finally, some friendly penguins from Steppie. I love the rustic quality of the board Steppie has chosen and the simple stamped design…



More on cards coming soon!
