Even quicker Christmas card

My Christmas tutorial is now on the Most Wanted website, so feel free to pop along and leave a message telling them how fab I am, LOL!

Meanwhile, here's another really quick Christmas card, with barely any cutting. The card base is 9cm square, with an 8cm square of Not Quite Navy layered on top. Then it’s just punching – easy!

It’s weird that I never liked Not Quite Navy until the new colours came out this October. Now I love it with Cherry Cobbler. And Union Jacks in darker yet faded shades of red, white and blue are all the rage at the moment, so this colour combination is very current.

Stamps: Season of Joy, Perfect Punches
Cardstock: Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Accessories: 1 ¼” circle punch

  1. Very nice Helen, I'm all for quick but effective cards. I've had at least two cards with Cherry Cobbler on and have to say its reeling me in "come on Helen, buy me, you know it makes sense" - that wasn't the verse on the card incidentally.

  2. You are FAB and so is your card! :)

  3. Ditto about Not Quite Navy! Weird how it's now used lots more by many people.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
