I returned today to the tried and tested method of using old christmas cards to make new ones. I can run cards up quite quickly this way, and i wanted to bump the number of cards i’d made up a bit. i succeeded – i made 11 today – which brings the total to 44.

Photographs of the cards are behind the cut, as per usual.

I’m possibly going food shopping tomorrow (got to get the booze for the xmas cake/pud) but i’m not sure if i will – it depends on the weather, its promising to chuck down tomorrow and not on friday, so i may postpone it and work on cards again. if i do and i get a similar number done then i’ll feel much happier, i think. we’ll see. 🙂

i kept getting reflection off this card when i took a photo, theres so much shiny silver card in it, i had to take this at an angle...

like the former one, the reflectivity of part of it causes problems with the flash. the crackers are recycled from an old card, but theyre set into apertures within the flocked red paper.
