Card Magazine Papers

A lot of Magazines out there now give away free papers with each issue, these cards were made using papers from  "Creative Cards" Magazine Christmas papers.
They're very time saving, the backing papers and elements are all matching you just need to add a blank card a few bits and bobs - et voila -  you have an almost instant card.
Easy peasy!

Nancy Watt's Winter Ladies

I love Nancy Watt's artwork, she is such a wonderfully talented lady and a lovely person to boot, her beautiful images make any card elegant with so little effort.
These are from her "Winter Ladies" series which come printed on paper which I found a bit too flimsy for my liking so I adhered them onto very thin card before cutting and decoupaging them.

The base of this card is from Papermania's "Vintage Christmas" pad, I just added "Dazzles" peel offs and a sentiment, Sakura Clear Sparkle pen highlighted the spray from her hat and parts of her dress.

This card was made using patterned paper, Sakura pens and HOTP "Dazzles" peel offs.
The base of this card was a left over piece from a Kanban kit, I just added "Dazzles" snowflake peel offs and the sentiment

This card was made exactly as the one below except for being backed with gold mirror card.

Here I used a frame of blue snowflake paper which I backed with silver mirror card and mounted it on the base card covered with a matching paper, then just added a peel off snowflake and sentiment.
On this large card I used the whole image of the "Winter Lady" which I decoupaged and mounted on a blue snowflake design paper leaving a white border around the edge of the card.
I then added thin silver peel offs around the edge of the image and added a large ready made sentiment at the bottom.

If you haven't bought them yet, treat yourself to some amazing images which give a sophisticated elegant look to Christmas cards you'll probably want to keep for yourself.
