Christmas In June – Episode Four – Family Cards & Still Keeping It Green

If you read my last post you might remember my mentioning that I salvaged the fronts from some beautiful Christmas cards I received in 2021. I always make special cards for family members and I used the beautiful card fronts as backgrounds for my special family cards. I used 8″ square card blanks and unbranded nesting stitched octagon dies to cut the recycled card fronts into mats and layered them onto gold card mats. I basically made the same card design for all of the cards using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Jolly St Nick Thinlits dies, a set of unbranded stitched tags dies and Card Making Magic relatives sentiments dies. I switched out the colours to co-ordinate with the card background. I have two daughters and always make sure their cards are the same, luckily I received 2 identical cards so was able to continue as usual with a subtle difference in colours.
