Alrighty then, now for some cards!

photo xmas cardI have been playing around with some ideas for Christmas cards and thought I'd share some here. They are quite varied in their styles and inspiration has come from myriad different places.This first one came about as one of my workshop hostesses asked for some ideas for incorporating photos into Christmas cards. Sort of scrapping on a smaller scale I s'pose! I used a similar layout to these ones, but flipped it on its side and added the photo. I would NEVER have thought to use these colours together, but I actually really like them - Always Artichoke, Taken with Teal, Real Red and Certainly Celery. I got the combo from page 16 of the current Stampin' Techniques booklet where some different combinations are suggested for different themes, this being one of the suggestions for a "holiday" colour scheme.

I quite like the idea of using photos for Christmas cards, so this might be an idea that I use this year... Tim calls this photo of the girls the "loving headlock"!
