It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

#BEDN: Something You Made

Now that it is officially Christmas next month (where did that time go?!) I am starting to make my Christmas cards as I promised myself that I would in my Gap Year Bucket List
I'm playing with a few designs at the moment:

This one is a little bit glitzier and I am going to buy some red ribbon to make a little bow for the wreath. 

This one is really time consuming, all the colouring and cutting small bits out. I think I am going to just stick to a few of these.

We've just bought a Sizzix die cutter, so I think the next few I make will incorporate our new toy!
Which is your favourite? Have you got any top-tips for Christmas card making?

  1. I love the wreath card, definitely going to have to give that a try I have so many sequins for it!
    Thanks for sharing

    I'm also taking part in #BEDN can't wait to see what everyone does for each post!

    1. You should, it's a bit fiddly but easy when you get the hang of it! Looking forward to reading your posts :) x

  2. Love the holly wreath card! It's very sparkly and with great colours! :-) x

  3. I love the first one! I used to make my own christmas cards as well but stopped a few years back because it was too time-consuming. Great you're making them all by yourself :-)

    1. That's why I am starting so early, because I know I will run out of time too! :) I'll probably only end up making like 5. x

  4. Love the holly wreath card. I've been busy cross stitching a Christmas design for the Christmas card I'm giving to the parents. I'd love to do more home made cross stitch ones but it takes too long, maybe next year i'll have to do them across the whole year to be more organised!

  5. I love the sequin wreath idea, very creative! xo
