Quick and Easy Cards and Gifts

The focus for this week is quick and easy cards and I created a mixture of both.

This is the gift part - the little glassine envelopes will be filled with smarties which correspond with the stamped instructions!  They make a great treat for teachers of tree present, or just a little thank you for a friend.  I used the Tando mini snowflake which I covered in white ink, and then inked the edge with distress ink, and also the mini reindeer just covered in brown ink and glossy accents.

For the cards- I layered up lots of offcuts of paper and then inked the stocking with some red, and the cuff with a matt gold colour, I then covered it all in glossy accents and whilst that was still wet sprayed on some red glimmer mist which is why you get the watercolour spots on the stocking.

A really simple card for my last one - I used the snowflake mask as a stencil, just using a gel pen, and then found the co-ordinating mini snowflake which I covered in white ink and stickles, the final touch was to stamp Merry Christmas.
