early Christmas Cards


Due to the covid virus and stopping in at home, it is a great time to make my Christmas Cards - then I spotted a few items on the Clearance Rack in my shop and the deal was sealed - at the time of writing I have made 40 of the 60 planned cards (all the same) I went into factory mode mainly in the garden and got a bit of a tan (in April!) at the same time. 

This strange silver acetate was less than half price as was the glitter card in red- unfortunately at the time of writing this has now all gone - BUT there is still glimmer paper (glitter card) left in pink and the skater dies are still there and much reduced!! The dies include the holly , the back skate the front skate and the bow - although I didn't end up using the bow on my card. There was a matching stamp set in the past now long gone - but I think the dies stand alone really well. 

Here is the finished card! 
I have found through much trial and error that I make more cards if I just buy one stamp set or set of dies at a time - they are out of the box and straight on the craft table being made - however if I buy a tonne of stuff I just label it up and file it and it doesn't get used sometimes - so I am trying out my new theory and I just ordered the balloon dies on the clearance rack - hopefully on their way soon!
Why dont you go and have a look and see what is on clearance and also while you are on my shop check out the last chance products also - you have to scroll through a lot but there are some much reduced items on there to be snaffled up!
