Christmas Cards

I started working on Christmas projects early, you might think.
But, actually I am not early at all...
That is one of the things with owning an Etsy shop.
My stuff must be out when the customers started thinking of Christmas. Otherwise, the things I make are not going to be reaching my customers before Christmas.
Interesting, right?
Here is a new card added to shop today

I used acrylic paint to make the green background. Other things are just stickers.

It is looking great.  If you want to make one, it is an easy DIY card project.
Just paint the cardstock with the paint. Then add otherwise blah looking sticker on top of it.
Add your greetings or just stamp a message.

When there is no inspiration for art...

It is canada day again! Rain in the mid morning was not that annoying. Actually it was just fun to watch and listen the sound of rain.There is something in the sound of rain. It was just a pleasant rain. Not angry rain. 
The rain didn't make me interested in making more art. So, in the afternoon, I decided to just use some paint. It wasn't big fun. Yet, I created a background page on the journal.

The left page seems like a background right? The right one looks like a kid played with paint. It tells you about my dry mood to do art.
Then, the odd thing from my mystery box was asking me to make some texture. Since the lavender paint is not making any ideas, I choose pink and an index card. 
Now, that is something nice.It can be used later. 
 Now, I have this idea to make a greeting card. So, picked up a blank card and added some sort of paper edging. Then I dipped the  brush in black acrylic paint to write.
That is not finished yet. I left the card for drying. It needs some glitter and some color, don't you think?

 Happy Canada Day!

Share for fun

Mixed Media Greeting card

Haven't you keep a lot of blank cards to make handmade cards?
I keep few in my stash all the tim. 
sometimes, you get them on a bargain price, like these ones:

 In the cover they looked so lovely. I loved the prints.They came in a pretty box with a memo pad with same prints and a set of index cards. It was in my stash for months now. 
This year, I am going to give handmade greeting cards for Christmas. That is going to be fun.
I am also trying to learn few hand embroidery stitches. So, combining fabric, paper, thread... 
I am not sure it can be called mixed media greetings card, because, I didn't add any paint on it. 
The embroidery stitch is called interlaced running stitch. 
Should it needs some sequins? or beads? Or just leave it as it is...
What you think? Any suggestion is helpful.
