5 Cards, 1 image, 1 layout

One of the girls at work asked if I could some christmas cards to send to her family back home - 5 brothers, 1 sister and a Mum.

For the brothers I used the same image - Father Christmas from Digistamp Boutique - and which I coloured in with copics, adding stickles for the santa's hat, jackets and boots and watered down liquid pearls to the beard. To make it easier for me I decided that I would use the same layout for all the cards but use different cardstock to make each card individual.

Was also asked to do a card for her sister. My inspiration came from one of the cards I did recently for a challenge. Used the same basic elements but it has turned out totally different.

The final card was for her mum, all she said was that wanted it to express how much she missed her. Using my sizzix shadowbox dies cut out 2 m's and a u in co-ordinating card and for the sentiment adapted a birthday sentiment and added a bow as a finishing touch.

Thanks for popping by.
