My Christmas Cards are all made - Hoorray

This year I actually managed to hand make all my Christmas Cards in less then two weeks. It is the first time since I started making cards 10 years ago that I will not be buying a single Christmas Card. This covers all the cards for my son's 30 Class mates, husbands collueges and family local and abroad, super wow and super affordable too. 
 This best about it all is that I managed to make it all with freebies (papers, stamps and Chipboard goodies) from various magazines, some Stephanie Barnard Framelit Flip-Its, a few Dimension Stamps stamp sets and card stock I already had, so super kind on my crafting budget as well. 
Papercraft Inspirations Magazine love this reader challenge entry and and it is going to feature it in their February issue

The 3D stars on this card can be created by die cutting or punching a few star shapes.  Score and fold a line from each point down to the centre point of each star.  Gently pinch each star along the score lines to create a 3d effect so they stand out.  Aply with glue dots or dimensional foam pads.

I will be posting more photo's later, hope you like them all.
