If you left it too late to send Christmas cards...

...join the club!

Train strikes, work deadlines, college work, my best girls back from Uni.  A perfect storm of extra-busyness meant somehow I didn't manage to make cards in time to send this Christmas, but I still really want to keep in touch with neighbours and distant friends.  Well - Christmas Miracle - I don't have to go back to work till 3rd January so I decided to make some New Year's Cards instead.

It's a simple design that uses some super-sparkly wallpaper samples I was given and some large number die cutters.  I set up a production line - making a satisfying 23 cards in just a few hours in front of Strictly Come Dancing and Gogglebox; and here they all are...


I didn't have enough rhinestones so I just used a hole punch to make some inexpensive embellishments out of scraps of sparkly paper.

I'd love to see your new year's cards in the comments below!
