Me and my X-mas cards...

... after having done I don't know how many X-mas cards already this year and I'm still not tired of it. I am totally amazed by myeself. :) This one is kind of simple but such a joy to create. At Passion for Promaker this week the theme is recycle. And so have been done. The corrugated card I'v used as a back ground is from a gift from my birthday. It's not showing very well on the photo but it is spray painted in silver, with a can I had left from last year when I sprayed a few out door flowerpots for X-mas time.

Also the string that is in the back ground of the little Santa men is reused. Kind of Knicked it from my sons calender. Don't worry he makes tons of the at Kindergarten and each and every one of them has a string on them. He won't be missing this. He tells me that every one needs to have a calender. I ask what he has all of his for, he simply looked at me and said so I know when I don't have to be at kindergarten. Four years old, what an age it is. :) Huge problem not to laugh too much at him. He is a serious guy. ;)

The paper I've used for my Christmas trees are also reused. (A Marianne die). The paper was rapped around a bunch flowers a while back. I thought it was kind of OK for stuff like this as it is much harder than flower papers normally are.They are embossed and got a little fluid chalk over them to give some more contrast to them. Santa guys are a tiny little snag 'em stamp. I found it really cute and will be great on the Christmas envelopes this year. They are poped up on 3D-dots for some more depht in the card.

I am also entering this card in the challenge at Winter Wonderland which have the theme of a male christmas card this week.
This is all for now. Take care and enjoy your evening.
