Father Christmas

Good Afternoon everyone...Genny here. Today I thought that I would share 2 more cards made using the Father Christmas cdrom by Crafters Companion.This really is a fantastic cdrom and everyone that has seen the images and cards made with them, have loved it. So many people love the film and are now making it part of their christmas tradition, so to be able to create cards with these iconic scenes is something really special.
The top card is one made using an image from the decoupage section on the cd. The backing paper is from the design set section. The decoupage was really easy to do and makes a lovely large topper for a card. The only embellishment I have added is some pine boughs that were cut in white card and some die cut snowflakes.I cut the snowflakes in white card and then painted them with twinkling H20s to match the colours in the card.
The second card is made using one of the fabric topper images from the cd. These images are larger than normal and are faded at the edges so if you wanted to use them on sewing on cushions it gives a better look. But also these images are great to use on larger cards. This card is a 8x8 one and the size of the image makes a great focal point on the card and therefore needs very little embellishment. I have only added some glitter to the image and a few diecut snowflakes.
I hope that you all like the cards. Sometimes when cardmaking we need a quick card and sometimes we like to spend a little longer..either way this cd will provide a solution..and whichever way you want to go, the finished card is going to be one that people are going to love.
The cdrom is available from Julie here at JB-Crafting Supplies along with many fabulous cutting dies and embellishments. Why not pop along and have a look or contact Julie. Whatever you do..take care and happy crafting..Genny
