Handmade Christmas Cards: Holiday Crafting

Making some Christmas cards with my craft-loving girl!  I got her to paint a couple of pictures in watercolour using some old Christmas cards for ideas.  Then I scanned them in - added the text and printed on card stock.  I drew the bauble card in pencil, got her to paint it then I traced in black pen before scanning.

I love how they turned out.  We won't put twine on all of them, just experimenting and giving Anya a chance to do some threading.  These were last year's cards.  What a difference a year makes.

Great idea. Would love to do that will Ellie over the next little while - good one for teachers and kids church teachers too. Might put it into one of my advent bags! xo

Great idea and she looks very pleased with her effort :)

P.S. agree with Gret on seeing you in that little face :) xx

Love! Such a gorgeous idea. And Anya has grown so much. My goodness, her hair - it's such a beautiful colour, Ros - divine.
