Wreath Christmas Cards

As we missed Blogmas day 12, here is the first of two today! And it's a crafty one! As I really like wreaths at the moment, I wanted to incorporate our blog logo into a card design this year, and I thought I'd show you how I did it.

1. First, I did a few paintings on some water colour paper of leaves, flowers and vines.

2. Using Photoshop, I then arranged them into a wreath shape, layered them up and played with the colours!

3. As typography has been huge this year, I downloaded a cool font, and played with the sizing in the wreath.

4. Now comes the cards! I bought a pack of 50 brown cards and envelopes, which you can get in stationary shops and online.

5. I then printed out the wreaths, plus some personalised messages, and stuck them on/in the cards.

And here's the finished product!

Who else likes to make their own cards?
