Last year I made a few cards with the Magnolia range of stamps. I found these cards very time consuming, and very unlike the style I normally make. There is general style that goes along with these stamps, and I suppose you could say these are the hard cards for me... they are busy and have a lot on them... like this card at Magnolia's card studio ..... and they take some time.
This is the first attempt that I had at this style last year .... not bad for a a first go, but a lot of room for improvement compared to what you can do with these lovely stamps!
Anyhow, I found some lovely hand painted ones on the interweb this year, so decided to have another bash at them for Christmas ...
This time I stuck to more of my own style ... and I think I like them! They are less busy, and take less time so they can be sold at a reasonable price for the hours I put into making them,
I would love your opinions on them .... Do you like them? What can I do better next time? ANy help welcome!!
