Ok, let me just start off by saying, “yes, I know I didn’t post a card last week.” I’ve been fighting a cold for over a week and last week was Thanksgiving and busy and I just didn’t get around to it. Life happens.
And now that that’s out of the way, we can move on to this week. 🙂
A few months ago I joined a group on Facebook as a fan of another blog, and a gal over there started a craft exchange. Basically, every quarter, the people who signed up are assigned another member to send a homemade craft to. This week is the first week we are sending out the crafts, and I got mine shipped off this evening. Everyone who joined gave a list of a few of their fandoms as ideas, though it’s not required to make something based off something on the list. My giftee is a fan of Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who, among other things, so I sent her a couple pieces of LotR jewelry that I have made. I wanted to send a note as well, so I made a Christmas-y Doctor Who card to send along.
I started off with a black base, then randomly stamped a bunch of snowflakes on the top part. I ripped the snowy hills from white cardstock and glued them down, tucking the little TARDIS behind the front hill. I also topped the hills with a little bit of glitter.
The card was still pretty boring, so after staring at it for a while, I added the snowflake and Merry Christmas stickers. Those especially gave it a little more color and character.
I hope she likes it! And I hope my next couple giftees are also Doctor Who fans, since I still have the couple geeky cards I made last year sitting in a box, waiting to be sent to someone who will appreciate them.
Stamps used: snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up set “Holiday Hedgehogs” and TARDIS from Etsy shop terbearco
