Hello again

Although I create festive cards throughout the year because of tv launches: it is only now that I begin my personal Christmas card-making.

This year, I am recording short videos as I go. This means that if you see a card design you like, you will have a few pointers to get your creative juices flowing. I am at about the halfway mark so allow me to share a few of my recent favourites.

Day 1 – Star card

This is such a simple stamped card but sometimes they make the most striking designs.

Day 4 – Stamped stag card

This is another stamped and masked card – based on an idea from a few years ago.

Day 7 – Teepee card

This year I decided to make mini teepee cards and tie them up with a festive ribbon.

Day 11 – Origami Christmas tree

This set of papers “Let’s Get Cozy” from Graphic 45 has a nordic feel to it so I made a matching fir tree using a great origami technique.

Each of my video tutorials is launched at 5.30pm (UK time) and is saved to a dedicated playlist. This means you can watch as you craft. I have even included a festive sound track for you to listen to in the background.

I would love to hear when you try any of these ideas. Please tag me on social media @elisabethhogarthdesigns

Happy festive crafting

Love Elisabeth xx
