Last one! The intended targets loved it.
My first attempt at a shaker card, I think it turned out well, considering I couldn’t find any 3d foam tape. And the “Noel” is a touch off centre, but it still turned out lovely.

My apologies for the blurry photo, and for forgetting to post this here.
This one was for C, who’s an amazing person, and always gets the most difficult card to make.
I struggled with so many different ways to make the “Season’s greetings” writing, only to settle on 3D glue with black holo glitter dusted onto it. The Northern Lights were difficult to paint (since I’m bad at landscapes), and the trees were so darn stabby.

A little break from the Christmas cards, as the last two still have to be flung at their intended victims.
The weather has been eerily warm here in Ontario the past week, so it had me thinking of pretty soft pastels and florals.

This one is for N, I don’t know if she even received it as I haven’t heard anything from her. But I’m just going to sit here and be hopeful that it managed to find her.
Cardstock of various colors and finishes. Gold finetec ink, and he leaves are hand cut.
It’s that time of year where I make some Christmas cards for a select few. I made a total of 4 this year, and this one was for S. She’s received it a while ago now, so it’s safe to post it. And from her response she really liked it.
Done using black cardstock, homemade glitter paste, pearls, rhinestones and gold ink.
Managed to make something I’m happy with. This has been a final product of the many tools I’ve been playing with. The jacket is washi tape, all the colours are a mix of Copic Markers and Kuretake Markers, and the line work is all done with a ballpoint pen, and I could not be happier.
By the way it looks warped, because I took a photo of it on an angle, and her head looks even smaller because of it, but I’m still very pleased.

I’m not the greatest at drawing expressive faces, but I think hers is saying “Piss Off” to someone. Which kind of embodies the mood I’ve been dealing with for a couple of months now (mostly caused by the dumpster fire I work at).
I just haven’t been creating because of it, and it’s making me upset because I can’t create. Also unless my efforts to create change for myself work, I likely won’t be contributing much to Inktober this year which makes me quite sad.
