Here and Now: Christmas cards

My son works with a school with differently abled children as a community and service activity from his school. He feels so enriched when ever he returns back from there. He always says ... we spend a few hours with them and get back so much of love and warmth that is a treasure to keep for life. Currently he is teaching the children music and loves their eagerness to learn and perform.

He will be going there again this Saturday and will be taking Christmas gifts for 2 children fulfilling their wish list. These are the cards I made for them to go with the gift. Hope it brightens their day!


There are some punched strips at the border of the cards. The oval border is outlined by Fevicryl 3D glitter outliner. The Christmas tree, star, and gifts are quilled and the tree and stars have been painted with silver and gold glitter outliner and the ground line below the tree is also with the 3D outliner. the gifts have silk thread wound around to represent a ribbon. The sentiment is stamped and heat embossed. The area between the oval border and rectangle border is distressed with inks.
