This year for Christmas, I've decided to make my own Christmas cards for my loved ones.
The fascination of recycling is is still my passion, so I've found a big pile of free postcards, that has been hidden away for many years now. With some gold leaf, glittering glue, a drawing - the cards have turned out to be very personal.. But I don't have in mind to make 20 or something!
Started out with at pencil sketch..

Gave her life with crayons, added a bit of shadows and so.. You know.

And finally, "messed" her up with glue, glitter, goldleaf, etc.
("God Jul" Means "Merry Christmas" in Danish)

Made another one (-and another, and another.. But they're not dry yet!)

Well, in a couple of days, these cards are arriving to my beloved family. Giving them a smile and a warm Christmas thought, is just as joyful as it is to make them..
Nothing beats a day like this. To make creative stuff, just give me the peace and relaxation I need so much, these days.

Merry Christmas, folks c")

Glædelig 1. Søndag i Advent! c")
