I have found time to make a few of my own cards this year... but they were quick!
Nothing terribly sophisticated. A triangle of green paper and a small rectangle of patterned paper glued down onto a card. Add a star shaped sequin and a few pearly buttons and there you have it. PVA glue works for the buttons.
See, I told you there might be tutorials in amongst all these advent posts! Blink and you might have missed it.
And depending on your background card colour... you get totally different effects. And whilst we're talking different colours you could use multi-coloured buttons... or all red buttons... you get the idea!
It's all clever stuff round here you know!
