Handmade Christmas Cards with Belle & Boo

Every year I like to make Christmas cards for those special people who deserve something a little more personal. This year we were sent some simply gorgeous Christmas craft supplies from Belle & Boo. You may remember me writing about their craft range before.

There is nothing more special than spending a little bit of time to make something really lovely to give to someone and these supplies have helped us easily make some really stunning cards.

When I saw the pretty christmas paper and decoupage sets I knew they would make gorgeous christmas cards. We had some blank cards and the girls and I sat down with hot chocolates and got crafting!

I’m not sure that my photos do justice to the stunning detail on the decoupage kits. They are so cute and pretty and I love the glitter detail. They were really easy to use and Bean was very happy to sit down and make lots of these herself.

We prettied some of the backgrounds to the cards with some of the Belle & Boo christmas papers – I think they look really effective!

They also do a stamp range – including christmas ones – perfect for embellishing the cards. JB loved this and coloured in the stamp print – I think it actually looks quite striking!

I used some gold gel pens to finish off some of the cards. I’d love to know what you think – I’m really looking forward to sending these out this year.

    Beautiful cards. I prefer a home made card to store bought but I appreciate most people don’t have the time to sit and make them.

    Beautiful cards. I am still not in the Christmas mood and writing Christmas cards isn’t a big fan here in Germany, but I do miss the traditions.

    I love handmade Christmas Cards at Christmas time. They are such a lovely thing to gift others. I always find that when I receive them at Christmas, I think how long it has taken to make them.

    Wow, these cards are absolutely beautiful 🙂
    Well done both of you, you clearly had a blast making them, such fun.
    I can’t wait to do bits and bobs like this when Lily is older
