Sooooo, I've made a start on my Christmas cards. These aren't my first (I will share those eventually), but these are my favourite so far:
I made these using some LOTV Crafty Christmas papers, which I die-cut to a circle. I then die-cut some scraps of ivory pearl card and cut them in half with a wavy pattern and layered this on top of the circle to give the effect of the custard/cream/brandy sauce/whatever you have on top of your Christmas pudding.
