Good morning crafty friends, Santa is nearly starting his journey around the world! The food shopping is done, got to scrub the house this morning then I’m all ready for the festivities to begin.
I wanted to share a very different make for me, it was a Christmas card that I created for fans of the band The Charlatans…..
My very clever husband designed a phone app postcard for The Charlatans as part of a long running line of merchandise to show The Charlatans back catalogue in different ways. It was then decided that it would make an ideal Christmas card if turned into an actual phone which is where my paper skills came in!
The card featured 3D elements and a photo of The Charlatans. What made it extra special was the pocket containing a signed card from The Charlatan’s frontman Tim Burgess!
I sent the cards to Tim at their studio where they were rehearsing for their recent UK tour. Once they came back to my craft studio the fun began. After the cards were advertised on Twitter the response was amazing and the orders came flooding in!
In total I created around 100 individual hand-made cards which were then sent to Charlatans fans in the Uk and across the world. It was a labour of love for sure!
After lots of late nights crafting away this is what my craft studio floor looked like! It was a great experience to be involved in and it was great for Tim to get involved too. I also made a donation to The Brain Tumour Charity from The Charlatans fans in memory of their drummer Jon Brookes.
Same again next year?
