Handmade Christmas Cards by Beryl Deacon

Here are some handmade Christmas cards by Beryl Deacon. Beryl is one of our readers and has graciously emailed me these handmade Christmas greeting cards for the website.

When I asked Beryl to tell me a little about herself, this is her reply:

Beryl said: Well I live in Essex and these are some my third lot of Christmas cards! I enjoy all kinds of methods [stamping, peeloffs, spirella, iris folding, fabric,] and am trying to get to grips with lace and pergamano - still have to try stencilling!

There's so much out there, every time I go shopping, or watch demos, I'm tempted to have a go! Addicted, my family say. I just love my hobby and all my family and friends now receive handmade greetings cards for every occasion in their lives.

Thank you, Beryl for agreeing to share with us some of your many handmade Christmas cards.

Well, I hope that from viewing these handmade Christmas cards by Beryl Deacon, you will be inspired to make your own Christmas cards this Christmas.
