A Christmas card from scraps and snippets…

Hello and welcome to my blog. For this week’s sketch challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown I decided to go all eclectic, using up snippets of paper and dies I had cut for other projects but not used …


I keep my scraps and snippets in clear bags – handy for adding to my cards. I chose two complimentary patterns of dsp for the background, together with a fussy cut tag topper from the same paper pack …


The balsa wood die cut circle added texture, and I added an embossed die cut heart to the centre of the tag, and some punch art holly too …


And to finish off, the stamped greeting seemed to work well so I popped that up on dimensionals, and then added a glittery punched star for Christmas sparkle …


hope you like my card for this week. The Design Team has created lots of lovely cards to inspire you, so do pop over to 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge blog to take a look.
