Christmas card using Stampin Up paper scraps and die cuts

Hello and welcome.

Can’t quite believe we are on the last challenge of the month for May over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown – where did this month go to?! It’ll soon be Christmas!

I’ve recently been giving myself a personal challenge to use up my paper scraps, so this challenge is just perfect for me as that’s exactly what it challenges us to do – use your scraps!

So, from my treasure chest of scraps, I found these co-ordinating papers and die cut pieces for my card…

I started with a piece of very vanilla card to make the base, and adhered strips of paper and crumb cake card, sandwiching a piece of gold embossed vellum between two of the papers too, all from Stampin Up.

The die cut trees, gifted to me by a friend, matched beautifully with the coloured polka dots in the paper.

Finally, I added a star, punched from gold glitter card, echoing the gold of the embossing in the vellum, and corner rounded the top right corner.

I love how this turned out – it used up so many of my scraps and has the added bonus that it’s flat for posting.

I hope you’ve been inspired to join the challenge this week – we’d love to see what you make.

Enjoy your weekend.
