Scrappy Christmas!

I have (yet!) more Christmas cards to share today...some really quick and simple ones using up some of the last scraps of paper from my 'Merry Little Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye - I've loved this pad and now only have a few 'odd' bits left! I used a piece of each paper to cover part of my card blank (these are A6...the paper scraps weren't really big enough for my usual square cards) cutting a wavy edge freehand. I stamped a sentiment (from the 'Very Merry Christmas' set) on to each card, then simply added some die cut snowflakes...cut using Cuttlebug dies from more scraps of card.


Here are some close-ups of the cards...the cards are all straight - it's my photography that's wonky!




Challenges for these cards:

A lovely selection of snippets cards Helen! Isn't it great making lovely cards from what might have been thrown away. So nice that you used to play over at Jules' and I do hope you come back to play again!

Very pretty Christmas cards Helen. Isn't it a shame when you finish up a pad of paper that you really like. Barbxx
