This just screamed one style of card for me so I have abandoned the recycled christmas card box in favour of my christmas paper box. I had a look on You Tube to remind me on how to make the card and found so many variations that I sort of got carried away and ended up making six altogether and here they all are.
First card uses freebie papers from Making Cards 2015/2016 christmas papers. Sentiment is a clear stamp by Dovecraft 'Tis the Season'. Red card stock used to make the base card.
My second and third cards use papers by Dovecraft 'Back to basics christmas '. These were all snippets left over from a project I made a few yrs ago now. Snippet of ribbon was out on my desk so I used it!. Sentiment stamp also by Dovecraft. Card bases are made tent fold style.
On the fourth card I used the same design as on card 1 but repeated the pattern on the bottom half of the card to make a complete design . Papers are freebies from Making Cards Nov 2016.Sentiment is a clear stamp by Kaisercraft.
Fifth card again used the Starburst design but upright this time and the pattern has been inlaid onto a piece of card with spaces left between the papers and gives quite a different effect. Papers are freebies from Making Cards Nov 2016. Sentiment is by Hot off the press in their ' Forever christmas Cards paper stack.'
The sixth and last card is my own design. Papers are all from Hot off the press 'Forever christmas cards paper stack ' along with the Noel sentiment. I don't know why the card has come out this odd colour as the backing card is the same red as on the design papers. I have given up trying to work out the mysteries of my camera's choices! I laid the design papers onto card to make a complete pattern and then die cut out using my sizzix scallop circles. I think it sort of looks like the patchwork
As I have used loads and loads of snippets I'm off to play on the swings in the playground.
See you all there. If Miss has put the pogo sticks out don't touch em!!
