Anything but Square.

A bit short on time so I only managed to make one card for the Christmas Card Club . The Theme was set by Sylvie who asked for Anything but Square.  I knew though that I had just the used card front in my christmas card box that would be perfect. Trimmed the straight edge very slightly and adhered to a dark green cardstock square base. Fussy cut round the fancy edge of the card. The original card had been one that flapped over so I left that part loose on the card but it is quite hard to see in this photo.

 By a happy coincidence  I found a sheet of design paper in my stash that had an almost identical  Father Christmas image  on it which I trimmed down and attached to the inside of the card. The paper was a freebie in Making Cards Magazine December 2015 called Traditional Christmas.
Close up of the  paper. What do you think?



 Just got time to see what the other girls in the club have made.

Gr,Sylvia.

I think it is Just Fabulous! Your ideas on using your treasure box cards always amaze me. Clever to trim into this shape and how fortunate you could find a similar theme to decorate the inside too. Bet that was a bit of tedious fussy cutting as well. TFS & Hugs
