Time once again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our latest makes. rita chose the theme of Christmas Sentiments. I am a tad late posting as I had a slight altercation with a pair of sissors that I was cleaning the sticky tape residue from and sliced my thumb instead. How much mess can one tiny .05mm slit make!! It took three layers of micro tape one on top of the other to stem the flow. Live and learn and as I didn't want to mark any of the cards I waited until today to finish making and take photos.
I decided to use up all the scraps of christmas paper left over from previous cards that I have already made and stuck them onto backing paper in a random pattern. some on the diagonal and others just in a straight row. Most of the backing sheets were only 3" x 4" or 3" x 1.5". I just kept going until I had only tiny slivers of paper left. Then I pulled out all my sentiment dies some large some smaller and used the backing sheets strips to die cut them out.
These are the resulting cards I managed to make. All the dies are tonic studios and I raided my gem stash to complete each one.
I still have loads already die cut out so they will go on future cards as they are mostly just single sentiments.
Not bad for a pile of snippets that most would have consigned to the bin! Fidly yes but then I am not going any place soon so time is not of the essence.
