This morning I thought I would make a card for Jules Crafty Snippet challenge as I missed last week so I had a little rummage in the snippets box to find a few bits and pieces to make a Cristmas card. I am so glad I did as this card has turned out to be my favourite Christmas card make so far this year!! I enjoyed myself so much I made a tag to match, I'll add a piece of ribbon to the tag when I know which wrapping paper I will be using.
For this card I used a Spellbinders poinsettia set which I bought last year this is the first time I have used it. I think they have released a new one this year which I prefer but I cannot afford another so this one will have to do! First I found a scrap of red paper which I stamped with a Waltzingmouse text stamp to add a little detail. I then cut several different flowers and curled up the petals slightly. There is no leaf die in the set so I decided to stamp some holly leaves using a stamp from Waltzingmouse Festive Foilage. As you can see I used lots of snippets of green paper and I like the effect of using different colours and patterns.
I layered up some more snippets for the background and stitched it all together. the sentiment is another Waltzingmouse stamp (can you tell I am a bit of a fan of Claire's stamps?)
The tag just took a few minutes to put together using some of the smaller snippets.
I'm entering these into the following challenges;
Stamptacular Sunday - Punch It (includes die cuts)
Make it Monday - Anything goes
St Lukes Charity card Challenge - Christmas
Bunny Zoe's Craft Challenge - Anything Christmas with pearls (pearl brad)
