Christmas card from scraps

Hello and thanks for joining me today.

When I showed you the Christmas crackers I made a few days ago I mentioned that I had saved the 1/2″ strips of paper left over to be used on another project.

Well, this is what I did with some of them…

This card was inspired by a card made by my friend Victoria Littlewood of VickieLouDesigns.Blogspot.com; that she’d made using scraps of card – click here to see it. I really liked her diagonal design so I copied it.

I made my usual card base from Whisper White thick card measuring 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. I then added a layer of Night Of Navy card measuring 10 x 14 cm.

I cut a piece of Whisper White card to measure 9.5 x 13.5 cm and started adding my diagonal strips of left over Night Before Christmas designer series paper (DSP) with a little gap in between them. I trimmed off the excess DSP around each side of the white card.

I used the Jolly Season dies to cut the sentiment from Night of Navy card and to cut the gift and the stocking from a sheet of the Night Before Christmas designers series paper. I added these to a piece of Old Olive card just wide enough for the sentiment with foam adhesive strips and trimmed off the excess at each end. I then added this layer to my card base.

Inside the card I added the other part of the sentiment die cut from Night Of Navy card…

I really do think this suite is jolly and so much fun. I hope you agree.
