Scrappy Sunday - Cards from Embossed Panels

Hello Again,

I've been searching through a box of leftover scraps with the idea of finding something suitable to make Christmas cards with. I'd forgotten these that I'd embossed some time ago - perfect!

They were very quick and easy cards to make. All I did was choose some Christmassy patterned papers, adhere them them to the card base, wrap matching ribbon/twine around the panels and then attach them, using foam tape for added dimension, and that was it. Simples!

Supplies used:

  • white A6 card blanks from Docraft's Papermania range
  • patterned paper from a couple of very old pads - Memory Box & BoBunny's Silver & Gold Collection - and a new one from The Works, the Winter Wonder paper pad
  • leftover scraps of white card embossed with the following: Winter Botanicals by Sizzix; Snowflake Swirl from Darice; Merry Christmas from Crafts-Too
  • ribbons and twine from stash ... the twine was found in a local garden centre

A quick Google search showed that the Darice folder is still available at Buddly Crafts and the Crafts-Too folder is on the Maddy Lisa Crafts site but there's no listing for the two older paper pads and the Sizzix folder than I can find.

It's quite some time since I joined in with Hazel's CHNC challenge - well, I haven't been making Christmas cards until recently - but I noticed that for this week, Challenge 408, not only does anything go as long as it's Christmas but the optional theme is for a sentiment to be the focal point ... the third card fits the bill perfectly.

After today starting badly, rain, rain and more rain, it has dried up and the sun has come out ... typically Scottish weather!

It's back to the MTS Cyber Crop for me now. I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
