Cardmaking

Garlands Galore and Using Chipboard Uniquely

I’m back with a couple more cards following challenges as part of Shimelle’s Christmas crafting weekend. First up, the challenge to use a garland on a project:

I had so much fun using up scraps of Christmas paper to make the flags on the garland, that I also added a few to one of my JYC papers so it’s pre-embellished:
I also made a card following the inspiration of Leah Farquharson (cool name!). I chose to use the idea of taking a supply and using it in a different-than-expected way. I used some chipboard photo corners, sticking four together at a time into a square shape, and adding a bow on top to make Christmas presents:
I quite like the bright pink-green-brown colour combo on this one, I shall try to make some more cards with these papers.
I’ve got a few more things I want to make from the inspiration this weekend, including dates for my JYC album, and some gift tags for present wrapping. I’m loving getting some of these things out of the way early, I usually leave it all until December and then have a mad rush and don’t get it all done! Fingers crossed I’ll get everything done that I have planned this year. x
