Christmas cards using last years leftovers…

IMG_5498 (Medium)I gathered all my Kaisercraft christmas papers from christmas’s past.. ( these included Turtle dove,december 25th,Dear Santa, Tis the Season and twig and Berry) and combined them all. Every one who knows me will tell you this was very hard for me as I always keep my collections separate, and never mix and match!I still won’t mix paper companies. It was not too bad, as most of the collections had very similar colours. Anyway,once that was done I went through the paper pads, and fussy cut, and took out border and labels die cuts that I hadn’t used previously and put these in a separate pile. Next I combined all the collectables into one container,and after all that it was very hard to tell the different collections anyway.First I worked on the wider strips that are left behind when I had covered the original cards and the two cards above are the result of that. I added a collectable to both, some words fussy cut from a nother piece of paper, and some craftworks candii in the top corner of the card on the right.More strip makes tomorrow…. Til tomorrow….

  1. Oh boy, Christmas cards!! They are great and good idea to mix the papers up!
    I need to get started,,,,

  2. Nice cards. I have those strips too.. I will probably copy your idea except I don’t have that nice collectable. Thankyou.
