Christmas presents


Hi, I was inspired to make this card for a few of challenges.

Nessa at The Crafty Laydee is challenging us to create a frugal christmas card without using products designed for christmas.

I've used my Spellbinders dies, Stately embossing folder, snippets of designer paper and some sparkly silver ribbon. You are allowed to use a christmas sentiment!

Snippets means I can pop in again to the playground at Pixies Crafty Workshop.

Crafting with Dragonflies has a Use Your Scrap challenge. You need to use at least 5 pieces of designer paper on your project.  My sister gave me these A4 sheets of silver embossed dp some years ago. I've slowly been using them up and am glad to use up some of the scraps!

Crafty Hazlenut's Christmas Challenge Extra has an anything goes as long as it's christmas challenge for the month of September.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge has an Anything Goes theme.

Inspired by Stamping has a holiday theme.
