LAST ONE....LAST ONE!!!! Here is my last Christmas in July card to share with you made from odds and ends from my holiday stash box. Did all these cards make a dent in my scraps???? Nope. Not even close! lol.... But I sure had fun making them and it did feel good to use some things that had been sitting around for a long time.
Recently I won a very, very generous prize from Pretty Little Studio. Included in the package was a little assortment of vintage Christmas critters...mostly adorable bunnies! I love the PLS critters and wanted to make one of the busy collage cards that I see little vintage die cuts featured in. I'm not very good at making these cards.....mine usually end up looking like my stash box got spilled on the floor in a puddle of glue!!! Bwahahaha!!
But I got brave and opened up my box and pulled out a PLS holiday JOY Bingo card and a bunch of other little odds and ends that might coordinate....a snowflake (which I backed in vellum), a little die-cut button, a red doily, and some adhesive pearls along with a background of very old patterned paper.
Here's the card I came up with....what do you think? I really like it....esp for a first attempt with these supplies.
Supplies used include:
Pretty Little Studio Vintage Holiday Die Cuts and Journaling Cards
Memory Box - Lindeman Snowflake die
Poppystamps - Button Oval die set
Doodlebug - Mini Doilies
Scraps of Patterned Paper and Vellum
Want 2 Scrap - Adhesive Pearls
