A pack of cards

It's time for a time for another challenge for the Christmas Card Club and it was the lovely Clare's turn to choose the topic. She asked us to make 'anything but a card' and added ....

 "I do not want you to make "a" card. You can make a set of cards ie, a gift box of cards, a pack of Christmas cards (like say 4). Or you can completely go different and make something other than a card. Some idea's are a gift tag/s, gift bag or box, scrapbook page, Christmas decoration, Christmas gift which is handmade..........anything you desire as long as it's Christmas."

So I've made a set of five cards because I make packs like this to sell for Tearfund when it gets nearer to Christmas.

I've used different pieces of offcuts of papers that I've had for a few years now - by using three different papers on each card I managed to find enough offcuts to use on all five cards. I've added some sparkly trees that I got in a candy win from Handy Hippo and the Father Christmases and the holly are remains of a kit I bought a long time ago.
