Here's another I made earlier

This is another card I made earlier - this time Santa is riding in his sleigh above the rooftops of the Kanban decoupaged image, simply mounted on a lilac 7 x 5 card blank with a sentiment. I've had this decoupaged image made up for ages, just waiting to be put on a card.

Santa on the rooftops

Another decoupaged card from an old Kanban kit, mounted on to a piece of paper that was free with a magazine a long time ago.

Getting ready for Christmas

Yes, I know it's a long way off, but I've been making Christmas cards throughout the year. These two are very similar, depicting a decoupaged lady loaded up with shopping. The background paper and the decoupage are Jolly Nation. I tore the edges of the paper and added a sentiment and some gingham ribbon. Both the white background and the pink background papers were offcuts, so this is my first time of the week at Pixie's crafty snippets 29 and also for Hiding in my craftroom 54: super scraps Saturday.

Everything I used for these cards was bought years ago (about time I used it) - in fact the decoupage had been made up ages ago and was waiting to be putting on cards - so this is for Waste not Wednesday 26: use your stash.

Walking in a winter wonderland

These two cards are very similar - they both have backing paper by Memory Box yuletide. They both have Kanban decoupaged images - for Hotshot craft 10: Kanban - just with a different background colour.

Christmas green

The toppers for this card are from an old Kanban kit - for Hotshot craft 10: Kanban - and the papers are Memory box yuletide (I do like these). The image frame is matted on to green mirror card (doesn't show here).

Christmas fun

It's time for another challenge for the Christmas Card Club and it was Sue's turn to pick the theme and she has asked for humorous Christmas cards. The background paper is from the Cosy Christmas collection that came with Quick Cards a month or two ago. I've used an Anita's stamp coloured simply with a red copic, mounted on to red mirror card. The wording was computer generated and also mounted on to red mirror card. The answer is on a tag tucked into the side of the picture.
