Christmas boxes

It looks as if mum is laden with Christmas boxes - this is another Jolly Nation decoupage with matching paper - another offcut from the bottom of the box for Pixie's crafty snippets 29 and Hiding in my craftroom 54: super scraps Saturday. I remember that I made quite a few JN decoupage cards a few years back which is why I've found some pieces lurking at the bottom of the box.

From our home to yours

I'm still trying to use up old Christmas stock - this is a Kanban topper and frame from an old kit, mounted on to a lilac 7 x 5 card blank, with a sentiment added.

Shepherd boys

Three very similar cards put together with some very old Paper Nation supplies - the shepherd boys are decoupaged. I just tore the edges of the paper and added some stitched ribbon.

All papers used were offcuts that had been lurking at the bottom of the box for years (and there's still more there!) so these are for Pixie's crafty snippets 29 and Hiding in my craftroom 54: super scraps Saturday.

Photos are awful - took them outside yesterday before the light faded - would take them again today, but it's raining (yet again!).

Bright blue star

This card is A5 size, using a blue and silver foiled background and a glittery foiled image - both from old Kanban kits (I really am trying to use up the old stuff).

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 81: twinkle, twinkle, little star - if you haven't yet discovered my Christmas blog, please click on the link and have a look - and hopefully get started with your Christmas cards.

More Christmas decoupage

Two more cards that I put together yesterday. In fact the Kanban decoupaged pictures (from a very old kit) had been put together a while ago - they had just been waiting to be put on to card blanks.
