This week's first Christmas card

I have a feeling that by now some of you are waiting to catch me out, and spot a week when I don't post two Christmas cards. Well, I'm sure I'll slip up, but not yet!

This cute card has been made out of the last few snippets from a booklet of Holly Hobbie papers, a magazine freebie from a few years ago. I just have one piece left now, slightly smaller than half an A4 sheet, then I will have used up the whole booklet. There wasn't enough of any one paper to cover the whole card front so I had to make up a layout that looked as if it had been planned that way.

I've added a snow scene made on a Speelbinders die cut scalloped square - the die cut trees, stamped and die cut snow bunnies and robin and the stamped greeting were all sent to me in a swap with a friend. I think the stamps were Lawn Fawn ones but I wouldn't stake my life on it.

I'm sharing this with Pixie's Snippets Playground where the sharp eyed among you might spot some snippets of the papers I've used for the banners on my circles card from last week
and at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge where this week it is Cute, or anything goes
Use Your Stuff - 3 or more patterned papers - I used 4


  1. Aw Jane, this is so sweet! Love those fresh looking snippets you used so well - and the whole card is just lovely.

  2. A lovely snippets "sketch" card Jane. What a shame those pretty papers have nearly gone. Perhaps I should say well done using up your old stash! It's a very pretty card. Barbxx
