Kraft Christmas cards?

I was inspired to get my Stamps Away patchwork tremplates out, having seen Di make a card with then a week or so ago. I used these a lot when I first got them, then put them away and you know what it's like 'out of sight....'

So I made this one..

It's 15cm square card blank covered with a leftover piece of 12x12. I used snippets from papermanias First Noel pack. And this creates more snippets! Aaaargh!  So I had to use them straight away ...

This time I mixed in snippets from Papermanias  Traditional Christmas pack. Ten it needed a bit of bling so I added a die cut greeting and some snowflakes. This one is on a Kraft card blank and I don't think I like this as a base for a Christmas Card. So I doodled faux stitching around the outside edge, and dots of Stickles glitter glue round the paper sections. Still not thrilled. 

Anyone else used Kraft card for Chriymas cards and liked the end result???

Anyway, off to visit the Snippets playground to see what the playmates are up to. Thanks for reminding me about the templates Di!!

Thanks for stopping by

  1. Hi Debs, these are super cards - love the mix of papers. I have these templates too and, like you, tend to forget they are there. Maybe I should leave them out on my desk to prompt me ... but then, if I did that with everything I forget about I wouldn't be able to see my desk for stuff :) Elizabeth xx

  2. Great cards Debs - the production of more snippets is an ongoing problem I think! I like the Kraft card as it looks sort of 'Country Christmas'. And you used those templates perfectly - have to confess that I don't always think of stuff that's tucked away - which is probably 99% of it!!

    Hugs, Di xx

  3. Hi Debs,

  5. Now and again I use Karft and I love it. I like to combine it with juste twine and hessian. And maybe even a bit of linen or canvas.

    Your patchwork cards look great. Those templates are such a good idea.

  6. These are so pretty and what a great use of snippets! I love the little added tags on each card! I use kraft often with all my cards, and especially for Christmas this year. I love it paired with red, green, and brown!

  7. This is a lovely card Debs and the kraft card looks good with the red dp, a d the templates are a great idea for using up scraps. Thank you for uour lovelyco ment. Hope you are feeling better now. x
