More Snippets Christmas Cards

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? Just to let you know that I had a lovely time at the Newbury Craft show. The new organisers did a fantastic job. I came away with quite few new crafty goodies. Yesterday I met my husband in Southampton so we could go the the cinema we ended up seeing Rocketman.  This was better than we expected. Today I am having lunch with a group of people that I used to work with. Being retired does have it's upsides.

I have been making Christmas cards again. You could say that I am obsessed with making cards using Snippets.

There are just so many strips of paper around to make backgrounds with. Funny thing how ever many cards I make the pile never seems to get any smaller. 

I used the deer from the Winter Wonderland die set from Sizzix. They were cut from Kraft Card and coloured with Distress ink. The ribbon in the background came from some craft stash that I inherited. 

This is the second card. I do like this design I will probably make some more cards like this. 

This is the Noel Word Die from Lil' inker Designs. 

Here are the cards together. More for my stash of Christmas cards. 

I would like to enter the following challenges: 

Happy Crafting

Great cards Jackie. This is a brilliant technique for using up scraps. I used to make cards many moons ago with fabric strips in a very similar style and I never seemed to make a difference to my scrap box either.

Such sweet Christmas cards with the deer! And, love the fun sentiment! Thanks so much for joining us at Dies R Us for the challenge!

Wonderful cards Jackie and super use of snippets. I adore the striped backgrounds - and the deer die cut goes so well with the sentiment! Who would have thought to use them both together - and it's great to see you using the Noel Antlers die from your Snippets win at Christmas in the Playground! And Stamperama seems to be really good from reports I'm hearing!
