Christmas cards made from recycled Packaging.

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going. We are both invigilating this week and the first part of next week. These are practice exams for the Year 10s. There isn't much time to craft. It is lovely to have this afternoon off today. This means we can catch up with a few things. 

I should have been working on a different project but I ended up making two Christmas cards from some packaging I had been saving. 


The background is the packaging I had been saving. It was just too pretty to throw away. The craft card I used comes between the layers in a takeaway box from M&S. I did add the Snowflakes corner dies from the John Next Door range. I have used these corners so much. 


I found two matching old Christmas Cards and I cut out the image and its mats with a mix of dies from the John Next Door range. 


The greeting was cut into the card with the Christmas Stencil Sentiment dies also from the John Next Door range. 


So that is another two cards for my Christmas stash. Now I must get on with the project I have been putting off. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
