I had been shuffling through some papers the other day ... as you do ... and came across the Papermania 'Naughty and Nice' collection from last year which contains lovely modern funky patterns, including a couple of text sheets.
Originally I intended to cut a large piece and layer it onto a card ... add some ribbon and maybe a snowflake or something. But, as often happens, I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to be a teeny weeny bit more adventurous.
I matted the star paper onto the bottom section of some pink glitter card and adhered it to an 8" x 8" square card blank.
Then I cut a strip of flourescent green card with decorative scissors and added a length of brown ribbon before placing this over the join with foam pads.After cutting 'Happy Christmas' from the text sheet I glued this onto the pink glitter card and cut around it with the same decorative scissors as before, doing the same again with the green card and then mounting the whole thing at the top of the card.
In hindsight I think it still looks a little unfinished but will possibly add some adhesive stars or gems across the ribbon as extra decoration before I post it.
Inside I simply used offcuts of the same paper and card to make a centre panel for the greeting.
To see what the other Bah Humbuggers, including out Guest designer Anne, have been up to, just pop across and take a peek and if you'd like to join in, then you'll be sure of a warm welcome.
PS: Do you like my new custom stamp which arrived the other day? Found Craft Stamps Online who will turn your own designs and layout into a clear stamp - so I sent off my design created in PSP and 3 days later received my unique stamp. Cool Huh?
