Over at Cut it Up Challenges, we’re getting a jump start on our holiday cards, and invite you to do the same.
At the same time, I’m using up some leftovers, which I always love to do. When I cut a file using my cutting machine, I always make as many of one file as can fit on a mat just so that I have leftovers!! They really come in handy when you need to make a fast card or gift. Anyway, last Christmas I made lots of Santa bookmarks and had three left over. I wanted to find a way to incorporate them into cards for this year. This is what I came up with:
The Santa was a freebie from Treasure Box Designs. The chimney is from page 64 of Simply Charmed (without the face) I made two shadows for each card, and used my ATG gun around three edges to make a pocket for the bookmark to go in. The Ho Ho Ho sentiment is from My Scrap Chick. These were so much fun to make, and I got a start on my holiday cards to boot!
