This morning, I pulled out this great 12x12 sheet and cut it apart. I ended up choosing these seven pieces to create cards.
I thought these four would be perfect for gifts tags.
And I'm saving this last one to use as a journaling block on a scrapbook page.
I pulled seven card bases from my stash.
As you can see, just adhering these 3x4 pieces to the card bases would have made cute cards.
However, I like the look of layering, so I pulled several pieces of coordinating cardstock and patterned paper from my scrap basket.
Then it was simply a matter of cutting papers, chalking the edges, layering, and adhering
Here's a look before and after the layering together - see how those layers add extra charm and complete the cards.
For the gift tags, I cut a piece of red cardstock into tag bases, then added a few paper layers and ribbons/fibers so I can easily adhere or tie these to gifts.
Typically, I have all my Christmas cards created by this time of year. However, I only have about half the number I need right now! Luckily, I have another sheet of 3x4 cut-outs (from the Photo Play Luke 2 Collection) that I can use to create another quick batch of cards soon.
